We offer a ground up service, totally focused on our clients, our mission is to provide an alternative approach, disproving the myth that large consultants provide the best service.
We build relationships with our clients, get to know them and provide a bespoke personal service based on discussion not on assumption.
We have a core offering of track and civil design engineering utilising our skills to design and manage projects of all scales. Senior members of the team have individual project experience ranging from 20 to 25 years, positioning them as excellent project managers.
This knowledge allows us to pull together specialist design partners to complement our in house offering and manage fully multidisciplinary projects highly effectively while providing the highest possible level of value to the client. We pride ourselves on adding value to projects, where we feel your requirements are better suited to one of our design partners, we will happily provide you with contacts and assist where we can.
Track Design (or more formally Permanent Way Design)
We have a handpicked expert team of track designers who between them have experience of every type of track scheme. The track is usually the starting point to which all other engineering disciplines design around, for this reason, our track designers have a huge wealth of cross discipline understanding and experience.
Civil Engineering Design
Our team has a wealth of experience; rail civil engineering covers a vast section of the market with projects ranging from a sign foundation through to a complete station remodelling or tunnelling project. The extensive experience of our team allows us to cover practically every type of civil engineering project and provide design solutions and management capabilities to suit our client’s requirements.
At Bonner Rail we believe that a design is only as good as the survey it is based on. We provide high quality survey deliverables for a vast range of projects, using our internal surveying capability supported by highly specialised support when required. Surveying is all about detail and accuracy, with an additional emphasis on accuracy for rail surveys specifically due to the allowable level of tolerance. Our surveyors are rail specific and our design team provide both office and site based input. This is a very broad discipline, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Bonner Rail’s project management service supports our Clients to co-ordinate, prioritise, plan and deliver projects and design management. Our service is designed to enable our Clients to implement projects without needing comprehensive in-house expertise; minimising the associated risks whilst enabling the Client to maintain business as usual operations.
We assess each project in terms of its business-critical interfaces with stakeholders and other projects to develop and implement a solution that is focused on helping the client meet their targets and objectives as quickly and economically as possible. Our services extend across a project’s life cycle from defining and clarifying the project’s objectives through to project execution and handback.
Our engineers have experience of working within OLE design teams and have close working relationships with our partner designers playing a crucial role in coordinating the design operations and interfaces between all disciplines. Track and traction power, be it AC or DC are intrinsically linked, we design from a holistic perspective and not within discipline silo’s.
Signalling Design/Depot Protection
All our senior team members have worked with signalling design teams, either internally within other companies or with our design partners at Bonner Rail. Signalling is an incredibly specialised skill and as with any limited resource, a good team is invaluable. We work with two trusted design organisations and draw from their vast experience when our clients need signalling support.
We have a close working relationship with our design partners, having worked together on many multidisciplinary projects, including station remodelling. platform extensions and depot enhancement schemes.
We have established good links with suppliers of specialist equipment during our careers and can provide advice and integrated design solutions for equipment such as sliding buffers, resilient track fixings, CET, fuelling points, help points, prefabricated platform systems, jacking points.
