Delivering rail projects

Delivering rail projects

The railways present one of the most demanding environments in which to successfully deliver projects. Technically complex and within a safety-critical environment, rail project management must also respond to the different agendas of the multiple stakeholders who own the assets, operate the services and regulate the network.

These challenges are currently being compounded by a skills shortage in key disciplines, leading to greater risk of delays and the need to apply ever more foresight and creativity in project management.

How we can help

The SLC Rail delivery team is led by highly experienced rail project managers. We work as part of your team, running each project, scrutinising changes and managing contractors to keep your interests foremost.

We are well versed in the Network Rail methodology for rail investment projects (Governance of Railway Investment Projects or 'GRIP') and our people have been applying it successfully for 15 years. Within this framework we apply finely-honed skills including resource management, financial control, stakeholder management, securing the plethora of consents, land assembly, risk management, design management, procurement of design and build contractors and contract management.

Our project managers are particularly adept at negotiating with the different rail industry stakeholders, with the experience, expertise and judgement to understand the underlying reasons for challenges or objections and the skill to present solutions in terms that are understandable and sufficiently persuasive to achieve agreement and the many industry consents required.

An outstanding track record

By being involved early in rail scheme development we have helped our clients to develop projects that provide stakeholder value while offering a harmonious fit into the existing rail environment. Combined with our rail project management expertise, this has enabled us to deliver an exceptionally high proportion of projects on time and on budget.
