How we work

Driven by a fundamental belief in the value of rail.

We are guided in everything we do by some key principles – the SLC Way – that run through every part of our business.

We are passionate about the economic value of rail, locally and nationally. We are driven by the impact that an enhanced railway network can have on people’s lives and on business.

We will always start by understanding your strategic objectives, and how – indeed, whether – those can be fulfilled through enhancements to the rail network.

Our motivation comes from seeing the first passengers walk through the doors, so we only work on projects we really believe in; we will tell you if we don’t think a scheme is right.

The SLC Way is to nurture long-standing partnerships with our clients, to embed ourselves within your team and develop a deep understanding of your vision, putting your objectives first at every stage.

We are not afraid to challenge – ourselves, you and rail industry partners – to achieve the best outcomes, while maintaining the excellent relationships we have built over many years.

We provide expert support and advice from the earliest ideas stage, through the development and design phases, right through to delivering the end product.

We use our direct, personal experience of innovative investment and scheme delivery to guide you through the complexities of developing railway projects to deliver successful outcomes.

We are active members of professional and industry bodies, supporting our continuing development and allowing us to contribute to learning and standards in the industry. Individually, our people are involved at all levels from Graduate through to Chartered and Fellowship.

We are accredited under the Rail Safety and Standards Board RISQS scheme, authorising our operations in the rail environment.
