Our works within railway arches are not just limited to the several teams we have out every day carrying out brickwork and other repairs across London and the Southeast.

We are often called upon to assist with surveying these arches for several clients allowing them to assess the works needed for repair, refurbishment or more importantly bringing these structures back to life after long periods of un-occupation.

The geographic diversity of these properties oftens involves careful planning and liaising with existing tenants and other stakeholders to carry out these surveying works safely and in a timely manner. The types of services we can offer are varied and not limited to:

  • Arch stripping and reinstatement of cladding to allow surveys
  • Site Supervision
  • Vegetation clearance
  • Electrical assistance
  • Pasma & IPAF operatives
  • General Labour
  • Waste removal

With the thousands of arches across the network, many have become the home to a wide selection of businesses from small independents to national/global chains. The re-instatement to occupied use of these arches plays a key role in bolstering local economies and driving innovation and new business, from microbreweries, artist studios, cafes and more.

Our experience in carrying out these surveying works, along with our years spent working on structural repairs puts us in a unique position, the knowledge our teams have is called upon time and time again by our clients in solving access issues, working requirements within the arches, technical problems – the list goes on! In fact, we can provide a complete turnkey solution to the redevelopment of arches across the country – do get in touch!
