AW Rail Brickwork Services


AW Rail have been carrying out brickwork repairs and offering solutions to the UK’s rail infrastructure for the last 10 years, the combined knowledge of our operatives and management spans several decades. Conducting this work through a variety of different Tier 1 Framework Contractors, gaining a wealth of experience and knowledge on railway structures from simple single span bridge to more complex viaduct spans, tunnel, and station buildings.

Our competent PTS qualified brickwork specialists can work trackside, allowing us to work within restricted areas should this be required. Our experience of working within the rail environment on a wide range of works, means we are familiar with Network Rail standards, specifications, policies and procedures, enabling us to deliver high quality work, using specified materials alongside approved methodologies and safe working practice.

Combine this with our knowledge of working on the rail infrastructure means that we can also arrange several other factors to complete brickwork projects, whether this be line closures or blockages, safe access points or providing competent staff to manage and oversee the works involved.

AW Rail regularly carry out brickwork and masonry repairs in locations that often present difficult working conditions, our ongoing works within the London Arches Framework have led us to be innovative in our approach to these works, our operatives often having to carry out repairs at height and in difficult circumstances.

With the longevity of these contracts, we have at our disposal a highly experienced team of brickwork operatives, some with decades of experience working within and on the rail infrastructure across the UK. This experience in undertaking the strengthening, restoration or repair of structures using a variety of techniques enables us to offer our clients a variety of solutions to their needs or structure repairs.

The maintenance of brick or stonework across the network covers an exhaustive list of specialities, sometimes simple solutions like the removal and cover up of graffiti or herbicide treatment to stop the growth and invasiveness of vegetation, preventative maintenance schedules, weep hole clearance and repairs all goes to keeping the integrity and safety of line side buildings and structures intact.

Our knowledge and experience of working to tight timescales and constraints for different environments that the railway presents, keeping people on the move and safe, the railway line and stations operational, means our projects are delivered with minimum disruption to our stakeholders.

    Contracts Manager - Octavius
  • Over the years you and your team have supplied Keltbray with various high skilled staff who have conducted themselves very well in every situation and have worked up a rapport with some site staff from Keltbray meaning they are on first name basis and are specifically asked for on future works. Staff sometimes move around at the last minute to accommodate cancelled or last-minute shifts, without much complaint or hassle. The office staff we deal with on a day-to-day basis bend over backwards to cover whatever we throw at them, nothing is ever an effort or issue for the guys to deal with and to be fair they usually deal with a lot of last minute requests from our side most weeks. We have a great relationship with the guys which has been built up over several years and long may it continue. Keep up the good work
