From platforms to whole stations and local networks to projects of national significance, Spencer have the combined expertise in civil, electrical, OHLE, track and rail engineering to handle the demands of any project from design to delivery. Our industry-leading in-house design team combine with our planning team to coordinate the whole package of works, ensuring even the most stringent possession and cost requirements are met through value engineering and daring new solutions to even the trickiest engineering problems.

Collaboration is one of our biggest strengths, and we pride ourselves on great relationships with stakeholders and the engineering disciplines we bring to the table. From the design and planning phase all the way through to the construction and commissioning, all the parties involved input into the process to ensure the needs of each element in the project are fulfilled. Our previous experience gives us the knowledge to drive efficiencies and anticipate problems and work with the supply chain so that they can be solved with the minimum of delay.
