Rail & Signalling fast facts

Wealth of experience

​At Kier we have over 70 years of experience delivering everything from major rail projects to the installation of power systems and signaling design and build. We are involved in both HS2 and Crossrail and bring a wide range of skills to these and all our projects, from civils work to tunneling and large earth works. For HS2 we are responsible for all facets of the project, from design through to completion.

The Kier Rail team carry out multidisciplinary rail projects across the UK. Working with us, you will benefit from a range of inhouse capabilities, including design, Early Contractor Involvement, Budget Costing, Programme Management and Project delivery. We are passionate about our values of being collaborative, forward thinking and enthusiastic. This approach builds strong relationships with our customers, helping them deliver projects from GRIP 1 stage (output definition) through to GRIP 8 stage (project close out).

Joint ventures

Many of our projects, HS2 included, are run as joint ventures and we are very experienced in working with two or three joint venture partners on projects. Experience has taught us that the way to get the best from a project is to come in as early as possible so we can work closely and collaborate with clients and partners right from the start. We also have the benefit of being part of a larger group with many other sectors to tap into and learn from.

It’s all about our people

Whatever we are working on, the greatest asset we bring is our people; their experience in delivering highly technical projects on different types of contract in many different locations. With specialist teams for signaling and power Kier has the expertise to offer clients the certainty of cost and certainty of delivery, however big or small a project. Clients also want to see us moving things forward in terms of innovation, safety, digitisation and making as much use of BIM as possible. From delivering HS2 to extending power systems to allow stations to cater for longer trains we’re helping move rail forward.
