About SEP Rail Services

About Us

A unique pre-construction services company, we work with contractors, consultants, construction firms and more, measuring, modelling and engineering the nation’s railways.

Working hand in hand with our clients and partners, we’ve built our reputation upon the quality, reliability and flexibility of our service, developing innovative solutions to complex problems whilst making tomorrow’s railway a better place. With over 80% of our work based upon repeat business, we must be doing something right…

Part of the SEP group, we’ve been adding value to our clients’ projects for over 30 years. Indeed, as one of the UK’s fastest growing railway surveying firms, each year we deliver yet more projects for rail clients throughout the country.

What do we do?

Far from being your run-of-the-mill surveying company, we support our clients throughout the lifetime of their projects, providing the support and information they need to make the right decisions.

A genuinely diverse organisation, we offer a fully integrated, turnkey solution to our clients’ problems, adding value at each and every stage of the operation. In doing so, we help deliver the safe, compliant and timely outcome that they would naturally expect. More often than not, however, we also save them both time and money in the process, exposing efficiencies they didn’t even know were possible.

People and technology

A forward thinking and dynamic organisation, we know only too well that both people and technology are at the heart of everything we do. It’s no surprise, therefore, that we’re consistently investing in both…

Our in-house training programs help our team to achieve their goals, remaining passionate and at the top of their game. At the same time, with regular upgrades to our survey equipment and software, we remain at the forefront of railway surveying, delivering our clients’ data faster, more cost-effectively and in higher resolution than ever before.
