Matt Finch Production Manager - Surveys South Rail Systems Alliance / Colas Rail Ltd

On behalf of everyone at the Pro Rail Services, I would like to thank SEP Rail Services for all for the effort, professionalism and safety conscious demonstrated during the tight schedule of work. Alongside our own staff, the SEP staff worked efficiently and safe to ensure a successful deployment, thank you to all involved.

Steve Pinkney Permanent Way Director Pro Rail Services

Having worked with SEP Rail for a number of months now, I honestly couldn’t be happier with the work they’ve carried out. Their approach and attitude have been second to none with no request being too much trouble. They have been an asset to what is a high profile and high pressure project and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Arwyn Rogers Construction Manager Amey, Great Western Electrification Programme

SEP Rail Services have been working alongside Colas Rail for over six months, carrying out S&C and plain line topo surveys as part of our CP6 Southern Alliance works. At times they’ve had up to ten teams out on track at once. I’ve worked with Rikki (their Managing Director) very successfully for a number of years now and this time is no exception. Both he and his team have been a pleasure to work with. We will certainly be using their services again in the future.

Luke Brown Operations Manager S&C South Alliance / Colas Rail

Rikki (SEP Rail MD) is a delivery machine. He was the driving force behind Colas Rails Survey team expansion growing a relatively small part of the business in to a circa £5m turnover business unit. I believe Rikki had the ability to grow the delivery capability of his team because he is respected by the people that he has worked with and they are happy to join him wherever he is. He is delivery focused and will do his upmost not to let his customers down.

David Vamplew Project Manager High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd

Osborne worked with SEP Rail over the last 7 months on a number of GIs, topographical surveys, flood risk assessments, UTX capacity checks and our engagement so far couldn’t have been better!

Rikki, Ellie and the overall SEP team have been not only exceptional professionals, but also great and trusted communicators who work always to the highest Standard. Amongst other things, SEP have provided throughout this involvement great and to the point reporting, which enable better visibility and control at the project level, extremely quick turnaround on deliverables, always ahead of the programme, as well as short mobilisation periods on every request with short notice to satisfy project requirements.

Keep the good work SEP Team and it is our pleasure working with you.

Christos Zantis Development Manager Osborne

Thank you, and great work on this, SEP team. It's been reassuring knowing you've been in place and monitoring this throughout.

Arran Crawford Route Engineer (Geotechnical), EC and N&E Network Rail

SEP Rail Services have worked for QTS on a number of occasions in the LNW CAM framework and the Western Region, carrying out emergency track monitoring and topographical surveys.

We have been consistently impressed with their reaction times to emergency situations and to the standard that the work is carried out to. We would feel confident entrusting them again with work on our behalf in the future.

Lisa McGhee Marketing Manager QTS Group

Tom and the team were absolutely stars. I said "this is what I need" and 5 minutes later they deliver. We face a problem, they huddle, and solved. Your teams are without a doubt the best I have worked with in UK and Ireland and I find it hard to find a team better in the 42 countries I have worked in. James you guys have gold in your teams. Gold.

Dean Callaway Project Manager WSP

For some time now, SEP Rail Services have been instrumental in supporting City Surveys on a wide variety of survey projects. They have provided a range of services including topographical surveys, track monitoring and ground investigation and have performed admirably throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Richard Furlong Chairman The City Surveys Group

On behalf of Rail Skills Ltd, I would like to say what a pleasure it has been delivering training and assessments to your workforce. All delegates that have attended our events have been courteous, enthusiastic to learn and fully engaged, keen to develop their roles within the rail industry. SEP has the potential to deliver the workforce that today’s rail industry is looking for.

James Gibney Director Rail Skills

Just wanted to say we were very pleased with your de-veg team this week at Castlethorpe. As this is a project alpha scheme we weren’t able to undertake a site walkout of all the vegetation so it was a bit of an unknown… your team showed a great attitude on site to get the works completed on time where others may have not. Will definitely be looking to use them again. Please pass on my thanks to the lads.

Carl Matthias Assistant Project Manager J. Murphy & Sons
