TES Highlights of 2018
TES has had an excellent year in 2018 supporting the Crossrail project delivering Isolations & Worksite Management, continuing to deliver Possession Management across the Anglia route, LNW and West-Mids and Chiltern routes, undertaking Isolations and OLE construction, supplying core Permanent Way teams to Colas as part of the Southern Alliance Plain Line and S&C contracts and our Projects team continues to deliver a full range of bespoke track work for a wide range of clients.
The TES Project team are excited to be entering their 10th Anniversary this year. They will continue to deliver a range of bespoke packages of work across the UK building on their highly valued reputation in the Rail Industry. A highlight for 2018 was the Southend central project - a complete track renewal including S&C to improve the service into London – from contract award to completion, this project was delivered on time and to budget in an impressive 2 months.
Our Permanent Way team are rated as the BEST Contractor for safety and quality, and our main client is thoroughly impressed with the work TES provide – we hope to expand the team in 2019 and build on the relationships with our clients.
Over Christmas our Anglia Possession Management team successfully delivered an enormous possession spanning 2 weeks without any incidents or over runs, highlighting the safe working ethic that TES is proud to represent. TES continue to work closely with NWR throughout the UK and look forward to continuing to deliver a high-quality service across our Possession Management framework.
TES has invested heavily in technological solutions providing efficiencies, for example our bespoke Close Call and Audit & Assurance Apps. This investment allows the business to be highly competitive, removing waste, duplication and supports our teams to maintain our enviable safety record.
We are the first contractor in the UK Rail industry to fully adopt the move to the electronic Rule Book app, developed by the RSSB. Allowing our safety critical teams to have the information they need at the touch of a button.
Encouraging community volunteering during 2018, TES supported a range of activities from Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM) based activities in local schools, environmental initiatives to keep our local beaches free of rubbish and supporting the Samaritans ‘Small Talk Saves Lives’ campaign.
TES participated in several charity events in 2018, raising £1,000’s for our chosen charities, which included Each Anglia Children’s Hospice (EACH), MIND supporting mental health, MacMillan Cancer research and Vision aid overseas.
In November, TES were honoured to be in the presence of ex-service men and women and reserves to hold a 2-minute silence to mark 100 years since the end of World War 1. This was followed by a rendition of the Last Post, which was performed faultlessly by one of the reserves.
We are excited for the opportunities TES will be involved in in the coming year!
