We are honoured to have improved the travel experience for rail users across the UK, helping deliver major infrastructure improvements at lineside sites, maintenance depots and MDU’s, as well as some of the country’s busiest stations.
For any project we undertake our aim is always the same – to deliver agreed programme critical paths via a service of unrivalled quality, within budget and on time – whether under possession or with restrictions in place – whilst keeping the process as simple as possible for you.
Our in-house expertise covers all aspects of feasibility studies, surveys, design, installation, handback as well as aftercare and maintenance. Hosting every specialism internally allows us to provide full control and direction on projects, alleviating the hassle of you having to manage multiple sub-contractors, ensuring no scope gaps to be navigated between trades.
Behind the ProGen name stands our team – a tightknit force who are expertly trained, talented and driven. Our full senior unit originate from trade backgrounds and hold the true understanding of how projects should be orchestrated and safely implemented. This, combined with the solid expertise attained between us over the past decade of operation, allows us to offer you insightful and unique ways of approaching any project we undertake.
We take great satisfaction in developing professional, reassuring relationships with our clients and partners as a result of this.
The quality and safety of our rail works:
All ProGen engineers have completed time-served apprenticeships as an absolute minimum. To ensure they operate with pinnacle competency we also put them through additional industry training specific to their niche, and regular refreshment learning under our comprehensive CPD initiative.
Project aspects are assigned and resourced individually at ProGen (Pre-Construction Director, Rail Director, Works Planner/Scheduler, Contractors Engineering Manager, Contractors Responsible Engineer (design), Contractors Responsible Engineer (construction) and Project Management Resource), ensuring you have our absolute best orchestrating your works.
We ensure each job is coordinated with safety at the forefront of our minds – ProGen is RISQS accredited, with all of our engineers PTS trained and SENTINAL card holders.
We also have an in-house appointed Network Rail Project Engineer under NR/L2/RSE/02009 to provide Engineering Assurance in-line with the requirements of NR/L2/RSE/02009 and the deliverable requirements of NR/L2/CIV/003 and NR/L2/ELP/27311. We manage engineering works in compliance with NR/L2/RSE/02009 to ensure all process, document stages, checks, safety, and compliance are all in place as to not introduce Network Rail to any risk.
Our works follow our Project Management Plan (PMP), which follows the basic strategic principles outlined in NR/L2/P3M/220. Delivering projects through the PACE lifecycle (ES1 – 8) and GRIP stage 1-8. We also adopt the values of HETI (Headwinds, Efficiencies, Tailwind, and In-efficiency) with Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to report, manage and identify to the stakeholders and the sponsor on project performance and risk.
Each stage of our works also comply to the Construction (Design and Management) (CDM) Regulations 2015 and NR/L2/OHS/0047 and are strictly controlled by our in-house HSQE department.
Our quality management system meets the requirements of the standard BS EN ISO 9001:2015 and ensures that we minimise quality non-conformities. Monitoring our compliance to this standard allows us to continually improve our performance as a business.
To ensure our quality and maintain an exceptionally high standard of installation our on-site PM and CRE-C coordinate regular checks and testing in-line with the Inspection and Test Plan. All data is recorded and documented on ProGen’s verification of inspection check sheets, which, as well as evidence of compliance – whereby all systems are stringently tested, commissioned and proven – form part of our pre-requisite to the handback procedure.

Aspects we cover (but not limited to):
We carry out all aspects of MEPH work at depots. This could be minor, consisting of individual luminaire replacements or socket replacements, to major schemes consisting of full new lighting upgrades or complete depot rewires.
We can also assist you with any maintenance requirements on any current infrastructure or periodic testing of existing equipment.
Our dedicated team will support your needs throughout, ensuring that work is planned to cause minimal disruption to the depot’s 24/7 operations, with our on-site team in place daily to anticipate, react and resource any changes.
We take pride in producing a quality, sustainable and inclusive for all base for your maintenance and support staff. Resulting in an area that you can be proud of and one they enjoy spending time in.
Whether an existing or new-build MDU, we work with you in the remit development and sponsor requirements, and then through each stage of works, to provide you with consistent knowledge and expertise. We advise on value engineering opportunities and support your budget and requirements to ensure you are getting the best value for money.
Our high-quality station works will transform any outdated, dimly lit, non-compliant space, platform, or waiting area into an inviting and compliant space, giving passengers the safety and reassurance that they deserve while using your facilities.
We also carry out MEPH services to back-of-house areas, whether this be switch and server rooms or providing rail staff and employees safe, comforting work areas – including ticket offices, staff rooms, toilets, and welfare facilities.
Stations present passengers with a clear image of the rail and franchise brand. It is of the utmost importance to us that the works we undertake within stations mirrors these exceptionally high quality, aesthetic and safety standards – retaining both the franchise and ProGen’s credibility.
We understand the significance of these buildings which often house the critical infrastructure for the day-to-day running of the operational railway, and the services needed to keep these operative.
Our capability to anticipate, react and resource provides you with the assurance that whether services are to be upgraded, removed or replaced – as part of planned or unplanned works – we can assist you, no matter how big or small the requirement.
We are fully equipped in-house to undertake MEPH surveys and reports. All surveys are produced and delivered in a report format to summarise the findings, and flag any high risks for immediate action.
Some of the survey services we offer include:
Electrical load assessment
Electrical load monitoring
Mechanical load assessment
Tag and trace surveys
Lux level / lighting surveys
Test and inspection
