2017 is well underway and already everyone at SVM is busier than ever.  The new year has seen the arrival of many new projects at our door and we have never been one to turn anybody away!


Among a healthy influx of new work this month has been a design involving shore supplies in the South of England, large scale railway design works in the midlands and new E&P design for a scheme in the Scottish borders.  As well as these extensive new works, we have also been asked to return to some well-known sites at which we have previously delivered successful projects.  These include further design at Edinburgh Waverley station – this time involving the concourse lighting, new design for the platforms at Dundee Station and additional works around one of Scotland’s main rail depots.  Still in the pipeline for the moment are works based around renewal of battery chargers for the railways and on a slightly different (train) track, we have also started some new CAD 3D modelling at schools across Argyll and Bute and commenced works for an EPC in a theatre location.


Edinburgh Waverley is a busy place this month with various small scale non-complex designs around the station, works at the signalling centre and the ongoing EGIP project with which we are involved in various facets with different clients.  All of these are now reaching the final furlong while, nearby, ECML junction supply works have all reached initial submission stage.  Further North the HEP project is making good headway, as are works involving Aberdeen and Inverness depots.  Design works are still progressing at Dundee Station, Partick Interchange and a Glasgow Stabling shed while Motherwell North Signalling Renewals, Slateford Depot and Polmadie and Rutherglen Renewals remain on the radar.  In the London area we are still working on design for recently surveyed railway sites, while, not too far away, we are awaiting the commencement of a lighting renewals project and, closer to home, design of multiple station car parks.  As always we continue to provide design advice across a range of small scale projects including LED lighting, earthing and bonding and external lighting at various Railway locations.  Non railway projects this month include electrical works in Glasgow’s West End, provision of design advice for one of the larger football stadiums, CAD 3D modelling services for various schools and works in Carlisle relating to recent flood damage.


2017 is going to be a big year and, if you feel like you want to be part of it – and you are an experienced mechanical or electrical engineer with experience in a consultancy or railway setting – please send your CV and covering letter to elise.mclean@svm-glasgow.co.uk.  It’s a great opportunity to work on exciting projects with an excellent team – we look forward to hearing from you!
