Delivering excellence in engineering
Engineering specialist, Pod-Trak, delivering award-winning, multidisciplinary infrastructure services in the UK and Ireland.
Pod-Trak is a highly-talented engineering specialist, carrying out multi-discipline works within the railways, airports and power sectors.
Alongside delivering a large portfolio of work right across the UK in 2019, the team has been working hard to capitalise on the record levels of rail work planned over the next five years during Control Period 6.
A new office has been opened in Bristol to support the growth in the Southwest and South Wales, whilst there’s been an investment in training for all the staff and new plant to support the projects.
It’s the latest chapter for a company which is committed to engineering excellence, specialising in railway electrification, civil engineering and communication systems.
Pod-Trak is helping to keep the UK moving, with recent projects delivered on the P-Way and OLE scope at Barking Riverside and Heathrow Airport and work on the Trafford Line for Manchester Metrolink; three major rail projects of many recently delivered by this impressive company.
How the story began
It’s a journey which began in 2007 from humble beginnings. Fast-forward 12 years and the company now employs 300 people, has offices in London, Manchester, Bristol and Doncaster and works throughout the UK and Ireland focusing on infrastructure projects, well established within the railway, airports and power sectors.
Today the company turns over in excess of £40 million.
A key to the success is the company’s ability to build strong, long-lasting partnerships with its clients, producing an efficient, safe and quality product throughout the project cycle. The highly skilled teams have the knowledge to support the broad spectrum of transport networks keeping passengers and freight on the move.
Pod-Trak is committed to outstanding performance, basing all its work to a set of core values, which are adopted and promoted across the company.
It underpins the way in which they conduct business, interact with stakeholders and operate as individuals or teams within the organisation.
The values are:
- Excellence – Be exceptional in everything they do. Safely delivering quality results, first time.
- Trust – Open and transparent. They earn and instil trust by being honest and accountable at all levels.
- Collaboration – Achieving more together. Allowing them to integrate their expertise and know-how for efficient project delivery.
- Innovation – Encourage a bold and entrepreneurial attitude to work. Be challenging in their approach by thinking outside the box.
- Integrity – Be moral and upstanding. Build strong relationships by respecting personal and business values.
Thinking outside the box
Safety is at the heart of everything within Pod-Trak – making sure staff are well trained and looking for innovative ways to improve procedures and working conditions. Making sure everyone arrives home safely every day is the company’s number one priority.
This includes ‘The Pod’ app, which continues to be developed and expanded – this year seeing the launch of two more mini apps covering Take 5 and Site Inspections.
The aim is to make sites safer by raising close calls – giving staff the opportunity to report close and good calls.
The close call app simplifies and streamlines the reporting process into one simple form on screen. Staff can fill in basic details and input a description of the good call, incident or hazard, with the option to add a photo. Once submitted, the report is sent to a central point and the HSQE team is notified.
It shows the company’s commitment to report unsafe situations, actions and behaviours which have the potential to cause harm, which is key to reducing and eliminating accidents at work.
The Pod-Trak team work to the principles of ISO44001, the nationally recognised collaborative working standard. This is reflected in the very good feedback that the company receives for its project planning and delivery and is the reason that so many companies are making Pod-Trak their supply chain partner of choice. This is a business that is going places and has a strong reputation for consistently delivering safely and delivering incredibly well.
