Lundy Projects, established in 1976, were initially engaged in providing turnkey design, fabrication and construction services to the process and chemical industry. Over recent years this experience and service has been integrated into our expanding rail division.
The Lundy Projects approach in all sections of our business has been the provision of all main design disciplines using in-house resources supported by our modern fabrication works and highly skilled construction crews-creating a 'one stop shop'.
This structure promotes an environment that is flexible to change, allows initiative and ensures 'ownership' of projects. In many cases this has been the key factor in the successful completion of projects, often within difficult cost and time constraints.
In 2007, Lundy were awarded a Principal Contractors License enabling us to undertake all types of projects directly for Network Rail.
