At Lowery we have a reputation for quality and service that goes back over 70 years, enabling us to offer our customers proven experience and knowledge. We operate as a Principal Contractor, undertaking Signalling, Telecoms, High Voltage, DC, Low Voltage electrical installations and civil engineering works of all types whilst continually responding to market changes and developments. Working mainly in the Rail and Power sectors, our success lies in the quality of our staff, our operational procedures and our total commitment to the Health & Safety of our employees and the public, along with a healthy respect for the environment in which we work.
Lowery Ltd have undertaken multiple Short Circuit Testing (SCT) on the Track Feeder Switch (TFS) Project sites over a number of weekend possessions. This has been undertaken in line with the company COVID-19 requirements/process with the team. Given the main lines on which the testing was applicable the potential impact on the operational railway was a high risk factor successfully managed and mitigated by the Lowery Project Team. It goes without saying that Network Rail Route, needed to ensure service was maintained for the essential working requirements.

“ Dear all A massive thank you to you and your teams for the huge amount of work which has been put in over the last few days as we have worked around the clock to recover the 11kV cable fire at South Hampstead. The complexity of this repair should not be underestimated. It has been managed with a great level of rigour and everyone’s commitment in delivering the plan to hand the railway back for our customers this morning has been excellent. A great team effort. Please pass on my thanks to your teams. Thanks again. Mark ”

Warren Eyres - Project Manager , Infrastructure Projects South East - Network Rail
“ I would like to formally acknowledge the extraordinary effort that your team and contractors have put in over the last 9 days and nights, to ensure that we successfully achieved handback of the National Grid 33kV yard today It is tribute to the BAM’s behaviours and collaboration with their contractors, client and stakeholders, that you managed to pull together the required design, procurement and execution in such a short period, successfully and safely. This is still only one step towards to overall success and completion of the project, however it is still a step worthy of congratulations. Many Thanks ”
Network Rail, Wessex
“ The saying ‘It’s people that deliver projects’ really is incredibly appropriate to describe what we have witnessed over the past six months, with the efforts and contributions of so many people being critical to the success of this project. I’m convinced this achievement wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment of the individuals involved, and it’s been both a pleasure and a privilege to work alongside you all in pursuit of this challenging target. To beat the milestone date really is an outstanding achievement given the circumstances, and testimony to everyone’s hard work and professionalism to have done so in such a convincing manner. On behalf of Network Rail, please pass my very sincere thanks on to everyone involved. ”
“ Over the last 60 hours 180 metres of King Post Wall piles were installed and 6 H piles to support the Rotherhithe Switch Rooms. This was undertaken despite getting access to the tracks some 2.5 hours late, having two engineering trains passing through leading to a further 3 hours and ten minutes loss, numerous technical issues with the machine and 17 piles refusing. All this was carried out without an accident or incident, and without a noise complaint. I would like to thank you for all your efforts during the event and all preparation prior to it. ”
