A track record for delivery

Racon is a commercially focused rail engineering consultancy, not simply a rail engineering consultancy.

This important distinction means we never get lost in the technical details at the expense of an overarching clarity of purpose. We can help you work out a path to progress, a strong business case, then bring the project to fruition successfully.


What matters most

Our strategic, technical and commercial thinking will always present you with clear recommendations, accurately written up.

Engineering and Technical Support

Engineering and Technical Support

Sometimes technical quality can be difficult to decipher, or not aligned to your needs. Other times elements are made to sound complicated to justify the cost. Or, so full of caveats and exclusions all risk lies with you.

We are ever mindful our role is to find you answers. We bring you the best people for the job and translate their contribution into the outputs you need. Our support covers areas such as, lifecycle cost modelling, feasibility studies, reliability improvement, performance analysis, and fleet maintenance optimisation.

Commercial Support

Commercial Support

When you’re investing in a fleet of trains, procuring a new railway system or attempting to gain entry to the UK market, detailed knowledge is crucial for guiding decision-making.

The Racon team have considerable experience of the cross-industry commercial and contractual framework. It’s probably fair to say we know the model inside out. Want to know what the influencing factors are? Where cost savings can be made? Or how to apply some competitive pressure? The team will bring you a strong commercial focus to every project alongside a genuine desire to find the best solution.

Project Management

Project Management

Our expertise covers both Commercial Project Management and Engineering Project Management. Clients use us to lead and support technical experts with strong project management. Other times our remit extends to a full multi-disciplinary engagement such as our work with SPT on the Glasgow Subway system. This project required oversight on procurement of new subway trains, new signalling, new telecoms and civil engineering. Expect strong working relationships and 100% total commitment to the project whether it spans five weeks or five years.
