The company

Originally founded in 2006 by Brian Richards and based in Ashford, Kent BRSSOS offers a comprehensive range of services to the railway industry specialising in Track Trolley/Versine surveys, Track Monitoring, Topographic/Railway Surveys and also carry out general topographic surveys & control station installations.

As an independent company we are committed to providing our clients with the highest level of service at all times and our team comprising of highly experienced personnel who between them have over 30 years engineering surveying experience and 10 years working on a variety of railway surveying projects both in the UK and Europe are fully focused on our clients needs and timescales. Our commitment is also reflected in the equipment used. We have invested heavily in the most up to date trolley surveying equipment in particular Amberg FX300 Track Trolley, with laser profiler, in conjunction with Leica TPS1200 and 1100 Total Stations, and also Leica GNSS GPS system for co-ordination of the control stations.

All our staff hold current PTS certificates as well as Docklands Light Railway PICOW certificates and BRSSOS is a Link UP registered company.

We believe in offering a flexible service that is focused on our client’s needs and timescales. At BRSSOS we are able to offer quick response times to survey requests and understand the need for speedy but accurate results, at all times working closely with our client’s to produce the exact information they require. BRSSOS cares that our clients are entirely happy with the results and clients can actually talk to the surveyor working on the project at anytime through out its duration which we believe is very important.

At BRSSOS we develop solutions for all survey requirements and enjoy designing bespoke projects. We work closely with many small specialised companies and manufacturers, and can produce a method, or equipment to fulfil the required work, we can even have unique pieces of equipment including Track Monitoring Targets manufactured. We also provide a survey “one stop shop” from traversing control networks, existing ground surveys, CAD drawing production, spreadsheets, section & volume data. This includes roads, and bulk earthworks amongst many others.

We are proud to work with a number of the leading rail organisations and have listed some of the projects that BRSSOS has been involved in on our clients page.
