Clients & Testimonials


Richard Jackson


PBH Surveys have provided a consistently professional service whilst working for us on a number of high profile and varied projects. Their input has ranged from small bridge topographical surveys to large scale projects. Planning and management of the surveys has been excellent and communication has been maintained throughout the project to ensure that we have been kept fully informed of the status of the works. The deliverables received to date have all been of a very high quality which is essential for our design process. I can highly recommend PBH Surveys.

Rob Brotherton

Senior Permanent Way Design Engineer

PBH have been undertaking our initial Topo and DVS surveys for around 3 years. We find the quality of their deliverables to be significantly better than that of their competitors as their surveyors are all experienced rail surveyors, this is evident from the level of detail provided.

Gary Costello

Programme Manager – Works Delivery, Network Rail

PBH haven’t disappointed with this; delivering a great service to Network Rail at Christmas and last weekend at Low Flats. During both projects I have been on site and witnessed the difference that you make and your specific skill set brings to the project.
