VolkerFitzpatrick is a long established and well respected depot design and build constructor, with over 20 years of experience, across the whole of the UK.

As a leading constructor of rail depots, our highly qualified and professional teams bring a wealth of specialist experience in the design and construction of new depots, and relocating or upgrading existing facilities to meet the needs of the end user.


We have extensive experience of managing the unique interfaces and programming considerations of designing, constructing and commissioning these facilities on live operational sites.

Depot capabilities

We work with the highest calibre design houses, who each have a wealth of knowledge and experience to develop a client’s initial concept through to a final solution, that will exceed their expectations. Due to our closely forged relationships with these designers, we have the flexibility to design innovative solutions within any environment.

We work closely with our clients and engage as early as possible to ensure we fully understand, capture and manage their requirements, optimising the design solution for their needs. This can often result in value engineering, commercially benefiting our clients.

  • New builds
  • Refurbishments
  • Upgrades
  • Modifications

Depot modifications

We understand that operational depots cannot close during construction works, so we work with our clients to install modifications, to ensure little or no impact on a depot’s daily activities.

Modifications may range from the installation of a bogie drop in an existing building, to a full CET and fuelling facility on new or existing sidings. Whatever the requirement, we develop a robust plan with our clients, stakeholders and designers, ensuring minimal disruption.
