RISQS Exemplary Accreditation

We have recently achieved RISQS accreditation by successfully completing their application and passing an audit and achieving an exemplary pass level.


We are pleased to announce that we have successfully passed our Achilles RISQS Audit with an exemplary record.

The initial assessment involved us demonstrating to the auditor that we are able to work to the strict standards which would be expected if we undertook railway projects. We achieved this successfully by proving that Downwell has the right documentation, procedures and processes in place.

RISQS (Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme) is the UK rail industry’s registration and pre-qualification scheme. It is a single entry point for organisations to supply products and services to more than 110 buying organisations from the rail industry, including Network Rail.

Our successful RISQS audit is great news for our business and means that we can now proceed with a number of rail contract projects that we are currently tendering for.

Should you wish to contact us regarding what rail services we can provide please send us an enquiry email at info@downwell.co.uk

"Our SHEQ Manager Del Wyer has spent months during the application and prior to the audit making sure that we met all of the requirements for achieving the accreditation. We would like to personally thank Del for all of his hard work for making sure our procedures were at the highest standard"

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement - Wednesday 25th March

The Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening signalled the introduction of more stringent restrictions on us all and has specifically indicated that members of the public should only leave their home for very limited purposes. The message indicates that we should travel to and from work, only where this is absolutely necessary.

The management of the Downwell Group of companies which includes: Downwell Demolition, Inner City Environmental and Inner City Scaffolding has very carefully considered both the meaning and the spirit of the Prime Minister’s statement and whilst there has been some clarification from government subsequently that building sites could continue to operate, we came to the very clear decision yesterday that it was necessary for us, as a responsible contractor, to safely and securely close down our operational sites as soon as reasonably possible. Doing so will assist in maintaining the wellbeing of our customers, employees, sub-contractors, suppliers and the wider communities within which we build.

All sites have been closed down in a safe and secure manner and will remain closed until further notice.

We would like to take this opportunity of thanking all the key workers on the frontline who are continiung working for the good of us all.
