Workplace management

Delivering great workplaces for our people

Our mission is to support everyone at Network Rail with the workplace and training facilities to ensure they have the best day at work, every single day.

To achieve this, we're providing 4.5 million square feet of safe and high quality work environments for our 11,000 Network Rail office-based staff.


Our National Centre, Quadrant:MK, in Milton Keynes has united 3,000 staff under one roof and enabled a shift towards a more agile working environment. The move has created savings of around £17 million per year.

This project has signalled the start of a journey to make all our workspaces efficient, effective and engaging.

We're committed to ensuring value for money and providing spaces which are sustainable for the future. We aim to reduce the cost of our workplace accommodation by 22 per cent by 2019, and are embedding sustainability targets into all our activities.

The Quadrant:MK and our new Anglia route offices at Stratford are both rated as BREEAM Excellent buildings, placing Network Rail within a respected class of organisations achieving best practice in building design, construction and operation.
