London Bridge Station & Civils – Engineering Management Plan
Owing to the size, complexity and number of projects, it was recognised that the Thameslink Programme’s (TLP’s) engineering activities could not be managed solely through the application of Network Rail Corporate Standards and GRIP.
To impose a degree of consistency and control over engineering activities, Thameslink Programme developed and implemented a bespoke Integrated Management System (IMS).
The IMS manual (Document no. N000-NRT-MAN-MD-000001) provided a high-level overview of the Integrated Management System. It covered the intent, scope, structure and organisation of the management system.
Where engineering processes and procedures relied on input from others, these interfaces and activities were shown.
Compliance to the documents contained in the IMS was mandatory. As such, all employees, irrespective of their position, had a duty to take all reasonable measures to comply with those IMS requirements that were applicable to their activities.
The Designated Project Engineers (DPEs) documented any deviation from the IMS, for agreement with the Departmental Engineering Manager (DEM) and approval by the Thameslink Programme ‘Standard Owner’.
The Engineering Management Plan applies to all projects delivered by the London Bridge Station & Civils (LBS&C) and sets out the management processes and procedures which are to be followed during the GRIP life-cycle of the LBS&C projects. For clarity these are:
- London Bridge Station Regeneration (LBSR)
- London Dungeons Retail
- Structure Strengthening Project (SSP)
- Bermondsey Dive-under (BDU
- Borough Viaduct (BV)
