In this interview, Kevin Ling, National Telecomms Asset and Performance Manager for Network Rail explains how everything from enabling works through to the design and integration of the systems that passengers would need was managed during the London Bridge project.
Design Integration Case Studies
Reviewing the key challenges, programme of works, methodology and logistics associated with installation of the Vierendeel truss at London Bridge station.
This case study, from design and wayfinding contractor Maynard Design, explains how wayfinding solutions were adapted to keep passengers moving around the station as routes changed on a regular basis during the project’s construction phases.
Key lessons from what went well on the project including: integrated planning and relationship management, management of third party relationships, integrated working, change management, Value Engineering and scheme handback and close-out. The case study also looks at what could have been improved, including contract content, contract administration and rework/redesign costs, and proposes recommendations for future schemes.
Lessons learned from challenges encountered during the operation of previous station configurations resulted in adoption of the successful ‘Dog Leg’ pedestrian flow plan in August 2016
