The Project & Programme Management learning legacy shares the policies, processes and procedures used successfully on Thameslink Programme for possible use or modification by future projects and programmes. This section focuses on project initiation and development.

Project Initiation and Development Case Studies

Requirements Management: London Bridge Station

This case study looks at scope hierarchy and assurance reporting during the LBSR project. It also shares requirements management best practice, lessons learned and key recommendations for future infrastructure projects.

Project Systems: London Bridge Station

How using an integrated project delivery platform can provide a single source of truth, to aid project delivery and increase efficiency

Wayfinding: 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.

Sub-Contractor Technical Interface Review (STIR): London Bridge Station

A three-stage process to ensure physical interfaces were allocated, coordinated and completed correctly first time on site by subcontractors during the London Bridge Station Redevelopment project.

Lessons Learned Summary: Bermondsey Dive Under

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.

Design & Execution Strategy: London Bridge Station

Reviewing the design and execution strategy including: Concourse & Bridges, Canopies & Platforms, Facades, Quadripartite Arcade and Arches.

Delivery & Execution Strategy: Key Output 2

How collaboration and incentivisation were crucial to successful delivery of Key Output 2, including the re-signalling, track remodelling and construction of London Bridge station, construction of the Bermondsey Dive Under to the east and Borough Viaduct to the west.
