Interfacing schemes and tight programmes.
Network Rail (NR) appointed Egis to support the delivery of its capital delivery team with a wide range of complex, multi-discipline enhancements and renewals of CP5 and CP6 projects. One such project was the Feltham Station enhancement programme.
Feltham Station required the provision of project management and construction management services from GRIP 5 (Detailed Design) to GRIP 8 (Close Out).
The project involved the delivery of a series of modifications, including the installation of a new twin-purpose cycle and pedestrian bridge, new track, new 3rd rail, new signalling, two 40m platform extensions with associated lighting, telecoms and gauging and a new station entrance, complete with gatelines. It also required the closure of an existing level crossing and the demolition of two bridges.
The challenges faced by Egis on this project resulted from the complexities inherent to the scope of works, compounded by numerous interfacing schemes and tight programmes requiring cross-project strategic problem solving and clear articulation of project status to key stakeholders. Egis achieved this through a series of interface workshops and the production of a cross-project swimlane programme.
On this project, Egis demonstrated its ability to successfully manage key stakeholders and balance conflicting challenges to deliver on time and on budget.
