London Underground - Systems Renewal at Barbican Station
Disciplines: Civil / Structural, Electrical, Mechanical, Signalling, C&I, Drainage, Communications, Premises
SRC Infrastructure supported the Systems Programme within the London Underground Renewals Portfolio through a review of the Barbican Refurbishment Project. The Barbican Refurbishment Project is a multidisciplinary scheme (Fire, Comms, Civils, Premises, Mechanical & Electrical). It addresses asset obsolescence, asset safety, legal compliance & LU compliance.
The engineering & design deliverables did not follow TfL’s Pathway, resulting in misalignment with the PRS.
The original Scope of Works was not complete or baselined. This was because the interfaces with other programmes (including Crossrail and 4LM) had not been formally defined and agreed.
The design activities were not aligned with an accepted D&B Procurement Strategy.
The Project was under resourced, which was putting the programme at risk.
That the project should separate out independent and enabling works packages. This would ensure that each can meet the Stage Gate 2/3 milestones, and bring forward the start on site date for these activities, without compromising time, cost, quality or safety.
