Case study - Simon Addyman, London Underground Limited
Project professional of the year: 2013
The £563m Bank Station Capacity Upgrade (BSCU) forms part of London Underground Limited’s (LUL) Station Capacity Upgrade Programme (SCUP). It will result in increased capacity, reduced journey times, step-free routes to the Northern Line and Docklands Light Railway, and compliant emergency fire and evacuation protection measures by 2021.
The management of the project was made more complex through the procurement approach. The project pioneered a novel procurement approach- Innovative Contractor Engagement (ICE)- developed in response to lessons learnt from the procurement of other projects and used it to procure the main design and build contract. ICE seeks to maximise market value by driving innovation through the supply chain. In this case, ICE aimed to achieve an additional 15% in value.
