Bank Station Capacity Upgrade

London Underground

Bank Station Capacity Upgrade

Bank underground station serves 96,000 passengers during the peak hours and additional capacity needs to be created to meet future demand.

The client has opted to utilise the Innovative Contractor Engagement (ICE) model of procurement for this station upgrade, and required multi-disciplinary consultancy support to complete the tender process and award the construction contract.

CPC Role

CPC was appointed to provide project management support to progress this scheme through feasibility to RIBA Stage D.  We developed the programme, implemented project governance and secured approval to proceed with tendering the main construction contract.  The project would include new platforms, tunnels, escalators, lifts and a new ticket hall.

Our consultants undertook scoping and management of the tendering process and provided expertise in the overall tender evaluation – a challenging task as the four tender responses were based on project requirements and business case rather than concept or client design.

CPC’s collaborative approach ensured that specialist consultancy services were outcome focussed and supportive of the internal team’s business drivers and project objectives. 

The procurement process has seen a reduction of 15% in the capital cost of the scheme and an increase in value of greater than 30% against the original business case.
