Tottenham Court Road – Crossrail works
Client: London Underground
As part of the £500M scheme to upgrade Tottenham Court Road station, London Underground are also undertaking a £50M package of works for the future Crossrail Station.
The LU Crossrail works comprise construction of the Goslett Yard Box and escalator shaft, which will comprise the Eastern Entrance Hall to the new Crossrail Station.
The LU scope includes development of the structural design, demolition of the buildings currently occupying the site, settlement assessment and monitoring of neighbouring buildings, diversion of utilities, stakeholder management and construction of the box for handover to Crossrail to undertake premises and services fit out.
CPC’s role on this project is to Project Manage the Goslett Yard section of the works on behalf of LU. This comprises several phases, from the initial agreement between LU and Crossrail for LU to undertake these works, a separate demolition contract to clear the site for the main contractor and then construction of the box by the main contractor.
The interface with Crossrail as Client and funder of the works is also managed by CPC, which includes the Programme Client team, the Project Delivery Partner and the various contracts undertaking works at Tottenham Court Road.
CPC’s knowledge and experience of complex projects with many sensitive interfaces has enabled the CPC Project Managers to identify key issues quickly and take appropriate action.
The client had the benefit of CPC’s knowledge of the New Engineering Contract, which enabled an early start in formal communications to the Contractor following Contract Award and in advance of the Contract Administration Team commencing works.
The client also benefited from the approach taken by CPC to areas such as risk management, where Goslett Yard has been the first section of the project to establish processes following award of the main Contract.
