VolkerFitzpatrick, along with their design partner Atkins, were awarded the Network Rail southern multi-functional framework – Anglia route (MFF) in 2014. The collaboration to deliver these works is known as the Anglia Route Collaboration (ARC). ARC will deliver platform extensions, station enhancements, new footbridges and upgrades to bridges and embankments along the Anglia route.
Network Rail has also selected VolkerFitzpatrick to deliver a £94m contract to upgrade the West Anglia Main Line. The upgrade will improve connectivity to the planned £3.5bn Meridian Water Housing scheme in Edmonton, which is set to deliver 8,000 homes as one of 20 proposed London housing zones.
The team are utilising CEMAR to support delivery of a significant number of rail infrastructure improvements and enhancements during the framework. ARC is underpinned by the principles of BS11000 for collaborative business relationships. Adopting and implementing BS11000 supports and complements the NEC framework contract ARC is operating under, providing a meaningful way to measure and continuously improve performance over the duration of the framework.
VolkerFitzpatrick are administering their NEC contract management using CEMAR, including for ECC and PSC contracts. Early contractor involvement is generating significant benefits for the MFF Anglia Route, as £10m of potential efficiencies have already been identified through the implementation of robust design, planning and constructability reviews early in project life cycles. In excess of 11,000 communications have been administered by the team using CEMAR and we're delighted to continue to support VolkerFitzpatrick's growing rail portfolio.
Maintenance Management Software for Heathrow Airport Expansion
Implementation of CEMAR across Heathrow Airport’s Capital and Maintenance contracts is proving to be a great success, with on-going use since 2011 which has supported several portfolios, including Terminal Restoration and Modernisation and Products and Capacity Optimisation.
Infrastructure Project Management for Strelasund Crossing
Opened in October 2007, the second Strelasund crossing was constructed to provide a new connection between the popular holiday destination island of Ruegen, the city of Stralsund on the Baltic coast, and the A20 Ost Autobahn. The new link relieves traffic congestion on the old three-section Rugendamm road and rail bridge.
Objection Management System for the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link Tunnel
The Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link Tunnel (also known as the Baltic Sea Tunnel) will be the world’s longest immersed tunnel. Once open it will consist of a double-track railway and a four-lane motorway spanning a total of 18km. The tunnel's construction currently represents the largest transportation project in Northern Europe and is one of the largest infrastructure projects in the world.
