PROJECT:        Perth Temporary Service Provisions
CLIENT:            Story Scotland
END CLIENT:   ScotRail
END DATE:      October 2019

SCOPE OF WORKS

To undertake a topographical and drainage survey on the servicing depot at Perth.

Production of a track design submission to accommodate the new HST fleet to be serviced.

Production of a civils design submission to serve the new fleet to be serviced for fuel, CET, tanking/potable water and shore supplies.

DELIVERABLES

 - Site topographical survey and drawings

 - Detailed design submission drawings – track and civils

 - Specifications and calculations – track and civils

 - Design decision log – track and civils

 - Designers risk assessment – track and civils

 - Civils Form 002 and Form 003 submission package and AFCs

 - Track Form A/B submission package and AFCs

KEY ACHIEVEMENTS

Through our design development we achieved a more efficient catchment area for the on-site buried interceptor which in turn reduced the size of the interceptor and ultimately the cost of it.

Effective GI and track design justifications resulted in cost savings by means of more efficient track specification (reduced the depth of the dig) and provision of serviceable materials.

PROJECT:      INVERNESS WHEEL LATHE

CLIENT:          SVM-GLASGOW

END CLIENT:  SCOTRAIL

END DATE:     December 2018

SCOPE OF WORKS

To provide design services to support the new Mobiturn wheel lathe.

The existing jacking strips in the heavy maintenance shed do not extend far enough to allow a two-car lift.  In order to avoid splitting units to use the Mobiturn the jacking strips need to be extended.

The condition of the existing slab and the capacity of the jacking strip was unknown, therefore detailed structural investigations had to be undertaken. 

DELIVERABLES

- Site topographical survey and GI/SI

- Options, Outline and detailed design

- Drawings, specifications and calculations

- Designer risk assessment

- Approved for Construction drawings

- As-built records and drawings

SCOPE OF WORKS

To provide civils infrastructure design to support in the installation of a temporary shore supply at Haymarket depot:

 - Control cabinet base

 - Lineside pillar foundation

 - Trifurcation box foundation

 - Cable routing and trunking

The design needed to consider gauge clearance for rolling stock in the depot environment.

DELIVERABLES

To provide information to be included in E&P non-complex works design submission:

 - Drawings

 - Specification

KEY ACHIEVEMENTS

 - Achieved a quick turnaround of the design which was required

 - Adaptation of the NR standard design details enabled efficiency in delivery time and cost

KEY CHALLENGES

Depot location with existing services routes had tight clearances so careful planning on location of the field equipment was key.

PROJECT:        CP5 Kent Lighting Renewals
CLIENT:            SSE Enterprise Rail
END CLIENT:   Network Rail
END DATE:      March 2018

SCOPE OF WORKS

To provide civils design services to the principal contractor for a design and build contract covering 5 railway depots, 4 level crossing and a tunnel in Kent. Specifically, for design of:

 - lighting columns and bollard foundation design for driver walkways across 5 separate depot sites

 - lighting mast foundations at 4 level crossing locations

 - bulkhead tunnel lighting fixing details and cable management system for Wadhurst tunnel

 - cable management systems, troughing routes and equipment case foundations

And for the integration of the civils design with the E&P designer.

DELIVERABLES

 - The provision of Contractors Engineering Manager and civils discipline Contractors Responsible Engineer to undertake engineering management on the project

 - Site topographical survey and GI/SI

 - Outline and detailed design

 - Drawings, specifications and calculations

 - Designers risk assessment

 - Network Rail civil engineering approvals Forms 001/002/003

 - Approved for Construction drawings

 - As-built records and drawings

KEY ACHIEVEMENTS

 - Whilst the individual milestones were challenged by Client change, the overall dates were met by good teamwork and rescheduling

 - Accolade was received by SSE from Network Rail on the overall team delivery

 - Design was delivered within the original tender sum

KEY CHALLENGES

 - Multiple locations of the delivery team: E&P designer in Glasgow, Civils designer in Crewe, end Client in Ashford. This was overcome by developing good relationships and lines of communication early in the project through joint site visits, design review meetings and project meetings

 - Client driven change: This was managed through regular dialogue between the project manager and the design teams.  Early identification of the change was achieved by holding design review meetings with the client which meant the impact was minimal and could be accommodated
