Client: Go-Ahead (Southern Railway)

Year: 2013

SNC-Lavalin Rail & Transit was awarded a contract to provide a tailored package of support to Go-Ahead for their East Grinstead Station Reconstruction Project. Workstreams included: Project Management, Contract Management and Safety/CDM Management.

SNC-Lavalin Rail & Transit supplied highly experienced civil construction experts who acted as ‘translator’ between the contractor and client to ensure practical resolution of site issues were dealt with. We provided a collaborative ethos which brought together contractor, client, and as a project team working towards the same goal. With this approach we successfully and safely delivered a new station on time and to budget despite encountering significant challenges which were overcome along the way. During the project the key benefit to the client was access to a Project Director and Project Manager with experience of construction in an operational rail environment, and a CDM co-ordinator and health and safety manager.

During 2012 SNC-Lavalin was involved in the following scope of work:

  • Construction of new modular station concourse building, approach, car park and demolition of existing building.
  • Co-ordinated various parties including architect, designer and contractor.
  • Forging a close working relationship with all parties to rework design to overcome constructability issues.
  • Management of the principal contractor, including monitoring of progress on site, and commercial oversight.
  • Provision of specialist civil, structural, mechanical and electrical design / construction advice, as required.
  • Ensuring compliance with Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007.
