GNGE

North London Line 

Orbis

We supported the complex £280 million Great Northern Great Eastern (GNGE) project by bringing together the cultures of four alliance partners, improving reporting and managing access on an 86-mile route. A major achievement was the awarding of Outstanding Safety Performance at the VIP Awards 2014.

The largest of the 2012 suite of projects aimed to increase the commuter capacity on this key route to the Olympic Park. We designed and implemented a set of engineering design and delivery controls for the organisation.

(Offering Rail Better Information Services): We worked client-side as a trusted partner responsible for the end-to-end delivery of forty-two projects within the seven-year digital transformation programme to revolutionise data and asset management.
