During a recent project at Turnham Green Tube Station for FM Conway, on behalf of London Underground (LU), Barhale were able to demonstrate how Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) enabled the development of a realistic and successful cost plan. This in turn led to collaborative interaction at design stages and the delivery of a successful project in line with the agreed cost.

The scope of works required excavation of the existing rail embankment under the six arches and installation of extensive temporary works formed by sheet piles braced by frames against the viaduct wall.

This was a high risk project. The works would be taking place in a restricted area with limited head-room, and in very close proximity to live railway lines (District Line and Piccadilly Line on the Underground network).
