The government is planning a new high-speed rail network, from London to Birmingham and to Manchester and Leeds, known as HS2. The initial plan is for a new railway line between London and the West Midlands carrying 400m-long (1,300ft) trains with as many as 1,100 seats per train. They would operate at speeds of up to 250mph – faster than any current operating speed in Europe – and would run as often as 14 times per hour in each direction. This would be followed by a V-shaped second phase taking services from Birmingham to Manchester and Leeds. The Department for Transport says there will be almost 15,000 seats an hour on trains between London and the cities of Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds – treble the current capacity.
What do we do for this project
Behavioural Risk monitoring
Using the RADAR process and technology ResoLex provides a behavioural risk monitoring service to HS2. The assignment started with the Main Works
Civils Contracts (MWCC) but now incorporating Enabling Works Contracts (EWC), ResoLex has agreed a set of behavioural indicators as a method of monitoring the effectiveness of key relationships on the project and the risk that team behaviours pose.
We conduct a risk evaluation exercise using a web-based questionnaire system to the circa 1500 team members across the MWCCs. The exercise includes both quantitative and qualitative responses from the team members. The reports are presented back to Project Directors and Collaboration Leads for each area with actions generated to share best practice and /or interventions to improve areas of poor performance.
