Ideas sought on how to coordinate London’s construction

Northern Line extension TBM

The Greater London Authority is looking to set up an Infrastructure Coordination Unit, in anticipation of a spike in construction work in the capital over the next couple of decades.

It says many of its stakeholders agree that construction work in the Capital could be better coordinated.

Now it has published a prior information notice in the OJEU, which is seeking ideas on how the unit would work.

The notice said: “The Greater London Authority is developing a specification for such coordination, which would be self-funded from efficiencies realised and overseen by a high level infrastructure group that the GLA will convene in the autumn. One option might be a programme management office for London, with local coordination units.

“The GLA is seeking a collaborative response from all industry participants, supported by experienced project and programme managers. Different options (with associated costs, benefits, risks, advantages and disadvantages) may be included.”

It says there is the potential to set up a programme management office for London with local coordination units.
