Heathrow has been named as one of four early adopters of ICE’s Project 13.
The ICE announced the early adopters of its industry-wide Project 13 change programme this morning.
Anglian Water’s Capital Delivery Alliances, the Environment Agency’s Next Generation Supplier Arrangements, Heathrow Airport’s expansion, and National Grid’s London Power Tunnels will create a Project 13 implementation group to share experiences and learnings from the programme.
Project 13, which has been launched in partnership with the Infrastructure Client Group, aims to deliver better outcomes for the public and customers of infrastructure, a more highly skilled, innovative workforce and create a more sustainable, productive construction industry.
ICE director general Nick Baveystock said: “The launch of Project 13 is the chance for industry and government to change how we deliver our infrastructure.
“Developed between industry, clients and government over a number of years, Project 13 places customers at the heart of our national infrastructure programme, focusing on the social and economic value infrastructure can provide over the long-term.
“We look to the government to continue to support a solution developed by and with the industry with all the potential benefits for the public and the taxpayer. This is a win-win. We should just ask ourselves why we wouldn’t want to use Project 13 principles to deliver better value.”
ICG chair and director of @One Alliance Dale Evans added: “We are pleased to be launching the implementation phase of Project 13. This project has bought together individuals and organisations from across the sector, and within government, to think seriously about how we can better provide infrastructure for the future.
“We hope that industry will embrace this approach so we can begin working towards a more sustainable and productive future for our sector.”
