Project 13 has officially moved into the implementation phase.
Led by the Infrastructure Client Group and supported by the ICE, the industry-wide change programme is intended to improve outcomes for the public and infrastructure customers, deliver a more highly skilled, innovative workforce and create a more sustainable, productive construction industry.
The new collaborative enterprise business model was made available online at the implementation phase launch event last month.
The new Project 13 website has a suite of tools and resources and a training programme is being developed for those wanting more in-depth knowledge.
A group of early adopters was also named at the launch. These are organisations which have agreed to start implementing the Project 13 principles on ongoing, or new, programmes.
The first of these early adopters are Anglian Water’s Capital Delivery Alliances, the Environment Agency’s Next Generation Supplier Arrangements, Heathrow Airport Ltd’s expansion programme, and National Grid’s London Power Tunnels project.
ICE head of policy and external affairs Hannah Vickers said: “We are excited to have both public and private sector organisations involved at such a crucial stage. Their feedback will prove invaluable, as they share experiences and learnings, helping the industry to understand the tangible benefits which can be realised and practical improvements to further refine our approach.”
