Network Rail & Skanska

The project comprised of a £350m viaduct of simple construction on a very complex site.  The project commenced in 2007 with Skanska missing 11 out of 11 initial promised repossession dates for traders on Borough Market - this was land used by traders that was required for defined durations to construct the viaduct.

There was a high risk of the contract going into dispute and both parties recognised that something different has to be done and a new way of working was established that would eradicate the problems encountered early on in the programme.
