We are able to place individuals or small teams within a Contractor’s project team to fulfil specific roles from Shift Engineer to Project Director, or to perform certain tasks for long or short periods. We are generally able to mobilise quickly, and our personnel are able to call on the full depth of LBA’s experience at any time.
We are able to plan, specify, procure, and manage or supervise ground investigation works for tunnels and other underground structures, ensuring compliance with the various relevant industry standards regarding desk studies, UXO assessment, drilling, logging, geophysics, testing, etc.
We are able to react to the ensuing results and adapt testing and further investigation accordingly, and we can produce or comment on Site Investigation Reports and Interpretative Reports.
Bid Preparation and Planning
We bring the ideal mix of significant construction experience and process knowledge in to tender teams to ensure that the project is well planned, well costed, and well described, resulting in a high tender success rate. We analyse the Client’s requirements and mould proposals to suit these, with value engineering proposals to improve pedestrian journey time or minimise station closures, and not just for cost and time savings.
Pursuing active Risk Management alongside their Construction or Engineering Management roles, our personnel are well aware of the requirements of the BTS / ABI Joint Code of Practice. We use our in-depth experience in the design and construction phase of complex projects to identify, assess and manage risks to provide value-adding solutions and opportunities, and to inform project decisions.
We use tools such as Mitigation Action Plans and Readiness Reviews to concentrate on the management of risk, and not the management of risk allowances.
