Crossrail to share best practice with contractors

A knowledge sharing website has been launched by Crossrail in an aim to raise the bar in the construction industry and share knowledge and insight.

Crossrail Learning Legacy encourages other projects to ‘pinch with pride’, downloading documents, templates and datasets that have been used successfully on the Crossrail programme.

The policy of good practice sharing includes a wide variety of topics, including health and safety, project management, engineering and the environment.

The most popular documents feature include a paper on managing innovation on Crossrail as well as an integration project used to help design the spaces outside Crossrail stations.

Further material will be published every six months during the rest of the project.

Andrew Wolstenholme, Crossrail Chief Executive, said: “Passing on the lessons and good practice that we have learned at Crossrail is an absolutely essential part of raising the bar in the delivery of major projects.

“With an unprecedented number of infrastructure schemes around the corner, now is the time to start sharing what we have learned so the UK can build on its reputation for delivering safely, on time and on budget.”

Tony Meggs, Chief Executive, Infrastructure and Projects Authority, said: “The creation of a learning environment is vital to improving project performance, and we see Crossrail’s Learning Legacy as an impressive example of best practice.

“We encourage all project professionals to draw on this excellent resource; the more we can learn from the experience of others, the closer we will come to flawless project execution.”
