During the COVID19 pandemic the 15 organisations in the Area 9 SRN Alliance worked collaboratively, adding value to the delivery of works and culminating in a virtual workshop attended by over 500 people.
The maturity of the Alliance ensured optimum delivery throughout the pandemic. The strength of the collaboration is demonstrated through the enthusiasm to maintain momentum in meetings and Joint Improvement Teams. The virtual COVID workshop overcame the impact of staff not being able to collaborative together in person and provided a platform for all Alliance organisations to communicate and share their experiences with a wide range of staff.
The M6 J19 Improvement scheme moved into construction in March 2020, just as the first cases of Covid-19 were being reported in the UK. Days after a national lockdown was announced, the Integrated Project Team (AmeySRM, Highways England and WSP) had in place a comprehensive and inclusive plan, outlining a clear approach to achieving their shared objectives.
One year on, the IPT is celebrating many achievements, including a programme that’s on schedule and the installation of 36 beams across the motorway. Their greatest achievement, however, is that they have accomplished all this while keeping their people – and the wider community – safe.
From hitting revised (Covid) business targets and helping clients succeed in their projects to authoring research reports, winning awards, welcoming new people, closer collaboration between offices and looking after everyone's wellbeing - during 2020/21 'Team Momentum' has shown what successful teams can achieve together.
But a defining moment in mid-2020 brought home exactly how it feels to be part of an inclusive, collaborative and progressive team. And how emotion and passion can have such an impact in the professional world.
Teamwork begun in 2019, proved a solid grounding for the successful delivery of improvements to one of Transport for London’s (TfL) main river crossings. In partnership with Ringway Jacobs, Eurovia Contracting delivered the Vauxhall Bridge Refurbishment Scheme with TfL throughout the first and into the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
Maximising the opportunities COVID presented to manage disruption on this vital Thames crossing point, by working more collaboratively through digital communication platforms and solutions at all stages created outcomes with lasting benefits.
The positive collaboration demonstrated by the team now sets new benchmarks in excellent scheme delivery for all project stakeholders.
