Oxford Corridor Project Case Study
Ganymede was appointed by Network Rail as the primary labour supplier for the Oxford Corridor Project to help deliver a package of schemes and improve the Great Western Route.The Great Western route is being modernised to bring passengers faster, more frequent, more reliable services. As both passenger and freight traffic through Oxford continues to grow, Network Rail is delivering a package of schemes including re-signalling, track remodelling and upgrades to increase capacity, connections and route availability for passengers and freight operators.The previous principal contractor for the Oxford Corridor project went into liquidation in 2018, consequently jeopardising planned operations at the time. Without an effective solution, the potential impact would have been operational delays, increased project costs, mass workforce redundancies and failure to meet key strategic project milestones.The Solution:With the involuntary change in the contract landscape, Network Rail became the principal contractor and formed the Western Enhancement Delivery (WED) division and Ganymede was appointed by WED as the primary labour supplier for the project.To enable a smooth integration within the 21-day time frame, Ganymede needed to win the hearts and minds of the incumbent workforce who were in turmoil with the uncertainty surrounding their positions. Equally, it required the creation of a new account management / resource team who could implement robust resource plans to meet the intended skilled labour uplifts for the duration of the project but, namely to meet the non-standard blockade programmed in four weeks after the resource contract was taken over by Ganymede.Key Facts:Ganymede integrated an incumbent workforce of over 60 individuals, completed relevant compliance checks, developed a training programme and provided a fleet of vehicles including telematics and driver induction/training, all within the project’s tight timescale of 21-days.Ganymede helped to deliver four successful commissionings over three blockades for a new track layout and signalling system. The project included a mixture of track and civil works including track renewals, station refurbishment, piling and end wall construction, demolition, track formation and acoustic barrier installation. At peak we were regularly deploying and managing over 150 personnel at the project in Oxford.All works were delivered without any lost time accidents or incidents. Including the delivery of a major 21-day blockade that required a 150% uplift of resources.Following on from the Oxford Corridor Project, Ganymede continues to support Network Rail (WED) with resources on other projects.Value Added:An integrated Oxford delivery structure was created by key figures from Ganymede and Network Rail senior management team. The newly created dedicated account management team held a series of consultation events at the project depot. This helped allay any fears the project team had and introduced all the operatives to Ganymede. These events were pivotal in outlining the opportunities on the project, our plans as a business moving forward and the expectations from passengers.The programme involved a 21-day implementation time-frame for Ganymede to compliantly ensure the smooth integration of the incumbent workforce. Over 60 individuals were consulted and contracted to Ganymede resulting in no losses of any jobs. The Ganymede fleet department successfully sourced a large fleet of vehicles on to the project through our supply chain, ensuring business as usual from day one of the newly formed collaboration.As part of the staff transition / integration process and in preparation to the forthcoming planned blockade, we held a series of Safety Moment events. This enabled us to embed our safety culture, identify any skills gaps and develop a dedicated training programme.Fundamental to the blockade’s success, was the fact we ensured every shift had internal resource management or our safety team on site. Part of the process also included site update reports every 12 hours to the WED project team. The report outlined real time progress with information on planned work against programme, resource updates, safety close call reporting and resolution, safety status and potential contingency requirements.The ResultThrough a positive safety culture and a passionate resourceful attitude, the Oxford Corridor project was a major success. More importantly, all works were delivered without any lost time accidents or incidents, there were no overruns throughout the life of the project and all the works were delivered on time and within budget.Following on from the success of the Oxford Corridor Project, Ganymede continue to support the WED project team with resources for their ongoing projects.“As you know we completed what we can only be described as a significant piece of work in the Oxford area. We delivered a major milestone in the project successfully and with very few real issues. The professionalism on the WED team has been excellence and the attitudes great. I’m really proud of what we have all achieved as a team and am really grateful to you all. On the Whole I’ve been really impressed with the Ganymede team in taking on the mantel since Carillion’s demise and supporting Network Rail with the continued delivery of the Oxford project. I’ve found everybody in Ganymede has wanted to help an support that delivery and resolve any issues quickly. You should all be really proud of this team, well done and thank you.” Senior Programme Manager, Western Enhancements Delivery – Network RailGet in TouchUse the form below to contact us today about how we can add value to your business.
AMCO Case Study
Ganymede were awarded a nationwide framework agreement for AMCO in April 2012, and were given a 7 day turnaround to become sole supplier for the safety critical resources for the LNE and East Midlands regions. In addition to this Ganymede had to procure key personnel who were identified by the AMCO senior management.The Solution:Ganymede have proved they have the skilled resources and management structure to find the necessary personnel required and work diligently alongside AMCO and our various other clients to ensure all objectives are met and no contract suffers as a result of peak requirements.Key Facts:Major projects have included the Hatfield Landslide, Hexham station refurbishment, Adwick le Street refurbishment, Claycross tunnel repairs, Skipton station refurbishment and Whitwell tunnel surveys.There is a continual variation in the resource requirements and this could range from 20 – 160 safety critical operatives of various disciplines weekly (Average 50-60).The Result:As a result of our success the business expanded fourfold in just over a year. Subsequently, the partnership is continually developing and we have now branched into the Western region namely the Southwest.Get in TouchUse the form below to contact us today about how we can add value to your business.
Babcock Rail (CLIP) Case Study
Ganymede, have succeeded in forging strong contract relations nationally, with Babcock Rail throughout their rail civils projects and plain line renewals contracts. Babcock is one of the principal contractors for plain line track renewals and delivers a multimillion pound programme of works to strict delivery deadlines, within a tight budget for Network Rail Infrastructure Projects. From our early contract, back in 2008 working on the Erewash project, to playing a major role in the implementation of the Contingency Labour Integration programme (CLIP). Ganymede has always prided ourselves on being a partner of choice and a trusted supplier.Client:Babcock RailChallenge:Both Babcock & Network Rail’s vision for CLIP was to deliver a self-sustainable experienced workforce that could deliver all the plain line renewals requirements throughout the peaks and the troughs within the predominantly weekend scheduled work programme. It was identified from the onset that this could only be achieved by a joint approach from the four core labour suppliers of contingent labour to Network Rail. Consequently, the brief was straightforward, Babcock were moving from their current supply chain and Ganymede alongside our partners were expected to cover the requirements of 300 plus operatives of varying skills within a four-week period.To make it work Ganymede’s role in CLIP was to assist Babcock in co-ordinating a series of high level and operational meetings so, all four core suppliers could facilitate and implement a deliverable integration programme for labour for the Babcock renewals programme in Wessex.Key Challenges:Change management programme – Integration of the new supply chainDisproportion in requirements, predominantly weekend onlySpike in the programmeUplift in DC third rail strapping teamsMaintaining a sustainable workforceFatigue managementSolution:Testimony to Ganymede’s industry knowledge and the trust shown by Babcock in our operational capabilities we were placed in a lead position alongside the Babcock resource team. We were tasked with identifying a sustainable split of work within the programme and implementing a robust deliverable programme of works across our supply chain partner’s that was in line with each of the company’s capabilities. We set about introducing a series of planning and review meetings to continually monitor progress through every stage of the programme. Following the planning meetings, and in agreement with each supply partner we compiled a comprehensive resource programme which was handed to the Babcock management team for verification and sign off.Get in TouchUse the form below to contact us today about how we can add value to your business.
Network Rail - Labour Supply Case Study
Ganymede’s initial partnership with Network Rail began in 1998 with only a small team of 15 workers in and around London. As a testament to the commitment, collaboration and subsequent success of this partnership, Ganymede have managed to continually grow year on year to become one of the largest suppliers of contingent labour to Network Rail. Ganymede is the primary supplier of contingent labour in the LNE North, Wales, Western and Wessex Regions and secondary supplier in the East Midlands region.We believe our success is down to a collaborative approach and the trust shown by Network Rail, who have always been very clear about their key objectives and their expectations of shared goals. Our ability to work in synergy with Network Rail to understand their critical core business needs and the capability to use this knowledge so, we could find the most effective solution for their labour requirements has helped build a mutual trust and interdependency between our two organisations. Because of this approach, we were proud to be awarded a long-term contract in 2015 as a primary supplier of contingent labour Network Rail, resulting in more than 1500 primary sponsored multi-skilled workers of all disciplines deployed nationally daily.Our solution involves the supply and management of a skilled and experienced workforce nationwide including the management of fleet, logistics, tools and equipment. We are involved in all aspects of the workforce management solution from initial recruitment and selection, through training, competency management, career development, planning and allocation along with on-site auditing of quality and health and safety performance.For Ganymede, it has always been about the people; our clients, our management teams & most importantly our skilled workforce.
