Arcadis and joint venture partner Mott MacDonald are the joint lead designers in the METRON consortium working on the Underground Station Design and Technical Services (USDTS) contract as part of Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro project. With 31 stations and 66km of new metro rail, Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project. Stage 2 will include a 30 kilometre extension of metro rail under Sydney Harbour and through new CBD stations.
Arcadis set a new Australian benchmark for the use of Building Information Modeling - or BIM – as part of the Wulkuraka New Generation Rollingstock (NGR) Maintenance Centre, a state of the art facility developed to service and maintain 75 new, high tech passenger trains. For the first time Arcadis developed a unified platform able to integrate seven different design software packages. Arcadis’ innovative use of BIM delivered widespread benefits, including better asset management, cost accounting, environmental performance, productivity, safety and fewer errors.
Arcadis is the Programme Partner (Systems) working with Network Rail’s existing Digital Railway team. Arcadis, supported by Ramboll, will help shape the Digital Railway programme, delivering a range of services including technical leadership, engineering management, project management, stakeholder engagement, risk management, business change and industry training, and data and asset management.
As Programme Partner, Arcadis will lead the development of the Digital Railway Toolkit, creating a set of requirements, specifications, processes, and competency and training requirements that will support the potential roll-out of the Digital Railway on a number of strategic routes across the network.
Favourite project: Auckland Electrification Project. As the Design Manager, I was involved in the project from development through detail design, construction, to commissioning. It was extremely satisfying to see first-hand the difference we made to peoples’ lives.
Favourite project: Sydney Light Rail and Sydney Metro. It is satisfying to see your work being implemented, knowing that you contributed to a good outcome for the public that will be there for people to use for years to come.
Favourite project: The Hexham to Kooragang Re–signalling Project. I developed an alternative design solution that met the clients goals of increasing capacity by reducing signalling headways, and was implemented for a fraction of the original price.
