Integration & Collaborative Working
Sponsored by CIOB North East
Winner – Esh Civils, Sunderland City Council and Capita for the Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor Phase 3 project.
From inception all key stakeholders and parties involved worked collaboratively to ensure the project was delivered on time and on budget. This was done through various objectives including improved regeneration to the riverside sites which will reduce the congestion across the city and improvement of the city’s public and sustainable transport network.
Through the framework created for this scheme it has successfully improved local employment, as well as boosting the economy, exceeding all targets. Employment of a full time service coordinator to ensure daily collaboration with the project team was essential, which also resulted in cost savings. 32 jobs were created for local workers with a £26million spend with local SMEs. The project has set the benchmark for similar schemes in the future.
