Used Risk Buffer of the overall Contingencies

The request was successful.

Dear Crossrail Limited,

I hope this e-mail finds you well.

I am currently a 4th year Civil Engineering bachelor student at University of Applied Science in Biberach, Germany. In order to receive my degree we are asked to choose a topic for our final thesis. The Crossrail projects you are currently working on was part of our course last semester and it has caught my strong interest and fascination in how are running the project, keep it on time and on budget.

At this point of my thesis, I have decided to focus on the Crossrail project and specialising on ist construction techniques and contract delivery method. My professor mentioned in his lectures that a new technique has been invented to construct and build the Crossrail without disturbing any pedestrians, locals and the general public in their everyday life.

How is the procurement / tendering procedure with the NEC 3 ECC Option C?
Is it possible to get a bar diagram with al buildings?
And is the project still on budget? Do you have any list of the used budget and buffer?

If in any case this specific part of Crossrail has been contracted to another company, would you be so kind to pass any contact information on for to continue my research?

I am very much looking forward to your response and want to thank you for your help already.

Yours faithfully,

Florian Riedel

Dear Florian,
Thank you for messages of 25 November 2015 which you sent through the What do They Know website. Strictly speaking this does not come under the rules of the Freedom of Information Act as it is a request for technical information and assistance in your studies. I have passed your messages on to the Chief Engineer of Crossrail to see if he can assist you.
In the meantime there is a wealth of information on the Crossrail project already available in the technical press, including published papers and reports of conferences and seminars. The Institution of Civil Engineers in association with Crossrail Ltd has just published two volumes of collected technical papers which are available from the ICE – see their website https://www.ice.org.uk/ . Other sources are the British Tunnelling Society - https://www.britishtunnelling.org.uk/ and the journal Tunnels and Tunnelling – a search on Crossrail will bring up a list of reports and papers - http://www.tunnelsonline.info/search/?q%...
I have attached the following which you might find useful to get you started:
• A presentation to the 2009 BTS Conference by Chris Dulake who was until recently Crossrail Chief Engineer
• A presentation on Station Design
• A presentation on tunnel design by Mike King – head of tunnelling
• Bridge Lecture by Douglas Oakervee – formerly Executive Chairman of CRL – gives an overall background to the project.
• Overall programme.
I trust this is useful. I have placed these files in Dropbox which you should be able to access using the following link - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/im837xe911lj7...

Dear Florian,

 

Mike Black, Crossrail Head of Geotechnics, has passed me some more
information which you might find useful.   The attached paper, although
focussed on drilling methods in London Clay, has some useful information
on compensation grouting, what it is, how it works, etc.  The two links
below may also be of interest.  The first is a video of the Royal Academy
of Engineering’s Hinton Lecture which was held last week.  In it, Prof
Robert Mair of Cambridge University talks about creating underground
infrastructure, the challenges involved and the technology involved in
doing it safely.  It focusses specifically on the Crossrail Project.  The
second link is specifically about compensation grouting and looks at the
Bond Street Underground Station upgrade work, which interfaces with
Crossrail.
