First ScotRail Shields Depot Enhancement Project

Faithful+Gould is providing cost planning and contract management services for a new 3400m2 rail depot at St Andrew's Drive, Glasgow. The new facility is being constructed for a new fleet of new electric trains. The project began with demolition and removal of existing structures and will include: Stabling facilities, twin headed wheel lathe including structure, road access to depot, shed, offices and mess as wel as heavy lifting facilities.

Revised permanent way/overhead line/isolation arrangement to a significant portion of the existing stabling roads.

Faithful+Gould is undertaking the project in three stages:

  1. Produce an initial benchmark cost estimate for the proposed depot works

  2. Develop a detailed cost model for comparison purposes, undertake a cost risk assessment, and provide supplementary procurement advice

  3. Provide post-contract NEC commercial and risk services

Our commercial team were co-located in the local office at the start of the project, enabling constant communication and collaboration. The project is expected to be completed in 2010.
