The Bristol MetroBus - a View From the Customer and Supplier

Adam Rome
From public engagement and network management constraints to the amount of ‘unknown’ in the ground, infrastructure project delivery poses significant risks which require a robust project management solution.

The MetroBus is one of the largest infrastructure projects in the region which has the added complexities of being co-governed by two local authorities and a regional joint leadership board. These intricies combined with the difficulties of a co-governed project, resulted in the need for an integrated and collaborative approach to its management – an issue which the Bristol MetroBus programme and Faithful+Gould had to resolve.

The MetroBus is one of the largest infrastructure projects in the region which has the added complexities of being co-governed by two local authorities and a regional joint leadership board.

To manage these complexities and support client and project objectives, Faithful+Gould  combined large programme and portfolio management experience, with civil engineering and infrastructure expertise to develop a bespoke management approach for the MetroBus project. The approach has assisted the client and stakeholders in the rapid, collaborative management of risks and issues whilst remaining compliant with contract and statutory constraints.

Continuing Faithful+Gould’s local and national support of the Association of Project Management (APM), we will be discussing our approach to dealing with these complex and challenging issues in the delivery of this infrastructure project in a joint presentation on 28th February 2017.
