The cost of not saving time is?

Saving time in business is saving money. It does not matter what your line of business is or where you are in the industry. Getting the job done quicker saves money. In construction and on building sites. Not having jobs completed on time can to the issue, often the larger the build – the larger the penalty. Penalty clauses, client remorse and reputation are all at stake if time is not adhered to.

Types of delay and the consequences

With exception to the great British weather, there are limited occasions when a construction site will have reason to not meet deadlines. On larger civil engineering projects such as Crossrail, where the Elizabeth Line has been delayed until Autumn 2019. Planning for specific deadline years in advance as the proposed opening date was always going to be difficult it is like trying to hit a moving dart board which is 300 feet away with your eyes closed. Whilst the Elizabeth line development is so complex and should win awards for its sheer audacity. That opening date will have been compounded by micro delays – the level of civil engineering, the sheer human accomplishment of what they are trying to achieve is massive. Due to the high value and profile or the works, London can see the impact of the works, London can feel the delays.

Crossrail is the highest profile civil engineering project in the UK with multiple sites, accepting multiple projects and multiple disciplined trades working in conjunction to deliver success. The level of equipment that is needed on site at specific times is mind blowing. From the immense engineering aspect of the tunnelling, to the installation of the new stations, their bespoke artwork and safety features – this is rail infrastructure at the vanguard of technology and will last the 100 years plus. Ferrying London’s commuters and her visitors and changing the dimensions of the London Underground forever. Crossrail is a success story already. if you take all these aspects in to account. Simon Wright (CEO of Crossrail) and his team should be proud. The next chapter of the worlds oldest underground mass transit system may be delayed but it is still on track to pave the way for a Greater London. The lessons learnt in Crossrail will be crucial for the upcoming Crossrail2 project. Where London takes her next leap of development from North to South. She will again evolve and yet again mass transit as we know it will never be the same again.
