Establishing ISO 22301 in Crossrail: A business continuity planning case study
Steelhenge Consulting is delighted to announce the acceptance of a second paper on Establishing ISO 22301 in Europe’s Largest Infrastructure Project.
Steelhenge’s Project Manager, Katie Collison will be presenting jointly with Steve Hails, Health & Safety Director for Crossrail.
As Crossrail's delivery partner for business continuity planning and incident management, Steelhenge implemented a Business Continuity Management System for the project in line with ISO 22301, the International Standard for Business Continuity Management Systems.
The presentation, which will take place on the second day of this prestigious conference at Olympia, London, will guide delegates through the challenges and approaches to achieving successful implementation of a Business Continuity Management System, using the case study of highly complex construction project Crossrail.
At a cost of £14.8bn, Crossrail is one of the largest single infrastructure investments ever undertaken in the UK. It will deliver a new high-capacity, high-frequency railway for London and the South East, incorporating 21km of tunnels under central London, 37 stops and running 118km in length. Currently in the tunnelling phase, there are forty construction sites running in parallel, requiring the coordination of 10,000 suppliers. For the first train to roll in in 2018, each phase of Crossrail’s development must complete on time. Therefore, minimising the likelihood and impact of any potential disruptions to the project through development of an effective Business Continuity Management System was a vital consideration to ensure the success of the project.
The Steelhenge project team is highly experienced in the implementation of business continuity management systems aligned or certified to BS 25999-2 and, more recently, ISO 22301. This extends not only to planning and programme management but also training and exercising to validate plans and rehearse staff in their roles.
Steelhenge is exhibiting on Stand 30 for the duration of the BCM World Conference, where the team will be showcasing their crisis and continuity training and exercising capability. Following their presentations, Director Dominic Cockram and Katie Collision will be available to answer any questions.
