Project & Programme Manager Visiting Lecturer UCL
Turning experience into knowledge for Project Controls
Summary: Simon will talk about his experience of managing and controlling London Undergrounds’ Bank Station Capacity Upgrade project as it transitioned from design to construction. Simon also studied the transition as a part of his PhD and will draw on the benefits of undertaking research both in practice and for practice. Simon’s PhD research investigates how ‘time’ influences construction project organisations as they move from the early ‘development’ phase of design and statutory planning, through to the ‘delivery’ phase of construction. Specifically looking at how the ‘temporary’ nature of projects, their pre-defined dates and resulting critical paths, influences the capability of project organisations through the (re)creation of patterns of interdependent working.
