Sydney Metro – Victoria Cross Station

Solutions Used for This Case Study

The Challenge

LogiKal was engaged to address to provide scheduling support for Sydney Metro, specifically, Victoria Cross Station. The various challenges that were faced on this work package included a lack of clearly defined interfaces, the disruptive impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the delivery program, and their acceleration measures were not properly assessed. They also played a crucial role in reassessing acceleration measures, recognizing gaps in the initial assessment and refining strategies to optimise efficiency. Furthermore, the client recognised the need to upskill the delivery team(s) to understand the schedule impact.

The Approach

To address these issues, we began with building a strong rapport and trust with the project team, laying the foundation for future collaboration. LogiKal’s SME’s worked with the project team to challenge the delivery contractors on various project methodologies. They effectively managed contractors’ schedules, ensuring coordination and timely task execution, while their expertise in EOT and 17:17 Delay analysis identified and addressed bottlenecks. Their insights into mitigation strategies and assessment of acceleration measures, particularly amidst Covid-19 challenges, were noteworthy.

LogiKal’s Value Add
