Lee Tunnel Project
The £700 million project involves the construction of a four-mile length of tunnel to prevent sewage discharges into the River Lee from the largest sewer overflow point at Abbey Mills Pumping Station in Stratford, East London. The tunnel will store and then transfer sewage to Beckton STW, which is being expanded to deal with the increased treatment volumes. The project includes five shafts, which are over 95 metres deep.
Systech was commissioned by a large JV international engineering and construction firm to support their commercial team in carrying out a forensic investigation into several of their major subcontractors’ accounts which had incurred large costs towards the latter part of the contract. Systech have been instrumental in assisting the firms’ commercial team in curbing costs, through a change management system and as a result there have been substantial savings, avoiding major disputes and driving costs under budget.
