our distinctive delivery model The Keltbray delivery model is based around a set of complementary capabilities that together constitute the way we go to work to deliver certainty for our clients. Our progressive approach seeks to break down the barriers to success inherent in traditional contracting models. Clients need to feel confident entrusting their investments with a delivery partner capable of turning vision into reality. They need to be certain the end-result will meet their expectations – and will be completed to the agreed program, budget and specifications.

IN TEGR ATED S EL F DEL IVERY

Inherent in the way we go to work is a different kind of client / delivery partner relationship approach – one based on establishing and maintaining long-term strategic relationships where both parties’ interests are aligned to deliver mutual benefit.

At Keltbray, we work with our expert design engineers to find the right solution, de-risk project delivery and create greater certainty for clients. This expertise is available in the form of consultancy services, knowledgesharing, innovation, advice and practical application at project-level.

This encourages all stakeholders to work together from the earliest engagement as part of an integrated project delivery team. Our strategic relationship management structure ensures all our clients have an executive director level point of ownership and referral.

By refining our approach through digital modelling technologies before we start on site, we can engineer solutions with a high degree of outcome certainty.

By drawing on our specialist in-house delivery businesses and directly employed workforce, we have greater control over quality and productivity. It enables us to be more responsive, rectify issues and interface clashes quicker and achieve greater integration across the key disciplines. This brings an operational focus and intensity to project delivery that is very different to the traditional sub-contracting industry model. Our state-of-the-art technologies, plant and specialist machinery de-risk the delivery process.

Through proactive CRM and early stage collaboration we are better equipped to deploy the full benefits of our operating model. This gives us the opportunity to identify alternative methodologies during the design process – engineering, in partnership with the client and our supply chain, the best possible solution at the most appropriate point across both the temporary and permanent works construction phases.

We bring a manufacturing mindset to a wide variety of challenges by harnessing the benefit of pre-cast components. We have the capability to manufacture offsite at our in-house facilities or through site-adjacent operations. By producing components close to our sites, we can maintain architectural integrity and cut costs without impacting quality. By investing in new processes and technologies, we offer careers that make construction more attractive and help us tackle skills shortages.

The key elements of a project can now be delivered in-house through the Group’s business units. This gives security of supply in a market that is facing a growing skills shortage, and reduces our reliance on external factors that are beyond our control. Our directly employed workforce receives the operational and safety training and accreditation necessary to keep skill sets at the forefront of industry developments. Importantly, knowledge is retained within the Group, which supports productivity enhancements.

1. 3 FEASI BI LI TY STUD I ES

WHRS are able to provide design support during the installation stage of a project. This service involves the assessment of the allocation design, determination of installation methodology, identification of necessary change to allocation design to meet changes in site conditions or construction constraints. Components supplied are matched with a bill of quantity to ensure compliance.

Using our expertise of allocation and construction design, WHRS can support the client in the development of OLE design options to suit track and infrastructure restraints. As many rail projects are multi-discipline, our experience and understanding of each discipline is invaluable to feasibility studies. Our familiarity of the integration of design is essential in ensuring the development of the optimum solution in order to meet, or better, the clients’ expectations.

The safety and quality of installation is managed to ensure safe construction and rail operational compliance. Our design team can also provide a rapid response to field change requests and technical queries issued through the site team to ensure minimal effect on construction progress.

WHRS can also identify planning consent requirements, environmental considerations, and potential land uptake and add value through consideration of international best practice while maintaining the overall requirements of our clients.

1 .4 TECHNI CAL WORK S COPE PRODU CTI ON WHRS can provide technical workscope documentation to allow the engagement of contractors. Our understanding of what is required of a technical workscope is based on our experience in working for various clients. We understand that this documentation is to give clear and concise instructions of the clients’ requirements and the standards and parameters the works need to meet. The documentation should provide clear details as to how the contractor will achieve full compliance. It is recognised that it must provide clear parameters in situations where the standards have not been prescribed. We can assist the client in providing these parameters so that contractors can exhibit a valid design against recognisable standards.

2 main line project experience With our services to Network Rail associated with the Great Western Modernistion Route, we undertook the development of introducing overhead line equipment to the Bristol Temple Meads and East Junction area The outline design proposal was progressed to enable Heritage England and Bristol City Council planning permission as the buildings have ‘listed building’ status due to the historic nature of the structures with their connection to Brunel. We produced BIM compliant 3D models of the existing station infrastructure with a new track layout and overhaed equipment. This allowed imformed descriptions to be made and integration with the existing services and future safe operation of this busy main line station.

2 .1 . G RE AT WE STE RN ROUTE MODE RNI S ATI ON Route Section 6P WHRS were initially contracted through the ABC Consortium, and later via Network Rail direct. The Route Section 6P design encompasses Bristol Parkway Station and interfaces with three other route sections and the new Hitachi Depot. The approval in principle GRIP 4 design commenced in April 2016 and was followed by the award of the GRIP 5 detailed design later that year. WHRSL are responsible for the overhead line and earthing and bonding design and have interfaced with the following projects: ▶ Signaling design performed by Lundy’s and Alstom for Bristol Area Signaling Renewal and Enhancement project, including three new signal gantries ▶ Civil design works performed by BAM and Capita for the Bristol Parkway project, including new station platforms, new line side infrastructure and new embankment works packages ▶ Track designs performed by Aecom for the Bristol Parkway project, including multiple turnout locations and sidings ▶ Co-ordination with a number of high voltage overhead power lines

3.1.1   Expansion of Queens Road Depot

Manchester Metro 750V DC overhead line system

This commission required additional sidings to accommodate new rolling stock, while maintaining the capability within the working depot. In addition, the operational capability within the depot and how this could be retained during the expansion program and in the future, when the additional rolling stock was in operation was considered. This led to some enabling works on the main lines to allow reduced electrical sections during isolations for the construction works and final operation.

3.1.2   The Altrincham Line This commission started as a feasibility study following issues with service disruptions in very hot weather due to sag in the contact wire. The study was to consider the conversion of the system from a fixed termination simple catenary design, to an auto tensioned design. The study was accepted, a business case developed and the design and the upgrades implemented. The Altrincham Line was a development system; it started as 1500V DC, then converted to 25kV AC under British Rail and then reverted to the present 750V DC tram for GMPTE.

Dublin Luas 750V DC overhead line system

The first task of this commission was a study to consider the interface between the proposed two track new branch line servicing the Saggart district of Dublin, with the existing Red Line which connects the city to Tallagh. The proposed junction at Belgard was geographically very challenging as it crossed a main road and was routed near to the main power lines feeding into Dublin from the west. The existing main line track was canted to allow high main line service speeds around a ninety degree bend away from the connection which also presented a signal sighting issue for the new and existing main OLE support poles in the area of the junction. These issues were all resolved in the study, having considered a number of options and risk mitigation.

3.3.1  Yarra Trams, East Preston Depot remodeling

Australia

This commission was for a feasibility study and option selection report to remodel the Yarra Tram East Preston Depot to allow the 33m long E-class Bombardier Transport trams to be stabled and maintained.

M E L B O U R NE

Historically, Preston East depot opening in 1955 is the oldest tram depot in Victoria and a listed site so due consideration was needed with any of the proposed building changes. The depot at the time of the study was general maintenance and a separate body repair area and livery update paint facility. In brief, the new trams required additional and longer tracks within the depot footprint. It also

required a new entry into and out of the facility as the existing entry was across Miller Street and Saint Georges Road. The OLE was to be compatible with the track configuration and meet the rigorous health and safety requirements in an operational depot while being as non-disruptive to the operation of the depot maintaining the existing fleet. Positioning of support structures and termination locations was critical and close coordination was required to maintain the clearance envelope for all vehicles not just the new E class.

3.3.2  Sydney Rail / CityRail, Sydney Rail Lines into Central Station from eastern approaches

Australia

This work was undertaken through New South Wales transport ministry instruction and was to consider the OLE with a number of enhancement projects along the eastern routes to and from Central Station in Sydney.

The OLE studies were undertaken to identify what effects it would have on all disciplines we considered the OLE adjustments would be required and quantify this as part of the commercial business case.

The studies were part of a long term study into passenger flows and commuter usage increases and how these could be managed within the present route footprints. This considered, improved graded cross overs, separation of routes to remove complex routing of trains improving reliability and reducing delays.

Option layouts were designed and included along with bills of quantiles and constructability reports compiled and presented at workshops. This is ongoing and was not concluded at the time

3.3.3  Adelaide Metro, Seaford Lines electrification 2013-14

Australia

This Project was undertaken on behalf of the Government South Australian transport ministry by the main contractor Laing O’Rourke and CH2MHill as designers. The work was to electrify 36 route kilometers through 23 stations and including Adelaide Station.

A DE L A I D E

There was to be further work to electrify the Gawler lines and as such passive provision made to allow for this, though this was deferred to a later date. This is a 25kV AC system to allow the operation of an electric Urban Metro system, replacing the old diesel fleet. The higher 25kVAC voltage system was chosen due to the fact that there is minimal grid transmission availability.

Coordination of the OLE masts with the bridge structure on Onkaparinga River Bridge

The unusual feature with regards to the design was the use of concrete tapered masts to support the OLE. This was chosen due to the saline atmosphere as most of the route runs along the coast. The overall project was multi discipline with an extension at the southern end of the route, which featured the Onkaparinga River Bridge.
