£635m Lee Tunnel River Thames

Work has been successfully completed on the £635m, four-mile long Lee Tunnel project, which will prevent 16 million tonnes of sewage discharging into the River Lee each year from the largest sewer overflow point at Abbey Mills Pumping Station in Stratford.

CEMAR was used to manage administration on the project between the project management team and the principal contractor, MVB. 

Project details:

  • January 2010 to January 2016.
  • NEC3 ECC Option C.
  • Employer: Thames Water.
  • Project Manager: CH2M Hill.
  • Contractor: Morgan Sindall, VINCI Construction Grands Projects and Bachy Soletanche (MVB JV).

CEMAR incorporates the Activity Schedule and an ability to associate quotations and other events and matters, affording powerful management and reporting. 

CEMAR adminstered approximately 5,000 communications under the project, each one NEC compliant, accessible, auditable and consistent.

"We are now in the second year of the largest contract ever awarded in the privatised water industry with CEMAR providing an invaluable tool in its efficient administration. The system is user-friendly and saves time by providing immediate real-time reporting of the status of early warnings, compensation events and other contract matters as they are progressed under this NEC contract.  There has been universal approval by the project team, both by those involved in day-to-day contract administration and also those needing access to the data held within the system."
Mark Sneesby, Project Manager, CH2M HILL

"The CEMAR system has been, and continues to be, an exceptionally effective and efficient tool to proactively manage contract administration for the Project, in accordance with the contractual requirements and obligations, providing optimum visibility of issues for many users to observe."
Francois Pogu, Project Director, MVB.
