CEW’s Exemplar programme is all about improvement, identifying and evidencing good practice and sharing it across the industry.

The new Rail Training Centre of Excellence at Nantgarw forms part of a wider Estates Reconfiguration and Rationalisation strategy and will deliver a training centre for the railway industry to service the South East Wales region and the rail expansion and upgrading programme which represents a potential investment of £10b over the next 10 years.

The project will develop new training facilities to address the current and future needs of learners and improve the post 16 take up of educational and training opportunities, thereby improving the performance of the College and safeguarding its long term viability.

The work comprises the design and construction of the new facility within short timescales and a constrained budget.

The need for the facility to be operational by September 2015 led the Client to require early contractor involvement as part of an integrated project team to better managed risk and value. The project is required to achieve BREEAM Excellent accreditation and falls under new Welsh part L requirements.

The key challenges in this project were:

•Delivering to short timescales
•Managing external funding condition
•Cost certainty
•Offering opportunities to enrich the curriculum at the college

Why should you attend?

The challenges facing the team are common to most projects regardless of scale or sector. This event offers industry professionals the opportunity to hear directly from the team involved and their client and then to apply the lessons they learned to your own projects.

How to Book: This event is free of charge but you must register in advance. To reserve your place please email stating your full contact details and the names of all delegates wishing to attend. Substitution of delegates can be made at any time.
