Causeway has announced a partnership with HS2 joint venture Eiffage Kier Ferrovial BAM (EKFB) to help deliver civil engineering works for high-speed rail project.

The partnership will use digital technology to provide the insight required to help EKFB deliver its HS2 contracts on time, on budget and to the highest possible standards.

Causeway’s software solutions will support supply chain management, electronic invoicing and help EKFB maintain transparency into costs and visibility of real-time project performance.

David Lowery, Executive Director, EKFB said: “We want to be known for championing innovation. A key part of our strategy is to make the best use of data integration to provide one source of truth, in real time.

“We work with key industry suppliers and business teams to use data to increase productivity, health, safety and wellbeing on site.

“Our digital strategy helps us to expose real value from data to manage operations, keep costs down and take a proactive approach to issues to drive the overall efficiency.

“Causeway offers the expertise and experience we need to manage an expansive supply chain and monitor the construction of many assets including 15 viaducts, 6.9km of green tunnels, 22km of road diversions, 81 bridges and around 30  million cubic metres of excavation.

“Cost management is essential to our success and Causeway is the partner that has the innovative capabilities to help us deliver our part of Britain’s new low carbon high speed railway.”

According to recent research by Causeway, two thirds of construction professionals believe that digital solutions led to improved decision making, and 61% said that data sourced via a new digital solution improved collaboration, with 55% believing that real-time information was a key benefit of utilising new techniques.

Causeway’s cloud-based e-invoicing, automated cost management, and centralised supply chain management solutions will provide real-time visibility of operational performance providing EKFB with the ability to optimise front line efficiency and maintain control of delivery.

The solution will help reduce EKFB’s carbon footprint through a paperless supplier accreditation process and electronic trading.

James Atkinson, EVP, Causeway said: “As one of the largest rail infrastructure providers in the United Kingdom, EKFB’s decision to appoint Causeway is a testament to our steadfast commitment to developing best-in-class construction software solutions and our proven track record in the market.

“We are delighted to bring our expertise and experience to EKFB and are committed to making the construction of HS2 a success.”
