Project Managing the Great Eastern Re-electrification

An extremely complex and challenging project that involves the installation of a modern auto-tensioned overhead line system between London and Chelmsford. In total, 320km of overhead line will be replaced on one of the most economically important routes in the UK.

CPMS has successfully supplied the client with a full project delivery solution; including programme, project delivery, planning, document control, engineering, procurement and commercial management services. It has also successfully discharged the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations duties of Principal Contractor and Principal Designer on behalf of the client.

We took over in 2013 and have successfully recovered this project. The Great Eastern Re-electrification project is now the only electrification project in the UK to hand back money.

This was achieved through adopting a strategically different delivery approach, integrating design, possession management and installation stages. We also re-focused the delivery incentives for sub-suppliers towards major completion milestones, as opposed to short-term delivery goals. Making these changes was instrumental in embedding a safe and high performing delivery culture.

Look at the video below for a summary of how we 'simplified the complex' on this project.


CPMS simplify highly complex and extremely political multi-disciplinary projects. They systematically break down problems, set out strategic and realistic delivery plans and share information every step of the way.
