About this event

Network Rail Infrastructure Projects is the largest construction delivery entity in UK with around 10,000 projects delivered each year. Regarded as Britain’s biggest builder, delivering 22% of the entire spend on infrastructure in the UK, in the top 10% of project delivery organisations globally and a world leader in the global transport sector.
Often called UK Railway’s Bob the Builder, but admittedly with more complex challenges than your standard Bob the Builder.
Delivering an integrated railway in the environment of increased complexity, coupled with commercial pressures, is difficult at best of times. Ethical issues, timescales, cost, societal expectations, resources, competencies, business needs, legislation and standards appear to be conflicting energies unleashed on project teams.

To address this challenge, Network Rail is embarking on a Systems Integration for Infrastructure Projects Change Programme. They are developing and embedding the Systems Integration capability for application across its Infrastructure Projects organisation, including supporting processes, procedures, tools, guides and training.

The talk explores how this can benefit and be supported by the rest of the railway industry.

Ivan Lucic has acquired international experience through 20 years of delivering railway systems and safety on railway projects in UK and Europe. Most notably, Ivan earned the rail industry’s wide recognition and reputation for pragmatic, delivery oriented assurance on London Underground Upgrade projects. After 10 years of LU Upgrade Programmes, as the Professional head of System Safety, Ivan recently joined Network Rail in a role of Engineering Systems Director within Network Rail Infrastructure Projects leading the System Integration for IP change programme, aimed at building SI capability in readiness for CP6.

Ivan is also a Visiting Professor at City University, teaching a post-graduate module on Systems Safety and Assurance.
