Watch Here: Data & Digital Benchmarking Report Launch Event

By Melissa Zanocco, in News,

Watch the launch of the Data & Digital Benchmarking Report 2023 below to hear a run through of the results of the survey and reflections and case studies from a panel of thought leaders from across the industry.
You can access the Data & Digital Benchmarking Report 2023 here (you will need to be registered on the Project 13 Network).
The Report, produced in collaboration with Mott MacDonald, surveys members of the Infrastructure Client Group Digital Transformation Task Group, including Project 13 Adopters. This year the survey boasts:
More responses than ever before Revised questions to ensure greater relevance for organisations and the industry Suppliers included for the first time Case studies illustrating the findings The report identified four overarching cross-category insights:
Shortage of regular collaboration within and across enterprises. Poor data quality restricting the ability for individuals to consistently make effective data-enabled decisions. Traditional business models restricting the transformation of new processes and ways of working. Lack of focus on data integration causing duplication and information loss at system boundaries. Jodie Lunnon, Mott MacDonald, and @Melissa Zanocco, Project 13, ran through the results of the survey. @Mark Enzer, Chair Digital Transformation Task Group, then chaired a panel consisting of:
Roy Dahl - described how Scottish Water has formed the capital investment Digital Leadership Hub in order to help in achieving its goal of getting to site 50% more quickly.
@Nigel Stroud - explained that Heathrow is running near full capacity and so its focus is on making incremental gains while maintaining smooth business operation with the help of its Digital Asset Delivery Roadmap.
Yiu-Shing Pang - talked about how UK Power Networks has adopted a digitalisation strategy that prioritises resilience, agility and targeted efforts. It employs an Integrated Data Governance System which coordinates a community representing all departments within the organisation, facilitating a two-way dialogue between the users of digital tools and the owners of the digitalisation process.
@Miranda Sharp, Metis Digital - focused on the value of data - we are no longer just talking about the value of the tin that the data sits in but about the exploitation of data assets.
@Anna Bowskill, Allora Infrastructure - reflected on her time supporting the DTTG for the last few years and particularly picked out the thread of needing to use more accessible language around data and digital.

Project 13 Highlights from 2023

By Melissa Zanocco, in News,

Project 13 is a global industry change movement and is managed through a number of governance bodies and platforms that have been working hard throughout the year. This is a summary of some of the highlights for 2023.
Project 13 Network: the knowledge-sharing community for all those interested in delivering infrastructure differently and putting the Project 13 Principles into practice, now has over 4,600 members from across the globe. Help us to make it 5,000 by registering, if you have not already done so, or spreading the word (NB to access some of the links in this article, you will need to be registered on the Network)
Training: the first Project 13 training module, 'Introduction to Project 13', was published in Autumn. You can find out more and access it here.
Events:
Capable Owner series: Collaboration for Innovation Project 13 Governance Code Launch Project 13 Network / nPlan on accelerating the building of TRUST – watch the recording here Partner Initiatives: 
World Economic Forum: In April we celebrated the finale of the World Economic Forum / Engineering & Construction Risk Institute (ECRI) / Project 13  Collaborative Infrastructure Delivery Initiative by sharing some of the insights from the three panel series, over the last four years. There was also a case study from @Tony Slater, National Highways SMP Alliance. Get it Right Initiative (GIRI): GIRI invited @Melissa Zanocco to speak at its Autumn members' meeting. She highlighted how the two initiatives compliment each other to help achieve better outcomes for people and nature. You can read the write up here. Other Project 13 Partner Initiatives include: Conflict Avoidance Pledge, Digital Twin Hub and Engineering Construction Industry Training Board. You can find a list of them at the bottom of the About Project 13 page. Strategy: The Strategy Group, chaired by @Dale Evans, has met three times this year to provide overall direction to Project 13. It is made up of the Chairs of the other governing bodies, plus representatives from our partners.
Adopters: The Project 13 Adopter Community is Co-Chaired by @Steve Hudson and @Melissa Zanocco and has welcomed two new Adopters this year Rolls-Royce Submarines and the New Hospital Programme (and we held a Peer Review Session to act as a critical friend on their strategy to date). A list of the Adopters is available here.
The Adopters started the year doing the Project 13 Maturity Matrix assessment - it is great to measure your own maturity but even better to be able to compare with your peers.
The Adopter Forum has met twice to oversee the strategic direction of the Adopters and has held workshops on:
Maintaining High-Performing Enterprises - looking at joint HS&W strategies across the Enterprise, including the supplier ecosystem. The journey for some organisations has been from trying to get consistent H&S strategies across their own organisation to looking at having something consistent across the supplier ecosystem, with their input. The next step is having shared wellbeing strategies across the Enterprise. Relationship between Capable Owner and Integrator -  how the Project 13 Capable Owner can best interact with the Integrator to achieve optimum outcomes. Two perspectives were shared - an Adopter almost 5 years into their Enterprise and one just at the start.  Commercial models - The Adopters talked through 'wiring diagrams' showing how they have translated the Project 13 Principles into practice in their commercial arrangements, including contracts, governance and incentives.  Joint meeting with the Infrastructure Client Group Digital Transformation Task Group on de-mystifying AI for infrastructure delivery - After explaining exactly what AI is, and is not, in plain English, lots of practical examples of how the ICG members are already using AI were shared with a discussion on the potential for the future. The need to focus on outcomes and people, rather than seeing AI as the end in itself, and the need to use AI responsibly, including ethically, were some of the key messages.
  Suppliers: Earlier this year the Project 13 Supplier Engagement Community, chaired by @Tony Gates, and supported by @Alasdair Reisner, released the results of the Project 13 Supplier Survey 2022. The results of the survey for 2023 will be released in Q1 of 2024.
The Supplier Forum has met 3 times to oversee the strategic direction of the Engagement Community and has held 3 workshops to create the Project 13 Supplier Roadmap that will be published in 2024.
Both Communities come together twice a year. At the workshop in the summer we identified the top characteristics of a Capable Owner and a Capable Supplier
Development Board: chaired by @Dale Evans and supported by @Amy Reed-Gibbs, oversees the Project 13 Pillar Development Groups on Capable Owner, Governance, Integration, Organisation and Digital Transformation and has met four times to offer guidance to the activity of the Groups, including the Capable Owner event and Governance Code mentioned above.
Digital Transformation Pillar / ICG Digital Transformation Task Group: these two groups, chaired by @Mark Enzer, worked together closely on joint outputs in 2023, including the joint AI workshop above:
Data & Digital Principles for Project Success: you can watch the recording of the launch event here. Data & Digital benchmarking survey 2023: the results with be launched in Q1 of 2024. You can watch the launch event in 2022 here. Digital Twin Hub Connected Digital Twins Summit 2023: you can view recordings of the presentations here, including from members of the DTTG. The Project 13 Adopters are invited to the DTTG Peer Review Programme workshops. Highlights included:
Joint workshop with ICG Infrastructure Carbon Task Group 'How can data and digital support in enabling the achievement of Net Zero targets?' The discussion led to the following steps: start with the outcomes in mind, work back to confirm the process needed to achieve it and then identify the information requirements at each step of the process. Government & Industry Interoperability Group (GIIG)'s Management Information Platform with a case study from the Environment Agency. It is becoming clearer that in order to ensure that the right information is getting to the right people at the right time for better decisions to be made, we need to collaborate across the Enterprise / supplier ecosystem - it is not enough just to get our own house in order. It is also critical that data is independent from the technology to ensure interoperability. Apollo Protocol: Jonathan Eyre and Henry Fenby-Taylor took us through the journey they have been on to date, which is all documented in the Digital Twin Hub Apollo Protocol Network. Houses of Parliament Restoration & Renewal Data and Digital team had a Peer Review Session where ICG members act as critical friends, giving feedback on their digital journey.  UK Power Networks' Digitalisation Strategy and Action Plan. The DTTG believes that clients having Enterprise digital transformation strategies are a key lever to enabling the transformation of the industry and this is a perfect example.  East West Railway Company's approach to digital systems. Although there was lots of technical talk it all came back to people and integration. What we want is for everything to be interoperable, and preferably in an automated way, so that people have the right quality data and information that they need, in a timely fashion, to make better decisions. Joint workshop with the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology on data accessibility and data-sharing architecture - If you have a presumption of openness then it changes the culture. It does not mean that the data needs to all be open but if you encourage people to think about why they should NOT share it rather than focusing on why they should - it drives a different approach. You can read the National Highways case study on valuing their data here. ICG Infrastructure Carbon Task Group: Project 13 also holds joint workshops with the Infrastructure Carbon Task Group chaired by Rachel Skinner. Highlights from their programme this year include:
Launch of Concrete Decarbonisation Accelerator involving several of the ICG members and consisting of three streams:
Collaborative alignment – what can be done quickly and for little or no money just through consistency from the clients Pipeline of demand for concrete – understand ICG-led demand for concrete so the supplier ecosystem can invest with confidence Research into game changers that could have big impact but take longer Input to several industry initiatives:
Our Shared Understanding: a circular economy in the built environment – launched at the World Circular Economy Forum Revision of PAS2080 Low Carbon Concrete Routemap Workshops held every 6 weeks:
Resilience workshop: to discuss if our current approach to climate resilience is sufficient with guest speakers Thomas Abdallah, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, New York and Tom Burgoyne, Climate Resilience Demonstrator (CReDo) Circularity workshop: How can a group of economic infrastructure clients accelerate the move to more circular models by working together? With guest speakers Rafe Bertram, Enfield Council Meridian Water, Sara Solis, TULIPS – Green Airports and Christian van Maaren, Excess Materials Exchange Joint workshop with the National Infrastructure Commission on the National Infrastructure Assessment 2 recommendation on Natural Capital.  Joint workshop with National Infrastructure Commission and Digital Transformation Task Group on the National Infrastructure Assessment 2 recommendations:
- For government to publish a full set of outcome based resilience standards for energy, water, digital, and transport services.
- For infrastructure operators to estimate the costs of maintaining government resilience standards in the face of projected climate change to 2050.

Getting it right at the highest level

By Melissa Zanocco, in News,

Project 13 is a global industry-change movement based on a set of Principles. It stays at the principle level so that it can remain widely applicable. The Project 13 Network therefore partners with existing industry initiatives that offer practical tools and assistance to help with implementation of the Principles.
GIRI (Get it Right Initiative)
One of those partner initiatives is GIRI (Get it Right Initiative). GIRI is a group of UK construction industry experts, organisations and businesses actively improving productivity, quality, sustainability and safety in the construction sector by eliminating error.
GIRI invited Melissa Zanocco, Co-chair Project 13 Adopter Community, to speak at its Autumn members' meeting. She highlighted how the two initiatives compliment each other to help achieve better outcomes for people and nature. Below is the write up of her presentation entitled: Getting it right at the highest level. This, along with the other presentations from the event, can be found on the GIRI website here.
“Project 13 is about getting it right at the highest level for the whole built environment and has many synergies with GIRI,” said Melissa Zanocco at GIRI’s members’ meeting. “Our vision is for a built environment whose explicit purpose is to enable people and nature to flourish together for generations.”
Project 13 is one of the three core initiatives of the Infrastructure Client Group, with a community of 4,000 members, and is being adopted by some of the largest infrastructure owners. The focus is on moving from a transactional business model to more collaborative ways of building a sustainable future for the industry, creating infrastructure that delivers better value for all. 
Delivering outcomes through the system of systems
Melissa explained that the initiative is based on the concept of the built environment as a ‘system of systems’ where the links between social and economic infrastructure and the natural world are understood, and the fact that infrastructure is not about building siloed projects, but about adding interventions to the overall system.
The emphasis is on delivering a service, rather than a facility. “We don’t want a hospital, we want healthcare; we don’t want a school, we want education. Project 13 believes getting it right at the highest level is about having better outcomes for people and nature. And nature is important because if you don’t have better outcomes for nature, you won’t have better outcomes for people.”
This extends to all levels. “There’s project outcomes, community-level outcomes, national outcomes, and even global outcomes, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Getting it right at the highest level is being able to see that link from how each project is helping to achieve the UN goals.”
An outcome-focused approach, Melissa explained, considers the system as whole and the best way to achieve the desired outcome. “Can you achieve it by optimising what is already there, or by modifying it? We don’t build something unless we have checked we can’t achieve the outcome in a different way. If we do build, it is understood as an intervention in the overall system rather than, as we have now, standalone, siloed projects.”
Ultimately, she said, getting it right at the highest level is about the performance of infrastructure – did we need to build it, did we build the right thing, and does it do what we want it to do?
Creating the enabling environment
Project 13 creates the enabling environment through which this can be achieved. “If we want to get things right and reduce error, lots of things need to be in place. Project 13 sees part of that as exploiting digital to the full, and that could be across the portfolio, an organisation, or the whole life of assets. Equally, digital unlocks Project 13 because you need the information and data flowing through the enterprise, across organisations.
“Then there’s carbon. You can’t hit net-zero targets if you don’t exploit digital and deliver projects differently. And if you can get these things right, underpinned by people having the right tools, skills, and capabilities, then you will get improved productivity and improved performance of infrastructure.”
Encouraging new mindsets and behaviours
Project 13 is an industry change movement because it requires a new mindset and new behaviours. “The traditional transactional parent-child approach of the industry creates silos and makes it difficult for collaboration to occur. The Project 13 enterprise model, on the other hand, is set up for long-term collaborative relationships. We talk about Capable Owners rather than clients, because we want people to start thinking differently, and asset owners have an interest in the whole life of a project and getting those outcomes for people and nature.”
A Capable Owner should articulate the outcome and the value of the outcome that they want, which is different to just the cost. When they go to market, they procure the capability to achieve that outcome, with an emphasis on innovative solutions.
An example of this is the Anglian Water Strategic Pipeline Alliance. “They didn’t go to market to procure a pipeline, they procured the capability to move water from one area to another. In this way they were able to reduce the pipeline by 25% with corresponding reductions in carbon and cost.”
Project 13 is based on five pillars and their corresponding principles: organisation (creating a collaborative enterprise), governance (of that enterprise), integration (moving away from a transactional construction approach to more of a production system) and the Capable Owner and digital transformation. “How fast you can move depends on the maturity of the latter two,” she explained.
Melissa highlighted the many ways in which Project 13 aligns with and complements GIRI, including creating the culture and working environment to get it right from the start, sharing knowledge, and early stakeholder engagement. “That way there is collective planning that helps avoid waste and rework.”
There are also commercial advantages, she explained. “Project 13 is about making the pie bigger for all stakeholders rather than everyone fighting to make their slice bigger. Stakeholders are incentivised to achieve an outcome, which allows for flexibility in case circumstances change.” It also takes advantage of constantly evolving digital technologies to find better, more efficient ways of working that make that pie bigger.”
Other Project 13 Partner Initiatives include: Conflict Avoidance Pledge, Digital Twin Hub and Engineering Construction Industry Training Board. You can find a list of them at the bottom of the About Project 13 page.

Watch here: Project 13 / nPlan Trust Panel Discussion

By Melissa Zanocco, in News,

Watch the Project 13 Network / nPlan panel discussion on the topic of how to accelerate the building of TRUST. 
ACCESS the recording here – you will need to enter your details.
The transactional model for delivering major infrastructure projects and programmes is broken. It prevents efficient delivery, prohibits innovation and therefore fails to provide the high-performing infrastructure networks that businesses and the public require. Our current processes, systems and relationships have led us to a culture in which we are regularly in conflict with each other and we do not raise issues until it is often too late to mitigate risks appropriately. 
The Project 13 Principles, the Cabinet Office’s Construction Playbook and the Infrastructure & Projects Authority’s Transforming Infrastructure Performance all call for long-term, collaborative relationships.  Trust is a huge component of building collaboration, but people cannot build trust just by saying ‘trust me’ or writing it into a contract. 
@Melissa Zanocco chaired the panel discussion and talked about how a Project 13 Enterprise is set up to help with building trust.
Beth West, CEO East West Rail, talked about the ‘Trust Equation’ and how clients can build trust with their supplier ecosystem – trying to change the parent-child transactional, relationships.
@Tony Slater, Programme Director, National Highways’ Smart Motorways Alliance, talked about building relationships and trust at the lower levels of the supplier ecosystem below what we would traditionally call the Tier 1 and 2s.
Dr @Jas Kalra, Associate Professor of Operations & Project Management, The Manchester Metropolitan University and member of Project 13 Supplier Engagement Community talked about his research into building trust between suppliers and gave examples of it in practice.
Andy Brown, Group Chief Sustainability Officer, Anglian Water Service, described the lessons he has learned from his community engagement work for Anglian Water – building trust with the public and getting their feedback and input to Anglian’s business plan and projects.
Dev Amratia, Co-founder and CEO, nPlan, gave practical examples of how having the right data changes the discussion that can be had between various parties, including between the project and the Board looking for investment or between clients and suppliers building trustworthy relationships more quickly.

Watch Here: Data & Digital Principles for Project Success Launch Event

By Melissa Zanocco, in News,

Watch the launch of the Data & Digital Principles for Project Success below to hear a run through of the Principles, how they were created and thoughts from a panel of thought leaders from across the industry and Government.
You can access the Data & Digital Principles for Project Success here (you will need to be registered on the Project 13 Network).
The Data and Digital Principles for Project Success are intended as core propositions or ‘basic truths’, to be used to guide thinking and behaviour in project delivery. They are intended to sit alongside the Infrastructure & Project’s Authority Principles for Project Success. Designed as short, memorable headlines unpacked by supporting bullets: a quick guide for practitioners on things to get right for any project to succeed. The eight principles were developed following consultation with project professionals across the Infrastructure Client Group and Project 13 Adopter stakeholders and beyond.
@Melissa Zanocco, Infrastructure Client Group, and @Anna Bowskill, Mott MacDonald, introduced the Principles and cross-referenced to other industry initiatives including the Project 13 Principles, the Infrastructure and Projects Authority's Transforming Infrastructure Performance: Roadmap to 2030. and Cabinet Office’s Construction Playbook.
@Mark Enzer, Chair, ICG Digital Transformation Task Group, then chaired a panel consisting of:
@Will Varah, EY, who was previously at the IPA and is one of the instigators of the Principles, having recognised that it would be useful to have data and digital principles to sit alongside the IPA Principles for Project Success.
Ian Gordon, Arup, attended the original workshop to create the Principles and has been on the journey with the ICG Digital Transformation Task Group, having worked at both National Highways and the Houses of Parliament Restoration and Renewal initiative.
@Richard Lennard, Sellafield, who sits on the Infrastructure Client Group Management Board and is the Sponsor for the ICG Digital Transformation Task Group, as well as one of the Early Adopters of Project 13, gave his thoughts on the importance of speaking in plain language that non-digital experts can understand and embrace.
Sonia Zahiroddiny, HS2, spoke from a client’s point of view and her experience of putting the principles in practice across her career at HS2, particularly picking up on the need to focus on outcomes and purpose and the importance of culture and people, including the end-users.
@Jo Ellman-Brown, Infrastructure and Projects Authority, gave a perspective from Government, across projects, life-cycles and sectors, with the aim of transforming the way projects are delivered and how we can learn from the data to not make the same mistakes.

Project 13 is pleased to announce the launch of the Project 13 training module ‘Introduction to Project 13’. The module explains the Principles of Project 13, how it works and how it will change the way major projects are delivered. It is succinct and can be used as an induction for those joining an organisation or Enterprise, as well as for those bidding to join one. It has been created through a collaborative process, led by the Project 13 Supplier Community and the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA), including workshops and feedback sessions.
There is growing recognition that employees need to be continuously up-skilling, or 'new-skilling', in a range of capability areas as the industry evolves. The training therefore sits on a portal on the Supply Chain Sustainability School (SCSS) website alongside other relevant training to create a one-stop shop; for example: similar explainer modules for the Cabinet Office’s Construction Playbook and Infrastructure & Projects Authority’s Transforming Infrastructure Performance. The training is free and users will need to create a free account with the SCSS to access it. The training has been approved for CPD points.
This is the first module in a suite of modules that are being developed. Future modules will provide a deep dive into specific areas within the Project 13 Pillars and Principles, based on learning since the launch in 2018.
Commenting on the launch, Dale Evans, Chair, Project 13 said: “The launch of training is an important step in the evolution of Project 13 and its effort to create a more sustainable future for the construction industry, with a more highly-skilled workforce and infrastructure that represents better value for all. The significant contribution by CECA, the Project 13 Supplier Community and stakeholders from across Project 13 reflects the highly integrated nature of the Project 13 movement”
Tony Gates, Chair, Project 13 Supplier Community, said: “The Project 13 Supplier Community has consistently raised the need for Project 13 training so I am delighted to see the launch today of the first module. Ensuring the training meets the needs of various stakeholders has been a key objective of the group.”
Alasdair Reisner, CEO, CECA, said: “CECA has been pleased to lead this work as it helps with achieving one of CECA’s aims to help its members and the wider industry to meet their future skills needs and achieve better productivity for the sector”
