Register for Project 13 / nPlan Hybrid Trust Panel Discussion, 22 November 2023

Melissa Zanocco

The Project 13 Network, in partnership with nPlan, invites you to a hybrid panel discussion event on the topic of TRUST, on 22 November 2023 at 9:00 GMT


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. 

This event will look at the different types of trust – between client and supplier, between suppliers working in an Enterprise and between the client and the public / community – and various techniques and tools to help build it at speed, including leveraging data and information.

We are pleased to announce a stellar line up on the panel, chaired by @Melissa Zanocco, Infrastructure Client Group / Project 13:

  • Beth West, East West Rail
  • @Tony Slater, National Highways 
  • Dev Amratia, nPlan
  • Andy Brown, Anglian Water

Does the UK need to radically overhaul the way that it delivers projects? For example Rail Baltica ( Rail Baltica Official Website | Rail Baltica ) covers a new railway to focus on freight, motorways, airports, ports, resort development and a tunnel to Finland. One organisation is leading this with European Union funding and funding from International Banks. In the UK there would be lots of different organisations with no foreign direct investment, so lots of interfaces and competing priorities.
