Tunnelling under the Barbican – engaging stakeholders

Summary

Tunnelling under the Barbican raised significant concerns from both the Barbican Centre and residents. The Barbican Centre required assurances that its concert programme would be undisturbed by both the construction and operational railway. And residents were concerned about settlement and building damage. This case study describes the extensive programme of consultation, engagement and briefing, as well as changes to track design and construction methods, which were undertaken to manage these concerns. It will be of interest to major project organisations engaged in tunnelling projects
