An integrated team delivering programme management functions to ensure Naval Base readiness

Her Majesty’s Naval Base Clyde (Faslane) was identified as the home and berth for the new HMS Astute submarine when launched. The first in its class, the vessel was being constructed at BAE Systems Barrow in Furness facilities.

Stantec was commissioned by Babcock Marine to establish a programme management Office at Faslane to provide a vehicle through which the readiness of the Clyde Naval Base to receive the vessel could be achieved. We created an integrated team with Babcock and MOD staff, facilitating effective programme management, risk management and project delivery, leading the way to improved project delivery. This enabled the Naval Base to demonstrate readiness to the Defence Industry Nuclear Regulator and the wider stakeholder community.

We introduced a new method of working and approach to defining, managing and successfully delivering a wide variety of projects on the Naval Base. Taking a programmatic approach, we defined the various projects and provided rigor and business discipline to ensure project delivery and regulatory compliance. To improve risk management, we clearly defined and developed an understanding of the risks both at project and programme level which enabled the programme management office to intervene and mitigate potential issues in advance and support the final outcome of the programme.

We created a board to oversee the entire programme and provided detailed reporting systems to demonstrate issues and enable direct intervention to resolve delivery risks.
