We were able to adjust our programme to keep things moving as efficiently as possible, ultimately leading to the successful completion of the project. This required strategic problem-solving and a high degree of adaptability on our part.”
Dave Bamford, Head of Civils & Construction

Project Delivery

The project’s backdrop was a contract with the S&T department and Fenix,
which led to the RSSI Civils Division’s involvement with the civils aspect of the DIRFT Freight Rail Depot project.

Challenges arose in the form of late material deliveries which were linked to
supply chain issues that initially cascaded down through the project. This pushed back the project timeline, potentially impeding the client’s ability to complete the work. However, the team proved adept at navigating this problem. Rather than letting it hinder progress, they adjusted the programme to ensure that other aspects of the project continued unhindered.

This demonstrated their capability to adapt to situations and still deliver high-quality results.

Any issues or problems that arose were dealt with swiftly and without any
negative impact on the project, further evidencing RSSI’s commitment to quality and their client-focused approach.

RSSI’s collaborative efforts in dealing with the delivery problems were well appreciated by Fenix, adding value to the client relationship. The DIRFT Freight Rail Depot project is a prime example of RSSI’s ability to overcome obstacles and deliver successful results on time, even under challenging circumstances.
