Client : HS2
Expanding on our previous work
After we had worked with High Speed Two (HS2) to develop their Design Vision, they challenged us to use its principles to implement an operational programme that would inspire staff and the supply chain – and maximise public value.
Implementing organisational best practice
Placing the Design Vision principles of people, place and time at the heart of our approach, we benchmarked existing design practices in the organisation. We then shaped a design management strategy to activate these principles across HS2. Implementation tools included a Design Handbook, a Public Art Strategy, training events, as well as an independent design panel to review supplier design practices.
Design Vision implemented across HS2 – cross-departmentally, in procurement and when engaging the supply chain.
New processes combined with the Design Handbook and other tools ensure the principles drive HS2’s design strategy and management.
HS2 will be seen as a model of design and innovation for future rail and infrastructure.
