The Collaboration Handbook

  • By London Councils

In 2018 a cross-functional team from London Borough of Croydon, Thames Water, SGN, Fluxx and Atkins asked themselves a big question: how can we coordinate the delivery of infrastructure, ultimately reducing the number of highway disruptions?

The answer: by working differently. By thinking big, starting small and proving that it can be done.

The Collaboration Handbook is that team’s story of identifying and piloting a collaborative scheme of works as well as a practical guide for teams in local authorities and utilities. A real-life guide for how to identify, appraise and set-up collaborative schemes of work.

Subject matter expertise and input was provided by London Councils.
