Construction Economics Assignment

Edinburgh Tram Extension

Assignment Brief

This assignment is based on the proposed extension to the Edinburgh Tram system from York Place  through to Newhaven. It is intended to be undertaken in Groups of three, four or five students, although an option for individual studenls is available. Each group should undertake the following three tasks.

Task One:

Estimate the impact of the  projez  on the local  economy  during  the construzion phase. This should focus on the direct, indirez and induced effects of the works on: Gross Domestic Product, Employment, Income, and Impops. Use the Input-Output Tables for Scotland provided for the basic estimate making any adjustments deemed necessary. The negative impacts of the construction including traffic disruption  should be considered. Please state any assumptions made.

Task Two:

Discuss the possible impact on the local economy of the tram extension once it was opened. This should take account of the arguments used in the Updated Business Case for the Tram Extension. ‹Ether approaches may also be used including Dynamic Input-Output Methods and Cost Benefit Analysis.

Task Three:

Look at and analysis the various approaches to procurement for the projez. Conventional procurement v design and build should be assessed in the light ot the failure of the novated design and build approach employed in the previous phase. Should the service diversions be part of the main infrastructure left as a separate Framework Agreement? Should a collaborative contract such as NEC3 be used or should a recourse contract such as FIDIC be employed?

O/" 

A final report should be submiJed along with a slide presentation plus any background information such as spreadsheets.

A Briefing note will be made available sho%Iy to suggest possible approaches to the above tasks.

An appendix should be added to the submission to give delails of the membership of the group, the tasks and subtasks identified. The responsibility of each of the subtasks to each group member should be given. Minutes of Group Meetings should be attached along with a draft programme for the assignment including key mileslones. This information should later be updated and appended to the final report
