The A229 Running Horse Turbo roundabout, Maidstone - Virtual AttendanceBOOK NOW
03/09/2024 18:30:00 - 03/09/2024 20:00:00

 

When: 3 September 2024, 18:30 - 20:00
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Chris Koningen Fd Eng, Design and Delivery Principal engineer/Team Leader, Kent County Council

In April/May 2024, Kent County Council converted the Running House Roundabout, Maidstone to an innovative layout based on the Dutch turbo roundabout. This builds on the design previously implemented at Flanders Roundabout, Ashford in October 2019, albeit on a much larger scale. Running Horse Roundabout was one of the highest crash sites in the county in terms of personal injury incidents despite following standard design principals, so a radical approach was needed.

Chris Koningen, Principal Design and Project Manager for the scheme, introduced the turbo roundabout concept to Kent from the Netherlands and adapted the design to be suitable for use in the UK, whilst considering the availability of materials. The road markings and sign symbols were his own design, as the existing UK regulations and design manuals do not include the required layouts.

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first junction that uses virtual lane separation in this way, and if successful it is hoped that it will become a familiar sight on British roads, as it is in the Netherlands.

The presentation will cover the background to why a new layout was needed, data collection to inform the causation factors of the incidents, design, material choice, pre-construction contractor involvement, installation and post-construction monitoring.

er: Alia Gharaibeh, Regional Director Middle East, HELP Logistics

Thames Valley Group are privileged to have secured Alia Garaibeh, Regional Director for the Middle East how the HELP Logistics team, part of the Swiss Based Kuhne Foundation, is contributing  to the thought leadership that is shaping future humanitarian supply chains.



Humanitarian actors today face a multitude of operational and environmental risks that can result in supply chain disruptions. Building resilient supply chains is key to ensuring the availability of life-saving commodities and begins with understanding the operating environment and the contextual factors that make them susceptible to disruptions. 

In this talk, Alia Gharaibeh introduces the tools and methodologies developed by HELP Logistics for the benefit of the humanitarian community. Including the Supply Chain Resilience (SCR) tool, an approach to simulate potential disruptions to humanitarian supply chains that can empower organizations to enhance supply chain resilience proactively. 

These insights inform the creation of data-driven supply strategies that offer a roadmap for organizations to mitigate risks, reduce disruptions, and ensure aid reaches vulnerable populations, even in the most challenging environments.



HELP Logistics is a subsidiary company of the Kühne Foundation. Since 2016, HELP Logistics has established four regional offices; Singapore (Asia), Amman (Middle East), Nairobi (East Africa) and Dakar (West Africa). From these centres, dedicated supply chain and logistics experts partner with a range of government, academic and professional institutions.

Alia Gharaibeh is a seasoned professional with a master’s degree in industrial engineering and over 15 years of managerial experience in leading regional and international organisations in the Middle East. She is the first SCM ITC-certified Supply Chain Manager in Jordan, a prestigious certification granted by the International Trade Centre and the United Nations.

With her extensive background in shipping and retail, Ms Gharaibeh founded her own business consultancy company, providing valuable advice and training to Jordanian SMEs. She has also played a pivotal role in implementing national capacity-building projects for USAID. As a lecturer at the German Jordanian University (GJU), she mentored aspiring logistics professionals and imparted knowledge on supply chain, logistics, and operations management.


Ms Gharaibeh's exemplary leadership skills have been recognised through invitations to prestigious fellowships, including the Arab American Business, John Smith Rule of Law (UK), Common Purpose (UK), and Vital Voices (US). Over the past eight years, she has actively contributed to the humanitarian sector through technical assistance and capacity building initiatives. As the Middle East Regional Director of HELP Logistics, she continues to advance supply chain management in the region significantly.

Workshop - The logistics of constructing a new machine producing light 10 billion times brighter than the sun.BOOK NOW
18/10/2024 10:00:00 - 18/10/2024 15:00:00

 

When: 18 October 2024, 10:00 - 15:00
Where: Diamond House, Main gate. Harwell Science & Innovation Campus, Fermi Ave, Didcot, OX11 0DE, UK 
Speaker: Mick Conmy FCILT, Diamond-II Logistics Manager


Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 36 and attendees will be vetted by Diamond Light Source prior to confirmation.

The UK’s largest particle accelerator is undergoing a upgrade programme starting next year and running through to 2029, it is the largest ever investment in UK science. It will involve construction of a new, even brighter synchrotron machine, which is essentially a giant microscope, producing light 10 billion times brighter than the sun.  The light is directed, via beamlines, into laboratories where research takes place in virtually all fields of science from health to energy.


To underpin this a logistics plan is currently being designed that creates a network of local and remote storage, kitting and assembly operations from scratch. 

A project team will handle the receipt, assembly and despatch of 17,000 SKUs of largely bespoke scientific instrumentation. Much of this is both very heavy and extremely sensitive. At the same time there will be a complex and overlapping extraction and removal process. Metal recycling will also form a big part of this project. 




Diamond Light Source, along with CILT Defence Forum and Central Southern Region will run a workshop to scope the art of the possible and look for innovative movement and temporary storage solutions for this project. Defence heavy-lift and expeditionary storage experts are already engaged in this, but wider industry experts are sought to workshop ideas about the most appropriate strategy to apply to this unique endeavour. 



After an initial briefing, there will be a descriptive tour of the facility giving unprecedented access to the current particle accelerator.  The workshop will then discuss concepts and exchange ideas about how to approach the programme.  The workshop will be held in the Diamond Light Source boardroom.

Transforming traditional project logistics for green energy and sustainable-focused construction projects. - Physical AttendanceBOOK NOW
13/11/2024 18:00:00 - 13/11/2024 20:00:00

 

When: 13 November 2024, 18:30 - 20:00
Where: The Greyfriars Centre, Friar Street, Reading, Berkshire, RG1 1EH
Speaker: Scott Rogers, Veteran & Ex Senior Logistics Manager at Worley



The Thames Valley Group are delighted to have secured a presentation from Scott Rogers an RAF veteran, who until May 2024 was Senior Logistics Manager at a global professional services company of energy, chemicals and resources experts headquartered in Australia.

As a Logistics Subject Matter Expert, Scott led the design, development and delivery of the logistics solutions for green energy and sustainability-related construction projects in the UK and Europe. This ranged from initial bid development and concept definition through to detailed engineering design and construction execution.

Notable highlights included implementing a new approach to project logistics through an organic 4PL model. Hear how fresh strategy and execution plans were developed for all project logistics services and cargo, from first to final mile delivery, including interface management and customs clearance requirements. Understand how an operating framework including budgets, safety, quality and risk management, plus revised operating processes and procedures was built, leading to tenders with selected global 3PLs and freight forwarders for £50M+ of logistics services, and subsequent ownership of operational and contractual management. 

See how close collaboration with global colleagues within Supply Chain, Engineering, Construction and project controls was essential so that Logistics informed, influenced and shaped project design and execution. Get an appreciation of how external bodies including 3PLs, heavy lift providers, suppliers, subcontractors, and government agencies, both national and international also need to be included. 

Scott’s vast experience that made him the right person for this enormous challenge includes conceptual work leading the RAF’s Logistics capability development, operational delivery as Head of the Air Transport Operations Centre in Afghanistan for over a year, as well as commercial leadership roles in areas as diverse as Amazon Operations, operations management in the luxury retail sector and Sotheby’s (the fine art auction house) end-to-end logistics service delivery including inbound logistics, customs clearance, inventory management, travelling exhibitions, and order fulfilment (including export licensing). We will see how all of these contributed to his most recent successes in the sustainability sector.

As usual with Thames Valley Group events, afterwards attendees are warmly invited to continue the evening with informal discussion and networking at the pub opposite the venue.
