Açıklama : The Bosphorus Crossing and the Commuter Rail upgrading project is one of the most complex major infrastructure projects being implemented in the world. The complexity does not only include major challenges of a technical nature but also challenges of more indefinable character like the funding set-up of a 3 billion US$ project originating from different sources, the complex nature of the necessary permissions and approvals from the relevant authorities, the cultural differences in a region where Europe meets Asia and the complexity of the organizations of the stakeholders. This paper will describe the processes and the main philosophies used for managing the Project seen from the perspective of the Employer’s representative, Avrasyaconsult. The paper will furthermore describe the challenges that have to be addressed establishing new organizations and effective procedures when senior staff with many different nationalities and backgrounds have to be brought together in a very limited time period and with limited resources for the purpose of producing top quality Enquiry Documents for the Project. The paper will address the managerial challenges we have been facing because the contract concept is based on the Conditions of Contract for the FIDIC EPC/Turnkey Projects or better known as the “Silver Book”. The paper will describe the inherent problems all organizations of this nature will face during the coming 5 to 10 years if they use the “Silver Book concept” simply because it takes decades to change the mindset of managers and engineers from an Employer’s-design type of concept to a design-build concept. The paper will as conclusions outline the lessons learned so far and what can be done better next time a similar challenge lies ahead of us.
