The ONTrack Alliance, which is made up of Metrolinx, IO, Kiewit, Alberici, WSP Canada Inc. (WSP), and MASS Electric, has achieved ISO 44001:2017 Collaborative Business Relationships certification. The team’s collaborative Relationship Management System for the Union Station Enhancement Project (USEP) is the first in Canada to meet all the requirements for this international standard.
“ISO 44001 represents a new generation of international standard with a focus on behaviours, organizational culture and management processes, providing a common platform to underpin sustainable business relationships and harness the benefits of collaborative working,” said David Hawkins, Co-Founder Institute for Collaborative Working (ICW).
This international certification was achieved in collaboration with representatives from all organizations involved in the ONTrack Alliance by bringing global subject matter expertise on the certification to Canada.
By achieving this level of certification, ONTrack exceeded performance targets for the Key Result Area of establishing a High Performing Team an essential metric for measuring value and performance of USEP and future projects.
ONTrack Alliance’s flagship status in being an Alliance and the first ISO 44001 certified organization in Canada was verified by ICW on April 28, 2022.
The Union Station Enhancement Project will create the additional infrastructure needed to deliver two-way, all-day service every 15 minutes throughout key segments of the GO rail corridor. The work includes the addition of new platforms and tracks, a new concourse area below the new platforms, and additional elements including stormwater management systems and other building systems.
