The preferred bidders for the Construction Partner contracts to build High Speed 2’s two London stations were announced by project promoter HS2 Ltd on February 6.
A joint venture of Mace and Dragados has been selected to undertake the rebuilding of the London Euston terminus, while the Old Oak Common transport hub is to be built by a joint venture of Balfour Beatty Group, Vinci Construction UK, Vinci Construction Grands Projets and Systra.
The construction partners will work with HS2 Ltd and its previously-appointed station designers, Ove Arup and Grimshaw Architects at Euston and WSP UK with Wilkinson Eyre Architects at Old Oak Common. Lendlease is the Master Development Partner for the redevelopment of London Euston station.
‘Euston and Old Oak Common are two of the most important elements of the project, two landmark stations which will help unlock tens of thousands of jobs and new homes across the capital’, said HS2 Ltd Chief Executive Mark Thurston. ‘Together with our Birmingham stations, they will transform the way we travel and set new standards for design, construction and operation.’
The London Euston contract had also attracted bids from the Costain/Skanska and BAM Nuttall/Ferrovial Agroman (UK) joint ventures, while the other bidders for the Old Oak Common contract were Bechtel, Mace /Dragados and BAM Nuttall/Ferrovial Agroman (UK).
