UK firms encouraged to bid for £500m worth of contracts on offer at HS2’s Euston station site
HS2’s Station Construction Partner for Euston station, a joint venture between Mace and Dragados (MD JV), is ramping up procurement this month, as it starts to offer packages worth over £500 million to help deliver HS2’s brand-new station at Euston. This represents the start of a multi-year programme of procurement to support development and delivery of the HS2 scheme.
The contracts include the procurement for the construction of the main substructure at the station, which will involve packages for piling, earthworks and reinforced concrete. In addition, MD JV is also looking to secure a subcontractor to deliver the main systems and mechanical and electrical and plumbing (MEP) packages for the station.
These Tier 2 contract packages will result in many other contracts flowing through the supply chain, giving opportunities to businesses large and small to participate in delivering HS2. This just one of the areas in which the HS2 project will be providing long-term work for businesses, providing stability and opportunities for growth.
MD JV took over the HS2 station site in 2020 and has already completed piling for the west wall of the station. Hundreds of jobs have already been supported on the project, and it is projected that these new contracts will support the 3,000 jobs that will be filled at peak to construct HS2’s Euston station.
HS2 Minister, Andrew Stephenson said:
“HS2 has never just been about boosting transport – it’s also about driving business, creating long-lasting jobs and Building Back Better from the pandemic.
“This major investment shows we’re delivering on our promises to improve transport across the nation while providing opportunities for business and boosting the economy.”
