Construction Enquirer News £400m worth of subcontract packages to be let over two years

Mace Dragados joint venture has moved onto the Hs2 Euston station terminus site to start its £1.3bn main works contract.

Steps are now underway to begin construction. New welfare accommodation has been erected and social distance procedures put in place.

Piling work for the basement wall of the station will begin in advance of the large scale excavations and substructure works next year.

The progress at Euston will also kick off the search for suppliers for over £400m worth of work over the next two years.

The project team will be looking for future suppliers to the project for packages ranging from water treatment systems through to lifts and escalator systems.

Opportunities will be advertised on CompeteFor web portal by Mace Dragados and their subcontractors.

During the peak construction period at Euston, around 3,000 people will be working on the construction of the station.

HS2 will deliver eleven new 400m long platforms, a new concourse and improved connections to Euston and Euston Square Underground stations.

Laurence Whitbourn, HS2’s Euston Area Client Director, said: “The construction of HS2 is rapidly increasing in pace and the handover of the Euston site to our construction partner Mace Dragados is another important milestone in the programme to build Britain’s new low-carbon, high speed railway.

“The progress in our work comes at a good time as we help support the British economy and construction sector as part of the post-pandemic economic recovery creating new jobs and providing contract opportunities.”
