Procurement begins for Euston station work contracts

HS2 Euston station

MD joint venture comprising Mace and Dragados has started the procurement process for HS2 Euston station with offer packages worth over GBP 500 million (EUR 597 million). 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.

“We’re looking for our suppliers to not only provide us with skilled team members that will help us grow in size and capability, but to bring ideas and innovations that will help us set standards in the industry,” Paul Leighton, the Deputy Delivery Director, Mace Dragados JV, said.

The 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 Euston station.

The project covers the improvement of the existing station and the construction of the new high speed railway hub. The station will benefit 11 new 400m long platforms, a new concourse and improved connections to Euston and Euston Square Underground stations.

The brand-new terminus station in Euston, London, is being built by Mace Dragados Joint Venture, HS2’s appointed Construction Partner.

In 2021, the joint venture was also appointed as Construction Partner for Birmingham’s state-of-the-art HS2 Curzon Street Station.
