HS2 Ltd and a Mace/Dragados team today signed contracts to deliver the high speed rail project’s landmark terminus at London Euston.
The Mace/Dragados joint venture will act as a Construction Partner, working with HS2 Ltd and the station designers, to coordinate the building of the new station, including platforms, concourse and links to London Underground and other rail services.
The appointment completes the roster of major contractors at Euston and marks the end of an exhaustive 19 month procurement process.
Together, the two firms have a track record of delivering complex and demanding infrastructure projects including Battersea Power Station (phase two), Mumbai International Airport Terminal Two and work on delivering the Spanish high speed rail network, including the major new Madrid Atocha and Barcelona Sants stations.
Mace/Dragados will join HS2’s existing early works contractor, a Costain/Skanska joint venture (CSjv), who already have more than 1000 people at work across the capital carrying out work to prepare for the start of construction.
Welcoming the news, HS2 Ltd Chief Executive, Mark Thurston, said: “Mace and Dragados have a strong track record of delivering some of the world’s most challenging and exciting infrastructure projects and we’re delighted that they’re joining the HS2 team as our Construction Partner for Euston.
“Together, we will deliver a new landmark station that will be the London gateway to HS2, transforming the way we travel and setting new standards for design, construction and operation.”
