In order to assist in delivering HS2’s Euston station, the joint venture is going to kick by presenting packages worth more than £500M.
Also procurement for the building of the main substructure at the station is a subset of this contract and it will involve packages for piling, earthworks, and reinforced concrete.
While a subcontractor is searching by MD JV in order to deliver the main systems and mechanical and electrical and plumbing packages for the station, hundreds of further supply chain opportunities will be available through the packages being tendered.
According to HS2 project client for Euston Andy Swift: “Our work to deliver HS2’s London terminus station at Euston will really ramp up over the next few years. We have been preparing the area for the construction of the new station, which will transform the Euston area, including delivering improved connections with the London Underground.”
He continued: “We encourage businesses big and small to bid for these packages, and we are proud of the role that HS2 is playing in helping boost the UK economy after Covid.”
Since taking over the HS2 station site in 2020, MD JV has already completed piling for the west wall of the station. It is projected that these new contracts will support a peak of 3,000 jobs at HS2’s Euston station.
In accordance with Mace Dragados JV deputy delivery director Paul Leighton: “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.”
“We’re excited to see the wider impacts of our procurement activities too, with opportunities for suppliers across the country helping to feed into the national levelling-up agenda,” added Paul Leighton.
