HS2 has confirmed three joint ventures that will deliver essential early works before the start of the main civil engineering work.
The early works will include archaeology, site clearance and setting up construction compounds plus a host of other roles such as utility diversions, ecology surveys, demolition, ground remediation, watercourse activities, highways realignments, monitoring and instrumentation, structural reinforcements and drainage work.
The three joint ventures appointed are:
Area South – CS JV (Costain Group Plc, Skanska Construction UK Limited)
Area Central – Fusion JV (Morgan Sindall plc, BAM Nuttall Limited, Ferrovial Agroman (UK) Limited)
Area North – LM JV (Laing O’Rourke Construction Limited, J. Murphy & Sons Limited)
Jim Crawford, HS2 Ltd Managing Director – Construction, said that the announcement was an important milestone as the project moves towards the start of construction and the next “challenging” phase of the project.
He said: “Over the coming years, our new partners will deliver the essential preparatory work we need to deliver the main construction programme on time and on budget, as well as creating jobs and training opportunities for thousands of people all along the route from London to the West Midlands and across our UK-wide supply chain.”
