Contracts worth over 500 million GBP (596.3m euros | 679.86m USD) will be up for grabs to help deliver the brand-new London-based HS2 station and herald the start of a multi-year procurement programme to support development and delivery of the HS2 scheme.

Tier 2 contracts on offer include the procurement for the construction of the main substructure at the station, which will involve packages for piling, earthworks and reinforced concrete.

The HS2 partner is also looking for a subcontractor to deliver the main systems and mechanical and electrical and plumbing packages for Euston station.

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’s projected that these new contracts will support the 3,000 jobs that will be filled at peak to construct HS2’s Euston station.

Paul Leighton, Deputy Delivery Director, Mace Dragados JV, said:

“Given the scale of the task at Euston, we’re in no doubt as to how important our supply chain is to our success.

“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.”

MD JV will publish the majority of its Euston station procurement opportunities online at  www.competefor.com/macedragados.
