A Balfour Beatty Vinci joint venture was shortlisted at the end of last year as one of the enabling works contractors in the running to win a share of HS2’s £900m preparatory works.

He joined joined Balfour in 1990 as a graduate and since worked his way up the ranks holding senior positions, three years as project director for the Folkestone section of the high speed Channel Tunnel Rail Link.

More recently he spent seven years leading rail businesses delivering significant projects in both the UK and overseas, and most recently secured a pipeline of new major projects for Balfour Beatty’s Highways portfolio.

HS2’s three packages of enabling works will cover utility diversions, ecology surveys, site clearance, demolition, ground remediation, water course activities, highways realignments, monitoring and instrumentation, structural reinforcements and drainage.

Balfour Beatty/Vinci will be invited to tender for the enabling works in the spring, along with the other shortlisted companies.

The successful contractors will be revealed later this year with the enabling work expected to start in 2017 ahead of the start of major civil engineering works on the first stage of the project between London and the West Midlands.
