The project is a key site for HS2 and will see a 30-hectare brownfield site transformed into the nerve centre of the high speed railway line.
A contractor will be selected next Autumn for the job to build a Maintenance Building, Network Integrated Control Centre (NICC) and Cleaners and Drivers Building.
Turkish construction giant Gulermak Agir Sanayi Insaat is battling it out with Vinci/Keltbray; and VolkerFitzpatrick/VolkerRail JVs for the single-stage design and build contract.
Designs for the three separate buildings provide for a high level of controlled, natural lighting to reduce the need for artificial lighting during the daytime.
Solar roof panels, reusing rainwater runoff, sustainable drainage, renewable energy, low carbon materials form part of a package of sustainability measures.
The designs have been produced by HS2’s Engineering Delivery Partnership (EDP).
