HS2 to hold bidders day for subcontractors

Aaron Morby 1 year ago

HS2 is planning a meet the main contractor bidders day ahead of the next tranche of subcontract work tenders to progress civil engineering works and station fit-outs.

To showcase the next stream of package work opportunities due out this summer, HS2 and its main contractors are inviting firms to the event being held in Manchester or online for those unable to attend.

The ‘Meet the Contractor’ event is designed to help businesses understand how to get ‘HS2-ready’ so they are in the best possible position to bid for upcoming work.

Civils & Stations work streams

  • Urban realm (incl. earthworks, minor civils, roads, landscaping, trees)
  • Station fit-out (incl. structural steel, cladding, flooring, ceilings, painting, signage)
  • Drainage works and associated materials (e.g. precast concrete drainage and plastic drainage pipes)
  • Highways works and associated ancillary packages (e.g. surfacing, kerbing / paving, road signs, gantrys, VRS)
  • External works (e.g. landscaping, fencing, drainage, civils, formwork, reinforcement and concrete)
  • General procurement (materials, plant, consumables, innovation, sustainability)
  • Buildings & Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing (MEP) (incl. Precast Panels, cladding, flooring, ceilings)

Ruth Todd, HS2’s chief commercial officer said: “Thousands of UK businesses are already helping to bring the HS2 network to life, and this latest round of contract opportunities opens the door for hundreds more to join them.

“This is a standout opportunity for UK businesses looking to expand their order books and I’d encourage them to register quickly for the chance to discuss what’s on offer.”
