HS2 publishes £1bn of work packages up for grabs



HS2 has published information on over 300 work packages that its construction partners will acquire over the next 18 months.


Robin Lapish, HS2’s supply chain lead said: “Forward planning is absolutely crucial for businesses, so we’ve worked closely with our stations and civils contractors to develop a simple procurement pipeline setting out what we’ll need and when.


“There’s a huge variety of contracts on offer, from scaffolding and landscaping to structural steelworks and platform floors. We want more UK businesses to benefit and encourage those that haven’t already registered as an HS2 supplier to take a look at what’s coming.”


HS2’s procurement pipeline sets out the estimated contract value, procurement start date and location for each package of work, allowing businesses to immediately measure their interest months before the procurement process begins.


Contact information for HS2’s six construction partners is also provided, and speculative conversations are encouraged to help prospective bidders understand the detailed needs..


Subcontract opportunities are posted on CompeteFor approximately two weeks before the procurement process begins.
