24 June 2020

Three bidders – BAM Ferrovial, Laing O’Rourke, and Mace Dragados – have been invited to bid for the £570m contract to build Birmingham Curzon Street station.

The station, which is designed to meet a ‘BREEAM excellent’ standard, will be net zero carbon in operation and will adopt an eco-friendly design and sustainable technologies, including capturing rainwater and sustainable power generation, with over 2,800m2 of solar panels located on platform canopies.

Contracts for the two-stage design and build contract are expected to be awarded next year.

HS2 Ltd’s procurement and commercial director, David Poole said: “Birmingham Curzon Street is absolutely at the heart of the HS2 project and will help transform the city and the economy of the wider region. We are looking for a partner to take on the highly complex construction phase, working with us to deliver this logistical and engineering challenge.

“It’s great to see how much interest there is in the competition and we look forward to working with the successful bidder to deliver, what will be a new low-carbon architectural landmark for Birmingham and the UK.”
