A team of engineering delivery partners have been contracted to play an integral role in the design and construction phases of the £900m HS2 project, set to commence in 2017.

The high-speed rail network will connect London with the Midlands and Northern England, and coincides with the government’s plan to build a Northern Powerhouse. CH2M, Atkins, and Sener will play a key role in the procurement of civil contract, and the technical assurance of the design.

Jim Crawford, the HS2 Construction managing director, commented: “It is vital that we constantly challenge our suppliers to ensure we deliver long-term value for money for the taxpayer, as well as a world class railway for all our passengers, stakeholders and communities along the line.”

The ten-year contract comes after George Osborne announced that the Spring Budget would include a boost in funding for infrastructure in the North. Proposals include a high-speed rail link between Manchester and Leeds, an expansion of the M62, and a new tunnelled road connecting Manchester and Sheffield.

The rebalancing of the UK economy will see a growth in business, research, and technological projects in northern cities. With this comes an increasing demand for short and long-stay accommodation.
