HS2 Phase 1 is a £27bn railway project connecting London to Birmingham via new, dedicated high speed lines.
The new 220km high speed route incorporates circa 50km of bored tunnels, 20km of viaduct, four new stations, two new depots, 150km of cuttings, embankments, bridges and retaining structures together with all the associated track, signalling, telecommunication and power systems.
The project will require the acquisition of a significant property portfolio and is likely to stimulate new development at key locations.
G&T was appointed in 2012 as part of the Development Partner, to provide the cost and risk services to HS2 Phase 1. Our role has subsequently expanded, through secondment arrangements, to include procurement advice, strategic value management, project controls and support to other facets of the project.
Our team is delivering a number of services including supply chain management, category strategy development, strategic & operational procurement, contract management and governance & assurance. In delivering these services we have successfully market tested strategies, procured goods, services and works including civil engineering, utilities, railway systems, all general business needs as well as technical design, project management and other professional services for the programme.
