VGC is supplying a range of technical and professional staff to HS2 projects.

Our offices in west London and Birmingham make it easy for us to support the HS2 route.

We provide a number of management and technical staff members to Fusion for HS2 phase 1.

Temporary and permanent staff are involved in

  • stakeholder liaison
  • archeology
  • project management
  • engineering.

As well as Birmingham, engineering, environmental and planning experts are also supporting Fusion on enabling works in Aylesbury, Calvert and Brackley. Fusion is a joint venture of Morgan Sindall, Ferrovial and BAM.

We supply Bechtel with a range of staff for HS2 phase 2b between Birmingham and Manchester.

Our people are involved in planning and design. Bechtel is the delivery partner for the £170m HS2 phase two development contract. This is the northern Birmingham – Manchester – Leeds section of High Speed Two. Preparation work, which needs to be done before royal assent can be granted, includes:

  • stakeholder engagement
  • environmental advice and management
  • quality management
  • document control
  • systems engineering
  • risk and cost management.

Our teams understand the challenges faced by stakeholders, clients and contractors in building high speed rail. We pride ourselves on the high calibre of people we provide for our clients. One of our quality managers was commended by their senior manager: “really raised the quality game at HS2”.
