Construction Consortiums Secure £900m for HS2 Phase One

Three construction consortiums have secured up to £900 million worth of contracts for the first phase of HS2. Included in the enabling works deals are archaeological investigations, site clearance and the setting up of construction compounds before the main civil engineering work gets under way. The successful firms are: • Area South – CS JV (Costain Group Plc, Skanska Construction UK Ltd) • Area Central – Fusion JV (Morgan Sindall Plc, BAM Nuttall Ltd, Ferrovial Agroman (UK) Ltd) • Area North – LM JV (Laing O’Rourke Construction Ltd, J Murphy & Sons Ltd) Transport Secretary Chris Grayling also revealed the preferred route for Phase Two of HS2 from Crewe to Manchester, and from the West Midlands to Leeds. On the western section of the scheme, a previously proposed rolling stock depot at Golborne will be relocated to a site north of Crewe, while the approach to Manchester Piccadilly will move 370 metres eastwards with the northern tunnel portal in Ardwick. Furthermore, the Middlewich – Northwich area route will move 800 metres to the west. On the eastern leg, there are plans to move the route to the east of Measham in Leicestershire; to go around instead of tunnel under East Midlands Airport; to amend the alignment of the preferred route as it passes through Long Eaton to reduce severance in the local community and reduce impacts on the highway network and existing rail infrastructure; and to move the alignment of the route from Derbyshire to West Yorkshire. Minister Grayling commented: “HS2 is an ambitious and exciting project and we must seize the opportunity it offers to transform our country for future generations. The route decision I have published today takes us an important step closer to realising the full potential of HS2.” Leeds City Council Leader Judith Blake welcomed the preferred route option as well as plans to redevelop Leeds Station. She said: “This is very welcome news not only to provide further confidence that HS2 will be completed in its entirety but also to offer certainty in that everyone can now know exactly where and how it will come into Leeds. That is hugely important as now planning at all levels can be carried out in an informed way around HS2, what it means and where it will go.”

Interserve Secures £41.4m Contract for Leeds SEMH Schools

Interserve has secured £41.4 million worth of contracts to build new school facilities for children in Leeds with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. Leeds City Council has developed a new strategy to provide specialist SEMH education facilities. New learning centres will replace the existing ‘behavioural, emotional and social difficulties’ (BESD) provision and pupil referral unit (PRU) provision, and will be delivered by Wellspring Academy Trust, the only ‘outstanding’ rated provider of SEMH provision in the north of England. Three construction contracts in different areas of the city have been awarded to Leeds D&B One, a subsidiary of Interserve. Leeds D&B One was set up specifically to build schools for Leeds City Council. Previously, Interserve has worked on Leeds ‘Building Schools for the Future’ scheme. Through Leeds D&B One, Interserve has a contract worth £14.3 million to redevelop the former Merlyn Rees High School site in Belle Isle, located in the south of the city; a £13.0m contract at the former East Leeds Family Learning Centre; and a £14.1m contract to redevelop the Tinshill pupil referral unit in the north of the city. Work on the three new buildings will run concurrently, with the accommodation due to be ready during the 2017/18 academic year. Back in July, when the council, committed to the investment, Cllr Lisa Mulherin, executive member for children and families, said: “This hugely significant investment in world class facilities, support and education for those young people in our city with social, emotional and mental health needs is long overdue. “It will enable more young people’s needs to be met closer to home, and save them from having to travel out of the city to access the learning environment they need. This new specialist provision will radically improve the learning, support and outcomes for some of the city’s most vulnerable children, replacing old, unsuitable buildings with specially designed learning places, which are fit for the future.”

TP Bennett Submits £60m Plan Retail and Leisure Plan for Rochdale

Architect TP Bennett has put forward plans for a £60 million retail and leisure scheme to be built in Rochdale for developer Genr8. The 25 unit Rochdale Riverside district will have a gross internal floor area of more than 60,000m2. Genr8 is developing the scheme with Kajima in conjunction with Rochdale Borough Council. High street retailers M&S and Next have signed up to the project, with Reel Cinema putting forward plans for a six screen cinema. Richard Farnell, leader of Rochdale Borough Council, commented: “This is a hugely important milestone for the regeneration of our town centre. The new stores and high street names will attract new shoppers back to town and give a massive boost to all retailers. It’s a unique mix of retail and leisure which will create 1,000 new jobs and boost the local economy by £17m. “This is a red letter day for Rochdale and yet more evidence in the turnaround of the fortunes of our town centre. “Rochdale Riverside is an important part of our £250m regeneration programme, which has transformed Rochdale beyond all recognition since 2010.” It is expected that the application will be considered early next year. Demolition works have already begun and construction works are set to get underway by late summer next year. Earlier this year, TP Bennett strengthened its commitment to Manchester after taking a lease on 3,000 sq ft of office space in Manchester following significant growth. The practice, which also specialises in interiors and planning, has taken warehouse office space in the Royal Mills development, Ancoats Urban Village. TP Bennett, which has grown across its Manchester and London offices by 34 per cent in the last 12 months, has designed its new interior to maintain a flexibility to accommodate future growth. With an open plan layout and a variety of collaborative working areas, the style echoes its London headquarters.

Tynecastle Redevelopment Work Gets Under Way

Building work has started on Hearts’ main stand with the demolition of the existing stand at Tynecastle. The club shop, old stadium offices and an adult education centre will be torn down to create space for the new £12 million scheme. The City of Edinburgh Council approved planning permission for the work last month and the club has spent the last few weeks clearing the site. Workmen have now moved in to start taking down the old club office building for the initial phase of the redevelopment. The existing, 102 year old, dilapidated stand will be replaced by the new stand and will house 7,290 seats that will increase stadium capacity to more than 20,000. There will be hospitality lounges, new offices, a roof terrace, state of the art dressing rooms, a directors’ suite, media facilities, ticket kiosks and a new Tynecastle Nursery School. The architect behind the design is Jim Clydesdale and he will also be responsible for the other three stands at Tynecastle. The whole project is set to be complete by September next year and will complete the rebuilding of the ground. While the work is completed, Hearts’ stadium shop and offices have been relocated to the back of the Wheatfield Stand, where they will be situated throughout the whole of the building work. The plan is for the new stand to be constructed around the current one, the inside of which will then be excavated next summer. The Tynecastle Stadium redevelopment plan was approved by councillors last month. Hearts owner Ann Budge said last month that she expects the current 17,400 capacity to be unaffected while the work takes place. “Inevitably there will be a bit of disruption because it is a big building programme but we absolutely keep that to a minimum and the supporters who still want to come and sit in the old stand will do so,” she added.

Yonder Consulting to Separate Building Physics Engineering Team

The building physics business will now be run as a completely separate entity, with its 12 strong team being known simply as Yonder and moving to Leeds from Harrogate before the end of this year after an amicable separation. The building physics experts of Yonder work with leading construction professionals, including project managers, architects and contractors, throughout the UK. It will deliver a great amount of sustainability among other benefits to their buildings, including reduced consumption costs, less running expenses – through factors such as minimised energy consumption – better indoor environments and lower carbon emissions. The Yonder team: contributes to buildings’ passive design – their use of natural sources like the sun for heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting; leads on their active design, involving deploying non-natural elements, such as boilers and electric lighting, for these purposes; and defines constructions’ ideal renewable energy sources. Rob Gill, Managing Director at Yonder who founded the business four years ago, explained the reasons for the separation: “Building physics engineering is a specialist discipline in its own right and independence will allow us to concentrate fully on our field of expertise. Mechanical and electrical engineering is concerned with building services, whereas we focus on the whole construction. “Separating will enable us to ensure passive design is rightfully prominent in a project, which maximises benefits for clients. It will also allow us to invest in our own specialism and deliver unbeatable customer care and service.” The building physics team at Yonder has advised on hundreds of constructions in both the private and public sectors throughout the UK. These have included commercial, distribution, education, healthcare, industrial, leisure and retail buildings. A number of these developments have earned prestigious accolades, including Leeds’ First Direct Arena, which won the Royal Institution of British Architects’ Yorkshire Award last year after Yonder was the project’s energy assessor for client BAM Construction.

Highways England Considering Changes to £7bn Routes to Market Framework

Highways England is mulling several changes to its work procurement methods as part of its £7 billion Routes to Market framework. Jim O’Sullivan, Chief Executive of Highways England, said that the body was in the process of consulting with contractors regarding the structure of the framework and that several changes were being considered. Among the potential changes is the procurement of major road projects away from the framework. O’Sullivan said that the scale and size of schemes such as the A303 tunnel and Lower Thames Crossing made it a clear step for the organisation to take. He also confirmed that there is a high possibility of mini-bids being scrapped and replaced with a system of allocation based on the successful delivery of previous jobs. O’Sullivan explained: “If you deliver the last job to budget, to quality and to time, then we will try to roll it on to the next job. “If you are in a particular lot, then we will simply allocate the next job to the most successful contractor or team.” He also said that Highways England was looking at new methods of dividing the Routes to Market framework and was eager to add more flexibility to the lots. Its existing Collaborative Delivery Framework is divided lots organised by project value, with the smallest covering work up to and including £25 million and the highest comprising projects between £100 million and £450 million. Mr O’Sullivan said the organisation was reviewing whether lots based strictly on project values was the most efficient way to move forward. “We recognise that it is not a straight line correlation between complexity and size; a smaller complex project may find itself in the wrong lot if you are working on the basis of capital value,” Mr O’Sullivan said. He added that there had also been situations on the current framework where five £20m projects, which could have been procured as a £100 million job, were instead divided between contractors across different lots.
