Mace wins New Street deal

Network Rail has chosen Mace to be its delivery partner for the £600 million redevelopment of Birmingham New Street station.

The win is the London firm’s second in a ‘beauty parade’ style procurement process, having bagged the Olympic Delivery Authority’s contract to oversee construction as part of CLM – a CH2M Hill, Laing O’Rourke and Mace joint venture.

Balfour Beatty Management and Carillion missed out on the job, which will see the remodelling of the station as well as the erection of two 30-storey towers at the site.

Construction is due to begin in early 2009 with work scheduled to take four years over two phases, to allow the station to be kept in use at all times.

The first phase of the job, to be finished by 2011, will see the car park at the side of the station cordoned off.

Half of the concourse will be built there to be used as the working station while the existing concourse is revamped, minimising impact on passengers.

The two will then be integrated to form a new concourse more than three times its current size.
