High profile architects behind HS2 station bids revealed

HS2 Euston

Britain’s biggest and highest profile architects are behind the shortlisted engineering consultants for High Speed 2’s (HS2) stations packages.

New Civil Engineer revealed the names of the shortlisted consultants for the stations bid earlier this month, with Arup and WSP topping the list. Now the architects behind the bids are being named.

The four stations are: Euston Station in central London, Old Oak Common Station in west London, Birmingham Curzon Street Station and Birmingham Interchange.

For the southern stations, Arup has teamed up with Grimshaw Architects. But for the Birmingham stations the consultant has teamed with Wilkinson Eyre – designer of Crossrail’s Liverpool Street Station, Stratford Regional Station and HS2 Ltd’s current architect for Euston station.

Wilkinson Eyre has teamed up with WSP for its southern station bids, but WSP is working with Grimshaw and Leslie Jones Architecture for the Birmingham stations.

Mott MacDonald has teamed with transport specalist architect Weston Williamson & Partners and Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners for Birmingham Curzon Street and Old Oak Common.

Arcadis has teamed with Foster & Partners for Euston and Birmingham Interchange.

Jacobs has refused to reveal its architect, saying only that it is working with BuroHappold Engineering and Idom for its shortlisted stations.
