Teams comprising Bam Nuttall, Ferrovial and Kier and Balfour Beatty, Morgan Sindall and Vinci are set to be the winners of two of Crossrail’s major station works contracts worth around £625M, NCE understands.
Sources close to the project have said that client Crossrail is expected to make a formal announcement of the winning bids next week.
Bam Nuttall, Ferrovial Agroman and Kier Construction are expected to be revealed as the winners of the estimated £375M C435 contract for Farringdon Station main works while Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering, with Morgan Sindall Group and Vinci Construction Grands Projets will take the likely £250M C512 contract for Whitechapel Station Main Works.
Crossrail would not confirm exact dates for awarding the central London station contracts but said it did expect the Whitechapel and Farringdon contracts to be let before the end of the year with the remaining station contracts – Liverpool Street, Bond Street and Tottenham Court Road – following in 2012.
The total value of the main construction contracts for the six central London Crossrail stations is £1.5bn (see box). Crossrail announced that a Costain/Skanska Construction joint venture had won the £250M Paddington station contract in July.
