Fugro has been awarded a £5.2M pre-construction site investigation for HS2’s Chilterns Tunnel and Colne Valley viaduct.

The geoscience specialist will provide ground intelligence to Align JV, the consortium - made up of Bouygues TP, VolkerFitzpatrick, Sir Robert McAlpine and Jacobs - which is responsible for the section C1 civil engineering package.

Work includes rotary holes with depths of up to 100m, 20 boreholes and in situ and cone penetration testing, and will be completed by February next year. 

Fugro HS2 framework director Ian Judge said: “We are delighted to be engaged in the advanced stages of site investigation for HS2 and supporting Align with the delivery of ground data for some of the most challenging tunnel and bridge structures of Phase 1.

“As with our previous HS2 work, Fugro is offering innovative solutions through early involvement with the client to reduce subsurface uncertainty and help the design team manage ground risk”.

The company has provided ground investigation work for HS2 since 2016 and has completed contracts between London and Birmingham.
