No single contract for CTRL St Pancras

PLANS FOR a single contract to cover the refurbishment and extension of St Pancras station for the Channel Tunnel Rail Link have been abandoned.

A special briefing was held by CTRL last week to explain to contractors the proposals to let four contracts for the work. Contractors were said to have shied away from bidding for one overall contract because of risk.

The work, worth around £230M, is due for award in the second half of next year. Tender documents for the original contract 105, then estimated at £150M, were issued in October 1997 before the project went bust in early 1998.

The new work is covered by four contracts. Contract 105, at £125M, includes civils and building works. Contract 108, at £50M, covers refurbishment to the existing station train shed.

Around £40M will be spent on internal station architectural and building fit-out under contract 109 while M&E works worth £40M will be let under contract 139.
