Multi-million pound HS2 contracts secured by Yorkshire construction company
A Yorkshire construction company has announced that it has secured multi-million pound contracts to work on the country’s HS2 project.
Premier Modular, based in Driffield, has received contracts to provide project offices and welfare facilities for 15 sites that form part of the first phase of HS2.
The contracts, agreed by SCS JV, are for sites along the final 26.4km of HS2 to the southern terminus at London Euston.
The facilities will accommodate open plan offices, meeting rooms, break-out spaces, showers, drying room, toilets, first aid room, and canteen.
David Harris, managing director of Premier Modular, commented: “We are delighted to be contributing to this important infrastructure project.
“As a Yorkshire business we know just how critical HS2 is to rail projects in the North and how it will help to rebalance the UK economy.
“Our aim is to provide the best quality office and welfare facilities in the construction sector. We were able to offer building solutions to SCS to suit a wide range of sites, in compliance with Building Regulations Part L and to stringent fire ratings because the facilities will be in use for at least five years.
“On each project we are working to short programmes and on some highly constrained sites near to live railway lines.
“We have invested £12m in our hire fleet in the last 12 months and have expanded our workforce with an additional 100 people in the same period to meet the rising demand for our building services. The scale of the HS2 projects for Premier is a significant factor in that investment.”
John Harrison, section lead construction manager at SCS JV, said: “Premier has developed the most cost-effective building solutions that met our requirements and budget.
“Their team has been very flexible, adapting the designs to our changing needs, and with a strong emphasis on customer care.”
