Arup will produce preliminary designs to transform Euston Station, London, UK, into the terminus for the impending HS2 rail link to Birmingham. A new underground ticket office will be required in addition to other facilities to accommodate the new service.

The award was worth GBP 10M (USD 15.68M). Work will run until the end of 2013.

Alison Munro, HS2 chief executive said, “Our long term vision for Euston Station is to provide the principal rail gateway for high speed rail services from London to the West Midlands, and onto the north-west and north-east of England and Scotland.

“Following a comprehensive selection process, we have awarded this contract to Arup, supported by Grimshaw and Costain, for their innovative approaches towards engineering, architectural design and construction logistics.”
