London Underground has named its preferred contractor teams for its £350m Future Stations’ Civils and Tunnelling Works framework.

Joint ventures between Morgan Sindall/BeMo and Taylor Woodrow/Bam Nuttall have won places on all three lots covering civils, tunnelling and combined civils and tunnelling.

Hochtief was also successful but only secured a place on the third combined civils and tunnelling lot with the other joint ventures.

The eight-year framework is part of London Underground’s plans to upgrade its stations – including Camden, Elephant and Castle and Paddington.

Work packages will include the construction of new station entrances, ticket halls and platforms including associated tunnelling and shaft works.

Paul Gott, managing director of major projects at Morgan Sindall, said: “Our joint venture has a strong working relationship having already worked together on a number of complex projects in the capital and we are looking forward to deploying this expertise on this framework.”

The Taylor Woodrow Construction and BAM Nuttall joint venture has a long track record having previously worked on the massive Tottenham Court Road and Victoria Tube station revamp revamps.

Morgan Sindall and Austrian tunnelling specialist BeMo previously worked together with Balfour Beatty during the Whitechapel and London Liverpool Station phases of Crossrail.
