The Project

HS2 is the biggest rail project in Europe and the most important UK infrastructure investment in a generation. The team at Millcroft came up against strong competition to win a five-year programme of scaffolding works for HS2 in central London.

The scope of works involves design, installation, adaptations and project management of access and safety scaffolding requirements across eight different terminals on the HS2 route. HS2 Central builds on our wide-ranging track record of prestigious rail projects that includes work for HS2 at Euston Station and Colne Valley as well as for Crossrail on the Elizabeth Line, Paddington, and for TfL at Whitechapel Station.

The Solution from Millcroft

Working for HS2’s Main Works Civils Contractor, Skanska Costain STRABAG JV (SCS JV), Millcroft is providing bespoke scaffolding solutions for ventilation shafts, head houses, bridges, abutments and tunnelling works over the five-year contract, which began in early 2022.

Millcroft’s in-house design department is working collaboratively with the client to understand the mission critical programme and safety requirements at each site, and delivering solutions aligned to the needs of construction and engineering teams.

Millcroft has established a dedicated HS2 team for the project, including project management, design and logistics expertise. This enables the company to maintain an agile approach to answering the project’s changing needs as the work progresses, supporting industry-leading health and safety standards for SCS JV.
