Overcoming Obstacles to find Opportunities in Climate Change

Climate change is one of the world’s toughest problems. On one side is how the drivers of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions – whether they’re policy changes, technological advancements, or shifting access to capital – will affect our economic performance. The second is that, if these drivers aren’t successful in delivering the required level of emission reductions, we’re going to have increasingly erratic weather, which can also negatively affect the economy.

Fugro’s Vulnerability Assessment informs Port of San Francisco’s safe and sustainable Future

Fugro has completed a geotechnical site characterisation, earthquake hazard and geotechnical vulnerability assessment for the Port of San Francisco’s multi-year, multi-billion dollar Waterfront Resilience Program. The work was conducted over a period of 3 years as part of a multi-hazard risk assessment (MHRA) to identify immediate and long-term hazards, such as those associated with earthquakes, flooding and sea-level rise. As the port’s lead geotechnical engineer for future programme phases, Fugro will use the MHRA inputs to develop and design optimal retrofit solutions for the port’s ageing seawall.

Eiffage and Kier receive Notice to proceed for HS2, with their new partners, Ferrovial Agroman and BAM Nuttall


Eiffage and Kier receive Notice to Proceed for HS2, with their new partners, Ferrovial Agroman and BAM Nuttall

The Eiffage Kier joint venture, recently joined by two new partners Ferrovial Agroman and BAM Nuttall, is pleased that, it has received Notice to Proceed (NTP) from HS2 Limited, enabling it to commence the full detailed design and construction of 80km of Phase 1 of the HS2 railway (the route from London – Birmingham).

Throughout construction of the project, the partners will deliver Lots C2 and C3 of the HS2 high-speed railway. This 80km section runs between the Chilterns to Warwickshire and includes 15 viaducts, 5km of green tunnels, 22km of road diversions, 67 overbridges and 30 million cubic metres of excavation. The total value of the section, including the design and development work already completed is £2,269 million. Construction works are expected to start later in the year.

Since the commencement of the design and development phase in 2017, the joint venture has conducted scheme design and some ground investigation works. This includes the creation of our innovative ‘Heave Monitoring Site’ near Warwickshire to assess ground movement. The site has also been used to develop a platform that ties together data from a multitude of independent systems to present integrated, real-time reporting and insights, which will significantly reduce cost, environmental impact and improve the productivity and safety of operations.

Eiffage Kier has trained 300 new entrants to the construction and engineering industry through its Training Hub sponsored by the CITB Construction Skills Fund and delivered by Bucks College Group. The courses are completely free and give people the qualifications to build a successful new future in the world of civil engineering.

The appointment of BAM Nuttall and Ferrovial Agroman will further strengthen the JV (35% Eiffage; 35% Kier; 15% Ferrovial Agroman; 15% BAM Nuttall) and increase the capacity of skilled workers on the central section of the project. Ferrovial Agroman brings 60 years of rail experience, the last 30 of which include delivering high speed rail schemes around the world, including construction of 25% of the Spanish network and maintenance of 55%. Additionally, BAM Nuttall and Ferrovial Agroman offer in-depth working knowledge of the route as they are currently delivering the central section of the HS2 Enabling Works as two thirds of the Fusion joint venture

Andrew Davies, CEO at Kier, said: ‘We are pleased that the Government has confirmed NTP for the HS2 project, allowing us to progress onto the next phase of works in delivering this vital infrastructure project. We have been successfully delivering the design and development phase since 2017 and working with our new partners BAM Nuttall and Ferrovial Agroman alongside Eiffage we will collectively bring invaluable knowledge and expertise throughout delivery to play our part in the most sustainable high-speed railway of its kind.’

Benoît de Ruffray, Chairman and CEO of Eiffage: ‘Eiffage and its partners welcome the UK Government announcement for the new high speed line HS2. We are very proud to contribute to this project which has become possible thanks to the collaborative approach set by HS2 Ltd since 2017. Whatever difficulties countries are currently facing, we stay confident in the fact that we will overcome the crisis and successfully deliver this ambitious project.’

Stephen Fox, Chief Executive, BAM Nuttall said: ‘The Notice to Proceed for HS2 is extremely positive news, particularly at this difficult time for the country. BAM Nuttall is proud to be involved in this transformational scheme and we look forward to bringing our expertise to this key infrastructure project. BAM Nuttall is delighted to be working in collaboration with Eiffage, Kier and Ferrovial and all other HS2 partners to deliver the inspirational vision set out by HS2.’

Karl Goose, Managing Director, Ferrovial Agroman UK & Ireland: “This decision comes at an extremely important time for the UK. It is a fantastic opportunity for us to build on our HS2 enabling works experience and bring our expertise in infrastructure - high speed rail delivery in particular - to deliver further works for this vital scheme. This partnership is a deeply positive and definite step for us, our client, the supply chain and the UK, especially in light of the current global climate.”
