Arup and Grimshaw land HS2 Euston revamp job

Arup with Grimshaw has been appointed to work on the redevelopment of Euston train station which will become a new London terminus for High Speed 2 (HS2) rail services

Under the £10 million contract, Arup will work up preliminary designs for Euston station’s transformation which form part of a hybrid bill planned to be deposited with parliament by the end of next year.

The £32.7 billion High Speed 2 (HS2) railway project, given the go-ahead by government in January, would see Euston train station expand by up to 16 metres westward to become the service’s new London terminal.

Arup has been tasked with creating a ‘high quality, user-friendly’ terminus and a new London underground ticket office.

HS2 chief executive Alison Munroe said the Arup-led team was chosen for its ‘innovative approaches towards engineering, architectural design and construction logistics’. 

She said: ‘Rebuilding Euston will inevitably cause significant disruption but we are committed to working closely with the London Borough of Camden and the GLA with the intention of agreeing a joint strategy for the Euston area and providing new social housing to replace any that is compulsorily purchased. This will also include engagement with local people, businesses and community representatives.’

The Euston redevelopment project could force the demolition of many buildings including two large commercial structures earmarked for mixed-use redevelopment by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) for Derwent
