Welcome to the Elevator World News Podcast. This week’s news podcast is sponsored by elevatorbooks.com: www.elevatorbooks.com “PRIZED” LONDON STATION CONTRACTS LET Building.co.uk recently reported that what it calls "the prized deals" for London’s new HS2 Ltd. rail stations at Euston and Old Oak Common have been let to international consultancy/construction company Mace Group and international infrastructure group Balfour Beatty. Their combined value is approximately GBP3 billion (US$3.88 billion), with half of that being the work at Euston. Designed by Grimshaw Architects, this station will have 11 platforms, with other work including expanding the existing underground station and linking the complex to the nearby Euston Square tube station. HS2’s plans for Old Oak Common are "to set standards for design with big, light, open spaces, excellent wayfinding and prominent lifts and escalators, [and] making it easier for passengers with luggage to move around," New Civil Engineer previously reported. Its designs were drawn up by a team led by WSP and architect WilkinsonEyre. The stations will be built under construction management contracts. The Mace team includes Spanish firm Dragados, and Balfour Beatty has teamed with Vinci and transportation-planning consultancy Systra. Demolition work has been ongoing since last fall, and phased openings are planned to begin in 2026.
