HS2: Back on track with SME opportunities



United Kingdom

HS2 is one of the most challenging and exciting infrastructure projects in Europe with a vision to build more than just a railway and create a legacy for the UK for generations to come.

There will be thousands of opportunities within the HS2 supply chain. These will be created across many business sectors, requiring a wide range of capabilities, suitable for suppliers of all sizes and generated over a number of years.

HS2 Ltd will directly procure and manage a relatively small number of high-value major works contracts, to be delivered by Tier One contractors. Those contractors will, in turn, through their own supply chains, procure and manage a high number of lower-value subcontracts, engaging a much larger and more diverse range of smaller suppliers.

Join FinditinCW’s first webinar, where HS2 will explain why it is important that those businesses understand the process and prepare themselves to be ready for when the opportunities materialise.

Hear from Tier 1 contractor, Balfour Beatty VINCI JV appointed to build the West Midlands section of HS2’s Phase One route, spanning approximately 80km from Long Itchington in Warwickshire to the centre of Birmingham and on to Handsacre in Staffordshire.

You will have the opportunity to ask your questions in a live Q&A.

Book your place below and we will email you with instructions on how to join the webinar.
