HS2 seeks supplier for fire and alarm systems
HS2 Ltd has begun searching for a single supplier for public address, customer information, fire detection and alarm systems for its four major stations in phase one.
A shortlist is expected to be announced in summer 2021 with contract award in early 2022.
Andrew Cubitt, HS2’s Stations and Phase 2 Procurement Director, said in Construction Enquirer, “As well as welcoming millions of passengers every day, our new stations in London and the West Midlands will also help unlock wider local regeneration, new jobs, homes and opportunities for the communities they serve.”

“While our Phase One station contractors will build the four stations separately, in terms of value for money and operational benefits, it does make sense to buy some elements in common,” Cubitt added.
