Mace, the international consultancy and construction company, has been selected to provide project management services for the Brent Cross West Station development in North London.
The announcement comes as work continues during the August Bank Holiday with the completion of the north end sidings. Signals and overhead lines are going live over the weekend and the new track is being tested. This will enable construction on the railway station to start this autumn.
The project – being brought forward by Barnet Council – is part of ambitious urban regeneration plans for the wider Brent Cross area. It involves the construction of a new rail station that will be linked to the nearby Brent Cross South scheme and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2022.
At Brent Cross West, Mace has been brought in to manage a broad scope of activities associated with the station’s development, including: the relocation of existing rail operations offices and welfare facilities; the realignment of existing railway and creation of railway sidings; and the construction of the new five-platform railway station at Brent Cross West. As project manager for the scheme, Mace will also be responsible for overseeing all planning, integration and construction; implementing of a programme controls function; securing and issuing all notices and approvals; assurance of contractor performance; and commercial and contract management.
A team of 30 Mace people will deliver the services, working hand-in-hand with Barnet Council and other key partners, including the main contractor leading on the station’s construction, VolkerFitzpatrick.
