Building firms revealed for £430m London Tube upgrade

Building firms revealed for £430m London Tube upgrade

McGinley Support Services is proud to be named in the new line-up of subcontractors that will be used by Transport for London to deliver building work during the London Underground station modernisation programme.

In 2015 tube bosses decided to cut-out main contractors altogether to work directly with specialist subcontractors on the £430m stations upgrade.

London Underground’s in-house Station Works and Improvement Programme team now acts as an internal principal contractor in the hope that working directly with the trade contractors using three consultants to oversee work on the 70-station improvement programme will cut costs by 25%.

Large building project work worth over £2m will be subcontracted out to just seven firms, with 46 other tier 2 and tier 3 contractors prequalified for smaller packages on the SWIP building framework.

The framework agreement is for an initial five years, which could be extended by three more years.

Earlier this year London Underground named its SWIP partners for its preferred civil engineering trade contractors. Large civil engineering project work worth over £2m will be subcontracted out to just seven firms, with 30 other tier 2 and tier 3 contractors prequalified for smaller packages on the SWIP framework.
