In April 2016, Atkins, as part of a joint venture with CH2M and SENER, was appointed as the Engineering Delivery Partner (EDP) for Phase One of HS2. This role is valued at £250-350 million and will run through to the commissioning of Phase One in 2026. The EDP is currently supporting the evaluation of the tenders for the main works' civils contracts, with construction commencing in 2017 following Royal Assent.

The EDP is required to provide engineering and environmental services to support HS2 Ltd in the coordination, integration and control of engineering and environmental design, development, design assurance, construction, testing and commissioning, and other ancillary services across Civil Engineering, Rail System Engineering, Stations, Depots, Control Systems and Architecture. This includes the provision of project engineering and environmental resources to supplement the HS2 team, including subject matter experts to support technical assurance and design.

Atkins has worked for HS2 Ltd for the past four years. Having won a place on the Professional Services Consultants (PSC) framework for Phase One (London to Birmingham and Staffordshire), in April 2012 we secured the lead engineering role for the 90-kilometres long Country South section of HS2 (from the M25 to the Warwickshire border) and the lead environmental role for the 70-kilometres long Country North section (from the Warwickshire border to Handsacre in Staffordshire).

Atkins has been responsible for preparing Hybrid Bill submissions and for supporting the Hybrid Bill process through the Houses of Commons and Lords Parliamentary Select Committees. Atkins developed and is now implementing the BIM strategy for HS2.
