Mace to provide project management for Brent Cross West station

The Brent Cross West Station development in North London is to be project managed by Mace.

Part of ambitious urban regeneration plans by Barnet Council for the wider Brent Cross area, construction of the new rail station will be linked to the nearby Brent Cross South scheme and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2022.

At Brent Cross West, the international consultancy and construction company 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.

Growth Strategy – Brent Cross.

A team of 30 from Mace 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.

In addition, Mace will be responsible for developing a collaborative working relationship with Network Rail to ensure coordination of different workstreams.

Jason Millett, Mace’s CEO for Consultancy, said: “With the Prime Minister calling for infrastructure to form the backbone of the UK’s economic recovery, flagship schemes like the new Brent Cross West Station are critical to proving our industry is able to deliver.

“Securing this role enhances Mace’s reputation as a leading consultant in the rail sector, adding to a portfolio that includes the new HS2 Euston station, and marks another important win in our efforts to step up and meet the government’s requests.”
