The Project

The new Euston HS2 terminal, accommodating 11 new high-speed rail connections from London to the Midlands and the North. The scheme also includes new ticket offices and tunnel links for the London Underground, better facilities for buses and taxi ranks and clear interchanges for all transport services, cyclists and pedestrians.

Blue Sky Building were employed by the Arup/Grimshaw design team to provide pre-construction advice for their RIBA 3 design delivery, as well as providing the RIBA 3 Construction programme and Construction Delivery Report. Embedded within the design team at Arup’s Fitzrovia offices, the BSB team provided daily support with both the design development and interfacing with external parties, such as Network Rail, London Underground and other HS2 project teams, to articulate the construction logic and sequencing.
