HS2 enabling works contractors supply chain opportunities available

Date added: 05/12/2017

LM and HS2 have agreed a joint strategy and programme for delivering the Area North Enabling Works.

As contractor for the enabling works, LM will procure the project’s subcontracts, which will be required to deliver the scope of works. The majority of the subcontracts to be awarded are included in the Opportunities Notice Board on CompeteFor.

Planning continues on further scope, and as this is agreed between HS2 and LM, more subcontracts will be added.

LM is committed to delivering the most streamlined qualification process possible and it is tailored for each subcontract requirement.  Potential supply chain should note that they will be required to show commitment to wider benefits than simply programme and cost.  Health, safety and wellbeing are massively important, as are skills, employment and education (SEE), innovation, equality diversity and inclusion (EDI), Supply chain growth, SME’s, fair payment throughout all tiers of the supply chain, environment and collaboration.

Applicants are requested to look at the Opportunities Notice Board, noting the opening dates for opportunities that you are interested in.


Two of Europe’s most prominent and innovative engineering and construction companies – Laing O’Rourke and Murphy – have come together to form LM, a powerful joint venture, ready to support the growing number of major transport infrastructure projects across the UK.

They are market leaders in high-speed rail delivery, tunnelling, bridge construction, civil engineering, offsite manufacturing and digital engineering. The combination of skills and strengths from each company means that LM can offer a fully rounded service that builds on the best of the three organisations and complements the diverse requirements of 21st century major project delivery.

Enquiries can be emailed to the LM Procurement team on

LM’s opportunities are available on their pages on CompeteFor.
