Design at HS2
Given the scale and importance of HS2, every design task is critical. Everything that we create is designed and every design discipline is covered in our interpretation of design, which is set out in the HS2 Design Vision.
HS2’s principle objective is ’to design and deliver an integrated system which fulfils the requirements of the Sponsor, Stakeholders and the internal HS2 transport programme.’ This will be fulfilled by embedding the Design Vision into HS2 design delivery strategies, project requirements and design ambitions to ensure quality of design output.
Design leadership is integral to all HS2 activities including procurement, construction, systems and risk management. The independent Design Panel will review and critique outcomes at key stages in the design process.
