At High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd, we are committed to the approach of Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) which supports improved team working, innovation and planning to deliver value for money. It involves an integrated contractor and design team, appointed under an incentivised, two-stage contract.
Stage One involves design development and construction planning, which is aimed at meeting our objectives and which leads to the agreement of a target price.
Stage 2 covers the period of detailed design and construction.
This guidance provides information on how HS2 Ltd intends to approach early contractor involvement in the project and supply chain opportunities.
