Crossrail invites bids for tunnelling academy

Crossrail is pressing ahead with plans to build a dedicated tunnelling academy in Ilford, east London.

UK-London: training facilities

Contractors have until the end of the month to prequalify for the 10-month contract to design and build the tunnelling training academy. The job also requires the successful firm to install training equipment.

Bidders will need to demonstrate an annual turnover of at least ВЈ20 million for the previous three financial years.

The academy is expected to train some 1,000 people between now and 2015, providing the skills necessary for work in a variety of tunnelling roles.
