HS2 Ltd looking to artificial intelligence in next construction phase

Hoping to harness the power of artificial intelligence in its next phase of construction, HS2 Ltd has opened applications for tech start-ups to join its successful Innovation Accelerator programme.

The initiative, now looking to build its fifth cohort, is seeking five candidates to help utilise ground-breaking AI technology, to help drive smooth delivery of design changes across the construction phase of the HS2 programme.

With so many exciting technological innovations in this field, the applications are open to SMEs with innovative technology-driven solutions that could assist in streamlining programme-wide delivery schedules.  Applications close on 30th October, more information on how to apply can be found here.


Jon Kelly, innovation manager at HS2 Ltd said: “Cascading design revisions through a live building programme, such as innovations to reduce embedded carbon or alter any detail of its systems, stations or depots is challenging, especially one on HS2’s scale.

“To help smooth the process, we’re looking for innovative tech start-ups with applications to both design and game plan implementation scenarios that will help strengthen understanding of how the best results can be achieved.”
