In accordance with assurances provided to Camden Council, HS2 Ltd are contributing funding to this project. As is stated in HS2 Ltd’s Register of Undertakings and Assurances the Secretary of State will require the nominated undertaker (HS2 Ltd) to make a contribution up to a maximum of £4,100,000 towards the cost of the construction, property costs, fitting out and ongoing running costs of the skills centre. This commitment was secured during the passage of the High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Bill, which received Royal Assent on 23 February 2017.

Overall responsibility for delivery of the skills centre sits with Camden Council (i.e. the contracts are not held by HS2 Ltd).

HS2 Ltd and its relevant contractors are working with Camden Council to ensure that the Construction Skills Centre will deliver skills and employment services that are relevant to HS2 Ltd’s needs.
