VINCI Construction Grands Projets
in the British Isles
Construction Grands Projets first steps in the UK were made in
1992 with the construction of the second bridge on the Severn
Estuary, a cable-stayed bridge connecting England and Wales. Its
branch in London was established to ensure the development of
local long-term partnerships based in the UK. This has permitted
us to participate in the construction of three major sections of
the Channel Tunnel Rail Link: CTRL 410 (North Downs Tunnel);
CTRL 350 (Medway River Crossing); and CTRL 310 (West Thames),
including the in-house design of Thurrock, Rainham and Aveley
viaducts. VINCI Construction Grands Projets also constructed all
the seven rail and road tunnels of the new Terminal 5 of
Heathrow Airport in London.
integrated construction-concessions business model won VINCI
Construction Grands Projets the Newport Southern Distributor
Road design and construction contract, which included the
award-winning City bridge crossing the River Usk (Green Apple
Award/Structural Steel Design Award).
Bridge: At the end of 2008, we completed the design and
construction of the world’s second longest push-launched bridge
(the Clackmannanshire Bridge in Scotland); and in May 2010, the
widening of the M1 near Nottingham (junction 25 to 28). Our
teams are currently working on the Lee Tunnel Project in London,
on the Liverpool Street and Whitechapel station tunnels for
Crossrail C510 and on the advanced works for Tottenham Court
Road Crossrail station (C421).
Our prime goal
is the design and construction of major infrastructure and
complicated structures, working in partnership with our British
and Irish colleagues.
