Mace has been appointed by Siemens Mobility to support the delivery of the facility, which will include approximately 79,800m². of manufacturing, commissioning, warehouse buildings and stabling sidings, as well as a four-storey, 5,000m2² office building.
The development will be located on a 104-acre site close to junction 36 of the M62 motorway and will create up to 700 jobs with a further 250 during the construction period and an additional 1,700 potential UK supply chain roles.
Speaking of the contract (expected to span three and a half years), Colin Harvey, Director for the North at Mace, said: “We are delighted to play a significant role in this innovative project led by Siemens Mobility, which brings together some of the key sectors that are driving the Northern Powerhouse, including manufacturing, industrial development and rail.
“Our appointment to deliver this important northern asset demonstrates our continued growth east of the Pennines and is a testament to the success of previous projects we have undertaken with Siemens, including Green Port Hull.”
William Wilson, CEO for Siemens Mobility Limited, said: “We’re pleased to be working closely with the Mace team as we drive forward our plans to develop an industry-leading rail factory and related facilities in Goole. Mace’s experience and capability will complement our in-house expertise in the successful delivery of major projects.”
The first phase of the manufacturing facilities is expected to open in 2023 and it is anticipated the development will be fully operational in 2025.
