HS2 - Align JV


HS2 - Align JV

An alliance of tradition and innovation: delivering
transformational infrastructure


Align is a joint venture of three international and privately-owned infrastructure companies: Bouygues Travaux Publics, VolkerFitzpatrick and Sir Robert McAlpine. Individually, our global and UK reputations for delivering high-profile infrastructure projects - safely, on time and in budget - is exceptional. Together, we represent a multi-party delivery entity that is more than capable of overcoming the technical and geographical challenges of HS2.


All three companies are long established, agile businesses that have developed into world-class contractors, thanks to a culture of outstanding innovation and engineering flair. This is supported by a common focus on building relationships of trust, personal commitment and sustainable partnerships.

The Align team historically shares a primary focus on people, from employees and supply chain to the local communities, ensuring that project completion is carried out in a safe, sustainable, fair, and highly collaborative environment. 


The Align partners collectively employ over 20,000 people and have a combined parent group turnover of over £12.5bn. As experienced contractors in the delivery of transport infrastructure, including current high-speed rail projects in France and Hong Kong, they are able to manage complex projects from inception to completion.
