HS2 Ltd is looking to appoint a pool of 25-30 experts from different disciplines, including landscape, that influence design outcomes to join its independent design panel. Disciplines will include: design management, procurement, engineering, landscape and environment, planning, service and product design and architecture as well as rail operators, community engagement experts, design commentators, philosophers, champions, thinkers and researchers.
Applications are invited from experts with significant knowledge and passion for the contribution design can make to major infrastructure projects.
The HS2 Design Vision, published on 23 March 2015, aims to drive design excellence in every aspect of HS2 to achieve its social, economic and environmental potential. This design vision will underpin all aspects of design.
The role of the HS2 design panel is to be an independent advisor and critical friend in helping HS2 deliver the design vision. The panel will take a broad approach – overseeing the process through which HS2 is developed, the experience of those impacted by it and how it is designed to function effectively as a transport system for future generations.
This approach is intended to extend the normal focus of design panels and embrace the effective integration of all design disciplines that together deliver the experience for the end users and local communities and others impacted by HS2.
