Heathrow and Gatwick £2.3Bn construction plans take shape

Heathrow and Gatwick £2.3Bn construction plans take shape

Heathrow Airport has all the key players in place for its £1.5Bn Q6 five year construction framework investment programme to get under way next month with the reported appointment of cost specialist Turner & Townsend as sole consultant.

 

Five firms had been shortlisted for each of two roles to oversee costs management and project control services, but Heathrow opted to award the work for both roles to T&T as a single supplier. Others on the shortlists included EC Harris, Aecom, Jacobs and Mott MacDonald.

 

Atkins, Arup and Jacobs are among the engineering consultants that have already been awarded roles under the Q6 framework. Four contactors are poised to start work on the airport’s Q6 programme after being appointed last week as ‘single delivery partners’, a new approach to procurement at Heathrow.

 

Balfour Beatty, Ferrovial, Mace and Morgan Sindall have been awarded contracts ranging in value from £250 million to £375 million for all construction work for five years. The airport and its five terminals have been divided into four areas for these contracts, and each contractor is to work on one of them only.

 

Gatwick Airport this week released plans for a £7Bn second runway and announced that its construction director Derek Hendry would be leaving the company and would not be replaced. The airport has an £800 million five year investment plan getting underway next month, but this could be increased depending on negotiations with airlines.

 

Gatwick is deregulated from April which means it can now negotiate prices and other deals with individual airlines which is likely to have an impact on precisely what baggage handling, lounges and other facilities are provided.
