Balfour Betty bags £180m Heathrow job

Balfour Betty has won a delivery integrator framework to maintain and upgrade Terminals 1, 2 and 4 at Heathrow Airport.


The firm will take on the role of a programme manager and contractor at different stages of the framework, delivering a number of projects worth between £500,000 and £70m.


Projects will range from structural engineering improvements to multiple asset replacements such as escalators and passenger conveyors, passenger and goods lifts, air conditioning systems, retail areas, CCTV, access and security systems.


According to Balfour Beatty, it would use building information modelling and 4D modelling to deliver the three-year long framework for Heathrow.


The framework could be extended for additional two years, which will be worth around £70m.


Balfour Beatty will utilise its expertise in design, engineering, construction, mechanical and electrical capabilities, and BIM, to deliver the framework in full 4D design specification for Heathrow.


Heathrow revamp project team:

Balfour Beatty: Projects at Terminal 1, 2 and 4

Mace: Terminals 3 and 5 works

Morgan Sindall: Southern area

Ferrovial: Northern area


The new frameworks are expected to generate year-on-year savings on the airport’s capital investment programme.


Steve Marshall, Balfour Beatty Executive Chairman, said: “I am delighted Balfour Beatty has been appointed to Heathrow’s new style of framework contracts. 


“We have worked in partnership with Heathrow for 15 years and we will continue to bring our leading capabilities in areas such as Building Information Modelling and safety to our work at Terminals 1, 2 and 4; and play our part in helping Heathrow maintain its position as a leading travel hub.”
