Balfour Beatty has been selected by BAA to work on a major part of the Eastern Campus Development Programme at Heathrow Airport.
The works will realign the taxiways, provide new aircraft stands in the areas to the east of Terminals 1 and 2 and will include part of the complex underground connectivity scheme to link the new satellite to the other terminals. The total value of the works could be in the order of circa £750 million.
Balfour Beatty is currently working on the design, management and construction of the first phase of the Heathrow East Satellite Project, which is scheduled for completion in late 2009 to enable the aircraft stands to be operational in early 2010.
Balfour Beatty has signed a 10-year framework agreement with BAA to assist in delivering its £6.6bn capital programme. This framework covers both complex projects, such as the Heathrow East Satellite Project, and smaller commodity projects, including alterations, refurbishment and building work.
“We are delighted to be continuing our support to BAA on the Eastern Campus Development Programme at Heathrow,” said Balfour Beatty Chief Executive Ian Tyler. “Our track record in delivering capital projects for BAA, including the rail systems element of Terminal 5, along with the strong business relationship forged between us, have been instrumental in completing this important agreement.”
