Arup, Atkins and Jacobs win Gatwick framework

Gatwick north terminal

Arup, Atkins and Jacobs have won places on a new five-year planning framework for Gatwick Airport, ahead of a £240M investment in the airport over the next year.

The firms will work on capacity assessments and look at how it can grow from its existing infrastructure. Work will include passenger and aircraft modelling and looking at layout and facility requirements.

The move is part of the airport’s £2.5bn transformation programme, which is looking for “clever use” of infrastructure, technology and efficient processes to enable growth.

Gatwick’s chief planning officer Tim Norwood, who joined the airport after securing planning for Hinkley Point C, said: “The award of this framework sends a clear message that Gatwick is committed to continued growth, despite the constraints of the single runway and our existing infrastructure. We will always look for clever ways to improve passenger processes while being focussed on what people want, and it’s important to work with specialists in this field to understand some of the critical flows of the airport”.
