Carillion confident of building T5 satellite terminal

Contractor Carillion today said it was confident of winning the contract to build a satellite terminal to Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5 (T5).

The £400M T5C, as the satellite terminal will be known, will be built by 2010 as part of airport owner BAA's £9.3bn, 11 year investment plan, subject to the outcome of the forthcomingUKairports regulatory review.

Carillion is one of nine contractors in line to deliver BAA's investment plan for Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports, which includes delivery of Stansted's second runway and the Heathrow East development to replace Terminal 2.

Carillion business services executive director Don Kenny said that although BAA had yet to reveal its preferences for contractors, he was confident of at least winning the project to manage construction and fit-out of T5C.

"Once they [BAA] have cleared the regulatory review they will confirm who has won which projects," said Kenny.

"But we know we are lined up for T5C."

Carillion and its consultant TPS is currently developing the designs for the satellite terminal.

Kenny was speaking inLondonas Carillion revealed its results for the first six months of 2007.

The contractor’s half-year revenue was £1,928.6M, up 12% from £1,717.6M in the first six months of 2006. Pre-tax profit was also up, from £13.9M in the first half of 2006 to £19.5M for the six months ended30 June 2007.
