Deadline this week for Heathrow expansion consultancy bids

Heathrow Airport has given consultants until the end of this week to register their interest in helping deliver its third runway.

The Airports Commission, chaired by Sir Howard Davies, this summer recommended construction of a third runway at Heathrow to solve an air capacity crisis in the South East.

The government is yet to formally approve the expansion of the Middlesex airport, but now suppliers have been invited to line up for work on the scheme.

Four key areas of experience are sought by Heathrow at this stage:

  • Programme management
  • Information management
  • Construction advice
  • Design and technical advice

A spokesman for the airport said: “The objective of this first package of work is to help us bolster our skill-set to deliver an expanded Heathrow.”

The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday 16 October.

A shortlist of firms will be drawn up before official invitations to tender are issued next month.
