Bids sought for Birmingham Airport expansion

Birmingham International Airport

Birmingham airport is looking for a contractor to build a three storey extension to its existing terminal building.

Works for the terminal extension include refurbishing the current toilet facilities, demolition of existing structures and new groundworks and foundations. A new courtyard space with shops and restaurants will be built, along with an expansion of the baggage hall.

No value has been released for the contract, which will run from 27 January 2019 until 1 September 2020. Successful bidders will enter into an NEC3 contract with the airport.

Birmingham Airport needs to grow to accommodate 27.2M passengers each year by 2030, almost double the 15.3M passengers who used the airport in 2015. A masterplan for the airport’s growth will be released in September.

Although a HS2 station is planned close to the airport, one expert cast doubt on whether a second terminal building would built near the new station, claiming that it wouldn’t happen “in our lifetimes”.

Interested parties have until 17 August to express their interest. Invitations to tender will be sent to successful bidders on 7 January.
