Birmingham Airport launches frameworks to support expansion

3126441 birminghamairport1

Birmingham Airport has launched a several frameworks to support delivery of its expansion.

Launching pre-qualification questionnaires for five lots, the airport said it is changing tack to focus on “performance management”.

The frameworks cover civil works (airside and landside), building fabrication (including roofing) and electrical and data works. The two remaining lots cover signage and mechanical works.

“The airport is seeking to put in place a number of frameworks for the delivery of small/ intermediate projects, in support of the delivery of the airport’s capital programme,” says the OJEU tender notice.

“As the airport grows it has become apparent that the current model is unsustainable and this, coupled with a desire to increase the focus on ‘performance management’ is driving the need to procure frameworks.”

Through the frameworks, Birmingham Airport hopes to:

  • Provide a basis for a strong relationship between Birmingham Airport and the supply chain
  • Consolidate the approach to the market and to ensure supply chain resilience
  • Promote innovation and continuous improvement alongside strategic objectives for the airport
  • Deliver value for money in the undertaking of maintenance activities and small / intermediate sized projects through competition and performance management,
  • Meet the requirements of CDM (2015) with regard to the roles of “contractor”, “principal contractor”, “designer” and “principle designer”

The civils framework will be worth £5M and will run for five years.

Last month, WSP secured a five year contract with Birmingham Airport, as part of its 10 year development plan.

WSP’s remit will span buildings as well as airside and landside infrastructure with the option of extending the contract for a further two years.
