Eleven companies have been named on Gatwick Airport’s Minor Works framework.
Set up as part of the airport’s five-year expansion plan, the Minor Works framework has been set up to take on projects under the value of £150,000.
Beating 21 other companies vying for a place on the framework, the 11 successful applicants have been split up across three lots.
- Lot 1 (Build): KeyMT, Instalrite and CCI
- Lot 2 (Civils): Dyer and Butler, Knights Brown, Landbuild and Gatwick Construction
- Lot 3 (M&E): Dyer and Butler Electrical, Aura, Spie and BP Installations
In October last year, Gatwick Airport officlas unveiled a new draft masterplan which outlines how it intends to increase its capacity into the early 2030s.
The Minor Works framework comes into effect immediately to “bring efficiency to the way Gatwick procures and delivers the high volume of smaller value projects which still require the expertise associated with working in a 24/7 operational environment”.
Gatwick’s head of capital investment delivery for service portfolio Peter Lederer said: “This new framework is designed to increase our speed of delivery and capital efficiency for low value projects.
“The 24/7 operational nature of the airport means that safely delivering projects requires specific expertise and skills for the scale of tasks. We intend to focus on speed of delivery and cost efficiency for this smaller portfolio and I look forward to working with the appointed contractors.”
The framework will run for a year with the option to review the upper value threshold and extend the length of the framework on an annual basis and add contractors as appropriate.
Gatwick’s capital investment programme is a five-year rolling plan of investment. The current plan highlights £1.11bn of investment in the five years up to 2023.
