Kier bags works on London City Airport expansion

3119235 bam london city airport

Kier Construction has won works on the £480M London City Airport expansion.

The firm has won the construction contract for the temporary passport control, immigration and customs facility, and the goods inwards facility.

Dyer and Butler has also won the airfield drainage works in the latest round of contract awards.

A London City Airport spokesperson said: “Procurement for the City Airport Development Programme continues to move at a pace, with over 30 contractors and sub-contractors now working on the £480 million project, which when it reaches its peak will create in excess of 500 construction jobs.

“The airport has awarded the buildings contract for the temporary passport control, immigration and customs facility, and the Goods Inwards Facility, to Kier Construction Limited. Completion of these works will enable work to start on the reconfiguration of the main terminal and the east and west terminal extensions”

Other contracts in relation to piling works are either still in the prequalification stage, out to tender, or in the final stages of evaluation.

Bam Nuttall is already building an £85M, 75,000 m² concrete deck extension as part of the £480M capacity boost.

The airport’s revamp will involve the construction of seven new aircraft stands, a parallel taxiway, a 40,000m² terminal extension, and the UK’s first digital air traffic control tower, which will be in use by 2019.

Enabling works for the airport’s development have started with delivery partner Bechtel. Completion is scheduled for 2021.
