Up to £500M of construction work is up for grabs on Manchester Airport’s expansion project.entre invited bids on the Terminal Two phase of its 10-year transformation programme.
The North West transport centre invited bids on the Terminal Two phase of its 10-year transformation programme.
Works will include design and construction of an extension that will double the size of the existing building as well as upgrade of a forecourt and building of multi-storey car parks.
Manchester Airport Transformation Programme director Brad Miller said: “After a successful launch in June this year and an extensive consultation period it is exciting to enter the next phase of the project.
“This contract notice and invitation to participate is the single biggest element of the whole £1bn project that spans 10 years, and we are expecting to see a range of high calibre companies put their names forward.
“Over the next decade, the airport will continue to develop as a global gateway for the UK, directly to and from the North, and these enhancements will enable us to further adapt, modernise and transform the customer service experience we are able to offer.”
Organisations wishing to participate will need to demonstrate that they have had an annual turnover in excess of £750M over the last three years.
Interested parties have until 6 January to register their interest. A preferred bidder is expected to be selected in the spring.
