Morgan Sindall will be carrying out £7.3M worth of infrastructure and runway improvements at Heathrow Airport.
The team has already finished the pre-contract enabling works and the first phase of the scheme which involved resurfacing the Terminal 5 end of the southern runway using a new polymer modified bitumen (PMB) asphalt that has been specifically designed to be strong and crack-resistant for airports.
The works are all part of the £.15bn Q6 framework, of which Morgan Sindall is one of four contractors.
The next stage is the replacement of underground stone water-drainage pipes. Work will be carried out at night so there is no disruption to flights, and it is expected to finish by the end of 2017.
“We have a long standing relationship with Heathrow Airport and a track record of successfully delivering this kind of work,” said Morgan Sindall managing director of aviation Keith Cannin.
“Our site team understand the pressures and considerations involved working in a live airside environment and always take the necessary measures to mitigate interruptions at the airport.”
