The development will add an extra 5,900m' of floor space to the international arrivals area of the terminal and is due to open by June 2008, with the project fully completed by December 2008.The terminal extension will involve the erecting of 22 diagonal grids, forming the roof, and six support trees.To meet its carbon neutral claim, Stansted owner and operator BAA will use biomass boilers burning renewable forms of fuel to generate hot water for direct use and heating purposes. BAA clains this initiative will reduce the terminal's carbon emissions by 1,824,000kg a year. Mace, one of BAA's framework contractors, is the main management and construction firm on the project.
