Five firms win civils work on Gatwick framework

Gatwick north terminal

Five firms have been chosen to deliver structural and civil engineering works on Gatwick Airport’s £1bn transformation plan.

Amey, Jacobs, Ramboll, RPS and WSP won places on the low complexity structures and civils lot of the Sussex airport’s five-year consultancy framework.  Gatwick last week revealed plans to spend £1.15bn over five years on projects including reconfiguring stands to facilitate a changing aircraft mix; building a new hangar in partnership with Boeing; and adding a new domestic arrivals facility in the South Terminal.

Today it will reveal the consultants on a four-lot framework to support this work.

Alongside the structures and civils winners above, Gatwick will name Atkins, Pascall + Watson and 3DReid as architects; and Cundall, Hulley&Kirkwood, TSP and WSP for M&E work.

Meanwhile Arup, Cundall, Jacobs, RPS and WSP will be selected for complex design work.

Seven firms will be named on a separate framework to provide commercial and project management support over the next four years.

These are Aecom, Arcadis, Currie & Brown, Doig and Smith, Faithful + Gould, Robinson Low Francis and WSP.

Gatwick director of construction Raymond Melee said: “It’s an exciting time at Gatwick as we kick off our five-year Capital Investment Programme with £1.15bn committed up to 2022 and £240m planned for 2017/18 alone.

“I look forward to working with these specialists to boost our in-house teams as we move through the various stages of our projects.”  The airport last week said it was still holding out hope of building a second runway, which Bechtel would deliver if permission was given.
