London’s Gatwick Airport has chosen 17 construction and engineering companies for the next stage of its £2.5bn transformation.
The appointment follows the visit of the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan to the airport to support a second runway.
The next stage of its transformation include building, mechanical, electrical and civil engineering works for low-complexity projects up to £1.5M and for medium-complexity projects between £1M-£10M.
Gatwick’s development director Raymond Melee said: “These contractors will help to deliver the next phase of Gatwick’s transformation, which has already seen £1.3bn of investment since independent ownership in 2009.
“Gatwick is growing fast with more than 41M passengers a year now travelling through the world’s busiest single-runway airport — a decade ahead of industry predictions. As we rapidly approach full capacity Gatwick stands ready to deliver a second runway.”
The 17 contractors chosen for the development are Vinci, Galliford Ty, Balfour Beatty, Volker Fitzpatrick, Interserve, Harvey Group, Murphy, Kier, Wates, Marco, Dyer & Butler, Colas, BAM Nuttall, Raymond Brown, Gratte Bros, SSE Contracting and Ergro.
