British consultancy and construction firm Mace has won a contract for a new, £150m arrivals terminal at London Stansted Airport.
Work on the 39,000m² arrivals terminal is due to start in 2019 and scheduled for completion in 2020.
This is the flagship project in the airport’s £600m transformation, which is expected to support its future growth and pioneer the next generation of travel at London Stansted.
The new arrivals terminal will include larger immigration and baggage reclaim areas, new retail facilities, a public forecourt and improved access for all onward transport options.
London Stansted CEO Ken O’Toole said: “I’m delighted to welcome Mace on board as we now focus on the most critical phase in the transformation of London Stansted.
“Mace has a great track record of delivering major projects like this on time, on budget and to the highest quality.
“London Stansted’s transformation project is really gathering momentum. We’ve made fantastic progress so far, but it’s this year when the project starts to take-off when work begins on our arrivals terminal.
“The terminal is the most significant contract the airport has awarded as part of this project, and when complete it will provide a first-class, technology enabled, experience for our passengers.”
After the completion of the new arrivals terminal, Stansted will be the only airport in the UK to operate dedicated arrivals and departures terminals.
Mace COO for construction Gareth Lewis said: “The new arrivals terminal will completely transform Stansted and the experiences of the millions of people that arrive at the airport every year.
“Mace has a long heritage in the safe and successful delivery of major aviation projects across the world.
“This will be our first major construction project at Stansted since 2008, and we look forward to working closely with Manchester Airports Group to deliver the terminal.”
