Architectural firm Grimshaw has been selected to create expansion designs, which follow the concept of Heathrow as the hub airport of the future. 

This followed a competition, which saw participation of Zaha Hadid Architects, Benoy, and HOK. Grimshaw was chosen for its visionary concept designs, which expanded the scope of what an airport should be, as well as for its ideas on how the airport could be expanded in a sustainable and affordable approach.

Grimshaw partner Jolyon Brewis said: “We are passionate about designing a new future for Heathrow Airport; setting a benchmark for sustainable infrastructure skilfully integrated with the communities it serves.

"Heathrow have ambitious plans for the expansion of the airport and we are proud to be selected to help deliver this inspirational vision."
