Heathrow Airport has selected seven companies to design the sustainable expansion plans for the airport.
The selected companies include Amec Foster Wheeler, Arup, Atkins, Grimshaw, Mott MacDonald, Jacobs and Quod. The companies were chosen following a competitive selection process and a thorough commercial review.
The team will be now known as the Integrated Design Team (IDT). Each firm has secured a four-year term contract, which will start in November 2016.
Heathrow’s head of design Barry Weekes said: “Their appointment is a significant milestone in what will be a fast paced design and engineering schedule.
“We are now well on our way to delivering Britain’s new runway, providing the additional capacity our country needs to maintain its place in the world as a prosperous, outward looking trading nation.”
