Gatwick Airport announced 2.5 billion pounds expansion requirements

Staff writer |
Gatwick Airport announced its requirement for three new frameworks which will further its transformation in preparation for building its second runway.

The three frameworks are for:

- Airport planning services
- Architectural, structural and building services design and engineering for projects less than £5 million
- Multi-discipline design and engineering for projects greater than £5 million

The airport planning services framework incorporates key infrastructure planning associated with the second runway, and is estimated between £3 million and £5 million. It will include architectural and engineering services, urban planning, landscape engineering, technical consulting and analysis.

The two design frameworks incorporate lower complexity design work for projects up to £5 million in value, and higher complexity design work for projects above the £5 million threshold.

Both design frameworks relate to the delivery of the following services: architectural design, civil and structural engineering design and mechanical and electrical design.

All three frameworks incorporate works which are already part of Gatwick’s transformation programme which is now committed at £2.5 billion since becoming independent from BAA in 2009, up to 2021.

The estimated value of these frameworks is approximately £75 million with additional funding for second runway related projects, which have a potential works value of £150 to £200 million.

The frameworks highlight Gatwick’s readiness to build a second runway ahead of the Government decision later this year.
