Gatwick Airport announces architectural framework

Gatwick Airport has revealed the framework practices for its £1 billion capital projects programme

Atkins, HOK, Jacobs, Morgan Sindall Professional Services and Pascal & Watson have entered a three to four year framework agreement which will allow them to bid for new projects arising out of the West Sussex airports’ ongoing £1 billion building project.

Upcoming schemes could include security upgrades at the North Terminal, new aircraft pier facilities and the re-development of the South Terminal baggage centre. 

Raymond Melee, director of capital projects at Gatwick, said: ‘This announcement signals a new era for Gatwick, as we enter into a new type of relationship with our designers. It is another positive step forward in our relentless drive for capital efficiency, quality and safety through design, as we transform Gatwick into London’s airport of choice for the future.’

A ‘prime contracting’ appointment means the practices will take full accountability for all aspects of designs, including the co-ordination of sub-consultants.

The airport has recently seen a surge in construction projects, with several schemes in the pipeline. 3D Reid is designing the south terminal’s security upgrades and a new immigration hall.

Meanwhile, Grimshaw Architects has designed a new pier, forecourt and entrance for the South Terminal and Capita Architecture has designed a gateway to the North Terminal.
