Benoy joins Grimshaw on Heathrow expansion job

  • 1 Comment

Benoy has joined the team working on Heathrow Airport’s £16 billion growth plans

The retail stalwart and growing aviation specialist will help deliver the site-wide commercial masterplan, supporting project lead Grimshaw, as the airport adds a third runway and an extra terminal to its existing five. 

In 2015 the Airports Commission published its long-awaited report into UK aviation capacity, recommending the construction of an extra runway at Heathrow. It claimed that option would deliver the most economic growth to the country, potentially adding £147 billion to the economy.

Last  year, Benoy was one of four UK firms shortlisted by Heathrow, alongside Grimshaw – the eventual winner – Zaha Hadid Architects, and HOK, to deliver ‘bold new ideas and conceptual designs to push the boundary of what Heathrow could be as the country’s global aviation gateway’.

Tom Cartledge, Benoy’s chief executive officer, said: ‘From the start of the selection process, we have shared and believed in the same outlook as our client; to blend a powerful people-centred approach within a convincing commercial and urban matrix.

‘We are committed to seeing Heathrow continue to become a fully integrated and sustainable airport which will drive innovation and showcase the best of British design and can’t wait to get started.’

Benoy has been strengthening its presence in airport design recently, having worked on the interior upgrades at Foster + Partners’ Hong Kong International Airport in 2010 and on the ongoing expansion of Singapore Changi Airport.

  • They'd better NOT be working towards completion of a fait accompli - BEFORE any expansion has even been decided yet...!!!
