Pascall + Watson has submitted plans to Uttlesford District Council for a new £130 million arrivals building at Stansted Airport
The proposal, for Stansted’s owner Manchester Airports Group, is for a three-floor 34,000m² building to sit next to the existing terminal designed by Norman Foster.
Pascall + Watson’s scheme will also allow Foster’s building, which currently accomodates both arrivals and departures, to be used soley for departures.
The plans will contribute to the Essex airport’s growth forecast of increasing its passenger numbers from 24 million per year to the planning cap of 35 million in 2025.
Stansted Airport chief executive Andrew Cowan said: ‘Stansted is thriving as a national asset, forming a key component of the UK’s aviation infrastructure at a time when airport capacity in the country is at a premium.
‘Our investment will boost competition and enable the airport to play a bigger role in supporting economic growth, jobs and international connectivity across the east of England and London.’
If approved, the new arrivals building is expected to be completed within three years, with alterations to Foster’s terminal set to be finished by 2022.
The Manchester Airports Group also owns Manchester, East Midlands and Bournemouth airports.
In July, the government approved Pascall + Watson’s £344 million expansion plans for London City Airport. The proposals include a three-storey passenger pier, new aircraft taxiway, a 260-bed hotel and parking spaces for planes.
