Heathrow announces client partners for expansion programme


In preparation for Heathrow Airport’s expansion programme as soon as the Government gives the green light, Heathrow Airport Ltd has announced the four winning bidders, following a competitive process. They are Arup, CH2M, MACE and Turner & Townsend, as partners in the Programme Client.

Last July, the Government’s independent Airports Commission unanimously and unambiguously recommended the expansion and said that it could be done within environmental limits. With the programme’s client partners now on board, Heathrow is ready to begin the process of expansion as soon as the Government gives the go ahead.

Ian Ballentine, Heathrow’s director of procurement, said, ‘This privately financed £16 billion project will benefit the whole UK as we work to widen the supply chain right across the nation.’
