Galliford Try awarded infrastructure works for Manchester Airport

Galliford Try has been awarded a £38m (US$50m) contract from airport operator Manchester Airports Group (MAG) for works within the £1bn (US$1.3bn) Manchester Airport Transformation Project.

The 10-year Transformation Project will double the size of Terminal 2, create more than 1,500 jobs in the construction phase and deliver a major boost to the UK’s growth prospects and international competitiveness.

The contract centers around the extension of the airfield’s west apron and includes construction of new taxiways and aircraft stands around piers and terminal buildings along with associated stand reconfigurations, ground lighting, drainage, communications networks, security fencing and aircraft control systems.

Work will involve laying more than 95,000m² (1,000,000ft²) of pavement quality concrete and similar quantity of stone as well as installation of 6km (3.7 miles) of ducting and cabling, over 500 airfield lights and new fire and aviation fuel mains.

Colin Abbott, aviation director, Galliford Try, said, “A challenge of the scheme is that it needs to be undertaken while the airfield remains in operation. We have considerable experience of this type of work and will complete it efficiently and to a high standard without disrupting the safe running of our client’s day to day activities.”

Work starts immediately and completion is due by November 2018.
