Gatwick awards Construction Frameworks to help guide US$1.5bn transformation plan

Gatwick Airport has announced the award of two new Frameworks for construction activity in support of its recently announced five-year Capital Investment Programme.

The Design and Engineering Services Framework and the Professional Services Resource Framework will have 18 specialist consultancies to select from to support the five-year plan. This follows a rigorous procurement process that involved interest from more than 250 organizations, with more than 130 formal applications being evaluated by Gatwick.

The Design and Engineering Framework has awarded preferred bidder status to 13 consultants:
• Low Complexity Architecture to Pascall + Watson, Atkins, and 3DReid;
• Low Complexity Structures and Civils to WSP, Jacobs, RPS, AMEY OW, and Ramboll;
• Low Complexity Engineering (M&E) to WSP, Cundall, TSP, Hulley & Kirkwood; and
• Medium/High Complexity Design to WSP, RPS, Chapman Taylor/Arcadis, Arup, Jacobs.

By classifying projects according to complexity rather than value, Gatwick has set up agreements with these organizations to provide opportunities in building, civil engineering and mechanical/electrical design across small, medium and large projects.

The Professional Services Resource Framework has been awarded to seven organizations who will support Gatwick over the next four years with the supply of commercial and project management resource such as contract administrators, cost engineers, estimators, project managers, engineers, planners and risk managers. These are Arcadis, Faithful + Gould, Robinson Low Francis, Doig and Smith, Currie & Brown, WSP UK and AECOM.

Raymond Melee, Gatwick Airport’s director of construction, said, “It’s an exciting time at Gatwick as we kick off our five-year Capital Investment Programme with £1.15bn (US$1.5bn) committed up to 2022 and £240m (US$313m) planned for 2017/18 alone.

“We are halfway through a £2.7bn (US$3.5bn) transformation program as we plan for more growth and improved efficiency, while also maintaining our record levels of passenger satisfaction.

“I look forward to working with these specialists to boost our in-house teams as we move through the various stages of our projects.”
