Gatwick names contractors appointed to £1.2bn framework

Gatwick Airport has confirmed the winners on its low and medium complexity frameworks, which aims to deliver its Capital Investment Programme over the next five years.

The project will focus on bringing existing airport infrastructure up to date, whilst increasing future passenger capacity. Gatwick continues to await the government’s decision on the proposal of a second runway.

The new frameworks include a total of six supply chains of building, mechanical and electrical, and civil engineering across low and medium complexity works.

The two frameworks have been graded by complexity – one for low complexity projects involving contracts of up to £1.5m and the other for medium complexity projects for contracts between £1m to £10m.

Liz Townsend, Head of Procurement at Gatwick Airport said: “We have appointed a framework of competent, cost effective contractors, including a range of different business models to give us maximum flexibility.”

The list of seventeen preferred contractors have been named as:

  • Balfour Beatty
  • BAM Nuttall
