Heathrow Airport selects Morgan Sindall for key framework

Morgan Sindall has confirmed that it has been selected as one of four partners to deliver a £1.5 billion programme of upgrades and improvements at Heathrow Airport over the next five years.

Morgan Sindall has been appointed to a three year contract as Heathrow’s Delivery Integrator to deliver the airport’s project works for the southern campus of the airport’s airside and landside infrastructure. This is one of four geographic zones in total and, in each case, a single contractor is appointed to deliver the work.

Graham Shennan, managing director of Morgan Sindall, said: “We are delighted to continue what is already a successful working relationship. Heathrow is the UK’s only full scale hub airport, providing links to the world’s leading cities as ranked by GDP. As such, its ongoing asset replacement programme is of key strategic importance to this country. We have an experienced team that is well used to the pressures of operating in a live airside environment, which does pose meaningful challenges and constraints for contractors. We very much welcome the opportunity to once again demonstrate our spirit of professional collaboration, our efficiency and our ability to innovate on often complex projects.”

Morgan Sindall is already carrying out a variety of projects at Heathrow Airport, including a £31 million runway rehabilitation project. In addition, it is replacing seven air bridges at the airport in partnership with German company Thyssen Krupp and is fulfilling a £6.4 million contract with British Airways at Heathrow Airport to modernise two aircraft hangars in preparation for the arrival of the new B787 Dreamliner and B777-300ER aircraft.
