Gatwick names 17 contractors for £1.2bn framework

Seventeen construction contractors have been selected by Gatwick Airport for its five-year capital investment programme, worth £1.2 bn.

The contractors have been awarded agreements within Gatwick’s low and medium complexity frameworks for construction and engineering projects.

Investment will focus on developing the existing airport infrastructure and increasing future passenger capacity.

There is one frameworks for low complexity projects typically involving contracts of up to £1.5m and the other for medium complexity projects for contracts between £1m and £10m.

Of the 127 companies that submitted pre-qualification information, there is now a final shortlist of 17 preferred contractors, including both local and national, mid and larger sized firms.

The chosen 17 are:

  • Vinci
  • Galliford Try
  • Balfour Beatty
  • Volker Fitzpatrick
  • Interserve
  • Harvey Group
  • Murphy
  • Kier
  • Wates
  • Marco
  • Dyer & Butler
  • Colas
  • BAM Nuttall
  • Raymond Brown
  • Gratte Bros
  • SSE Contracting
  • Ergro

The new frameworks include a total of six supply chains of building, mechanical and electrical, and civil engineering across low and medium complexity works. A key aspect of the new frameworks is a change in procurement strategy, generating options for Gatwick to shape its own supply chain and get closer to the performance of its chosen contractors. 

Gatwick head of procurement Liz Townsend said: “We have appointed a framework of competent, cost effective contractors, including a range of different business models to give us maximum flexibility. These contractors will help Gatwick deliver on the next phase of transformation, which has already seen £1.3bn invested since Gatwick entered private ownership in 2009.”
