The framework runs for an initial three years with the potential for two further 12-month extensions.

The framework will cover all capital delivery needs across the airport group’s portfolio, which includes Manchester, Stansted, East Midlands and Bournemouth airports.

Manchester Airports Group chief operating officer Andrew Cowan said: “The group has doubled in size this year with the acquisition of London Stansted and with a number of major projects due to get underway, we wanted to have a group of partners alongside us capable of delivering high-quality engineering and construction work so that we can continue to develop the business. We’ve also selected partners that are capable of covering the wide geographical footprint of our operations as we now have airports in London, the south, Midlands and the north of the country.

"They are also experienced in the aviation sector and will get to use those skills across a wide array of assets including runways, terminals, car parks and our property portfolio. We need partners that share our vision and drive so we are pleased to have secured three companies of suitable scale to our framework roster.”

Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: "We are delighted to have been successful in securing a place on this substantial framework. This award demonstrates the strength that the diversity of our business operations represents and we look forward to working with Manchester Airports Group on their many exciting projects."

BAM’s framework leader, Adrian Blackie, said: “Although we take nothing for granted about winning work under this framework, we are greatly looking forward to working with the Manchester Airport Group.”
