The 10-year programme at Manchester Airport comprises a series of 60 enhancements to increase passenger capacity from 20 million to 30 million passengers by 2025. Terminal 2 is to be expanded and reconfigured to become the airport’s primary terminal building, and Terminal 3 is to be improved.

Arcadis, a Dutch firm that took over UK quantity surveyor EC Harris in 2011, will be responsible for programme management, as well as supporting MAG in its wider stakeholder management.

Arcadis’ programme and project services team has been a framework supplier of project and commercial services to MAG since March 2015.

Brad Miller, programme director for the Manchester Airport transformation programme, said: "We are investing £1bn in the 10-year programme, which will radically improve the passenger and airline experience at Manchester Airport. Whilst we are just at the start of this transformation project, there is already a great sense of excitement about what will be delivered and how. The team and I are delighted to have appointed Arcadis to support us on this journey, as they have clearly demonstrated how they will bring value to the programme."
