Over the next three years Balfour Beatty will help to maintain and upgrade Terminals 1, 2 and 4, through the ‘delivery integrator framework lot 1’.
This is the first of four new-style framework contracts to be awarded by Heathrow, each for a different section of the airport, as part of a total investment package of £1.5bn. The new frameworks have a single contractor for each of the four lots.
Balfour Beatty will be programme manager and contractor at various stages throughout the lifecycle of the framework, delivering individual projects worth between £500,000 and £70m. Projects will range from structural improvements to replacing escalators, lifts, air conditioning systems, and CCTV and security systems.
There is an option to extend the framework at the end of 2016 for a further two years, which will be worth up to an additional £70m.
Balfour Beatty has a 15-year association with Heathrow having worked on two previous frameworks. It is currently building the new £590m Terminal 2B facility as part of the Terminal 2 complex, due to open this summer.
