Manchester Airport seeks bidders for £1bn transformation

11 Dec 15 Manchester Airport is inviting contractors to bid for work worth up to £500m, as part of its £1bn 10-year transformation programme.

The airport has issued a contract notice for the Terminal Two transformation phase, which includes the design and construction of an extension to the existing building, more than doubling its size. This contract represents the majority of the works associated with the programme.

The proposed works comprise, but are not limited to, the following elements:

  • New baggage factory
  • New piers
  • New terminal extension and upgrade of existing forecourt
  • Associated access roads
  • Alterations to existing terminal
  • New multi-storey car parks
  • Site clearance
  • Associated services diversion.

Brad Miller, Manchester Airport Transformation Programme (MAN-TP) director, said: “After a successful launch in June this year and an extensive consultation period it is exciting to enter the next phase of the project.

“This contract notice and invitation to participate, is the single biggest element of the whole £1bn project that spans 10 years, and we are expecting to see a range of high calibre companies put their names forward.

“Over the next decade, the airport will continue to develop as a global gateway for the UK, directly to and from the North, and these enhancements will enable us to further adapt, modernise and transform the customer service experience we are able to offer.”

The pre-qualification questionnaire stipulates that bidders must have had an annual turnover of more than £750m for the last three years.
