London Heathrow Airport has announced that engineering firms Arup, CH2M, MACE and Turner & Townsend have been selected as the preferred partners for the airport’s third runway expansion program, should it receive government approval.

The companies were selected following a competitive bidding process and will ensure that Heathrow is fully prepared to begin construction work should approval be granted at any point in time. London Heathrow was selected as the Airports Commission’s recommended choice for airspace expansion in the UK although the British government has postponed making a final decision pending further investigations into environmental studies.

Ian Ballentine, director of procurement, London Heathrow Airport, said, “I’m delighted that our client partners are now on board and I look forward to working with them to give the UK a truly world-class, sustainable hub airport. This privately financed, £16bn (US$23bn) project will benefit the whole UK as we work to widen the supply-chain right across the nation.”

Gregory Hodkinson, chairman, Arup Group, said, “We’re delighted that Arup has been selected as a Program Client Partner (PCP). This strategic appointment to be a key member of the integrated client team builds on our 30-year relationship with Heathrow. As part of the leadership team, we bring extensive cross sector experience of the successful development and delivery of large complex programs in the UK, as well as leading aviation expertise from working with over 100 airports globally. We look forward to working with Heathrow and our fellow partners to fulfill Heathrow’s vision of [being a] world-class, sustainable, airport that benefits all of the UK.”

Vincent Clancy, chief executive, Turner & Townsend, said, “We are delighted to be supporting Heathrow in the next phase of its expansion. We are ready to bring our program management and commercial expertise from airports in over 20 countries to deliver the capacity and global connectivity the UK so urgently needs.

“The Airports Commission has made a clear recommendation and we now need the government to stop stalling and give Heathrow permission to build an airport of which the country can be proud.”
