Balfour Beatty to upgrade baggage handling systems at London Heathrow

Construction firm Balfour Beatty has been awarded a £170m (US$223m) contract to upgrade the baggage screening and handling systems for London Heathrow Airport.

The project, which has been awarded by the operator Heathrow Airport Limited, will involve upgrading and installing baggage screening and handling systems at the airport’s eastern baggage facility.

Leo Quinn, chief executive, Balfour Beatty Group, said, “This contract award is testament to the strength of the partnership we have developed with Heathrow Airport Limited over the past 17 years. The UK aviation sector is a core market for Balfour Beatty and we are delighted to play our part in helping Heathrow maintain its position as a leading travel hub and supporting local employment.”

The new contract has been awarded as part of Heathrow Airport’s three-year Delivery Integrator Framework, put in place to help deliver infrastructure upgrades and asset management works at the airport. The framework is intended to save the airport 10% on its capital investment program.
