Heathrow unveils third-runway design team

London Heathrow Airport has unveiled the seven companies selected to form its Integrated Design Team (IDT), which will be responsible for designing a sustainable expansion plan for its proposed third-runway project. The plans are subject to final approval from parliament in late 2017.

The IDT comprises Amec Foster Wheeler, Arup, Atkins, Grimshaw, Mott MacDonald, Jacobs and Quod. The seven were selected based on their experience in delivering projects of similar breadth and size to the third runway project at Heathrow. The teams have each been awarded four-year contracts, commencing November 2016.

Barry Weekes, head of design at London Heathrow, said, “With their institutional knowledge of Heathrow, and proven record in building complex infrastructure projects, the members of the IDT will enable us to hit the ground running to deliver Heathrow expansion.

“Their appointment is a significant milestone in what will be a fast paced design and engineering schedule. We are now well on our way to delivering Britain’s new runway, providing the additional capacity our country needs to maintain its place in the world as a prosperous, outward looking trading nation.”

The appointment of the IDT follows the announcement of the partners in the Programme Client Team in March of this year, including Arup, CH2M, MACE and Turner & Townsend.
