Gatwick recruits infrastructure specialists as part of US$310m investment this year

Gatwick Airport has awarded its Airport Planning Services Framework to three infrastructure specialists – Arup, Atkins and Jacobs.

The three companies will be called upon to work with the airport on capacity assessments as it analyzes future growth from existing infrastructure.

Following a competitive procurement process, Arup, Atkins and Jacobs were chosen because they matched the airport’s criteria, which looked at the organizations’ experience and expertise in providing specialist planning services such as capacity analysis and simulation modeling.

Gatwick’s newly appointed chief planning officer, Tim Norwood, commented, “The award of this framework sends a clear message that Gatwick is committed to continued growth, despite the constraints of the single runway and our existing infrastructure.

“We will always look for clever ways to improve passenger processes while being focused on what people want, and it is important to work with specialists in this field to understand some of the critical flows of the airport”.

Over the five-year framework, it is expected the firms will assist with analysis of the processing capacity of the airport’s existing infrastructure; provide facility requirements, including infrastructure needed to meet continued traffic growth; and provide functional layout planning and simulation modeling services.

The airport is halfway through a £2.5bn (US$3.23bn) program of transformation, designed to improve passenger experience while also facilitating essential growth for its airline partners and their cargo handling capabilities.

The Airport Planning Framework covers the entire airport infrastructure including terminals, aprons, airfield and all commercial, ancillary and support functions such as landside roads and forecourts.
