Construction company Jacobs Engineering has been awarded a contract to provide multidisciplinary engineering and selected architectural services for the transformation project taking place at Manchester Airport in northwest England.
The US$1.4bn transformation program will deliver a series of 60 enhancements over a 10-year period, including airside and landside developments. Jacobs will provide its services in respect of the new terminal, piers, airfield, multi-story parking garages and surface access facilities.
Charlie Cornish, chief executive of Manchester Airports Group (MAG), the airport operator, said, “Manchester Airport is thriving as a national asset, forming a key component of the UK’s aviation infrastructure at a time when airport capacity in the UK is at a premium.
“At Manchester we have invested heavily in meeting the needs of our airlines, passengers and local communities, and we recognize that now is the right time to deliver a transformation program that will meet the needs of all our customers and drive further economic growth for both the region and the country.
“We are delighted to have Jacobs on board and look forward to working with its team to fulfill this ambitious project over the coming years.”
Bob Duff, senior vice president of buildings and infrastructure at Jacobs, said, “We are delighted to continue our relationship with MAG and support Manchester Airport with this major program to transform passenger experience, advance connectivity in the North of the UK and create an exceptional, world-class airport.”
