Faithful+Gould is now able to provide project management, cost management and health and safety support to Gatwick Airport, as part of a panel of providers under the framework agreement. This latest framework win for Faithful+Gould was secured against stiff competition, including the incumbents, with the consultant scoring highly against competing bids.
Gatwick’s Capital Investment Programme is a £1.2bn project to upgrade the airport’s facilities, and includes all new capital work on terminals, the airfield, runway, and support structures. Work currently underway at the airport includes a new entrance to the South Terminal; redevelopment of terminal pier infrastructure; improvements to the departure lounges; additional security capacity; and new departure baggage systems in both terminals.
The framework win adds significantly to Faithful+Gould’s growing reputation for expertise in the aviation market. Critical to the award was Faithful+Gould’s commitment to supporting Gatwick Airport’s health and safety programme, Destination Zero, ensuring a zero accident culture is maintained throughout the new building works.
"Inclusion on the framework helps demonstrate our aviation sector expertise and commitment to providing clients with the best possible construction support."
Stephen Hateley, Operations Director - London+South East
