Global engineering consultancy Parsons Brinckerhoff has been appointed under Gatwick Airport’s new Engineering Design Framework to provide multi-disciplinary design services in support of the airport’s current and future expansion plans.
Gatwick Airport established the new framework to procure the fullest range of design activities to support the development, modification, operation and maintenance of physical infrastructure as part of the airport’s continuing capital investment programme.
The four-year appointment – which may be extended for a further year – replaces the airport’s current architect and civil engineering-led design frameworks.
Under the framework, Parsons Brinckerhoff will lead the project delivery process with a multi-disciplinary team of specialists including Grimshaw Architects, Gebler Tooth Architects, Chapman Taylor and Excova.
Parsons Brinckerhoff specialists will provide the engineering design solutions.
“Gatwick Airport is crucial to the UK’s economy and international connectivity,” said Parsons Brinckerhoff UK Director of Sustainable Building Services David Luscombe.
“The airport’s strategic growth over the next 10 years aims to position it as the international ‘airport of choice’ for the UK and Europe, delivering a world-class service to its passengers.
“This new framework will help ensure this growth benefits from the very best world-leading design expertise”.
