Heathrow Airport (LHR) in the UK has utilised Costain to modernise its operations and support its goal of becoming a net-zero aviation hub.
As a delivery partner, Costain will work with the airport on asset renewal and construction projects procured via the Terminal Asset Renewal Partner and Major Project Partner lots of the H7 framework.
Costain’s first commission is early contractor involvement in the design phase of the overhaul of baggage handling facilities and systems at Terminal 2.
The scope of the works includes upgrades to Terminal 2 and adjacent facilities and the delivery of crucial projects.
The firm’s Heathrow team will work on the lifecycle of renewal and construction projects and use a systems approach.
This approach will help detect efficiencies, offer a blueprint for sustainable operations and streamline work delivery.
Costain transportation managing director Sue Kershaw said: “I am delighted that our construction, consulting, and digital experts have been selected to help Heathrow transform its performance.
“Our integrated team will work closely with Heathrow to address the challenges of rebounding from Covid, transforming to a net-zero airport, and attracting new customers and airlines to give passengers a world-class airport experience.”
Heathrow chief solutions officer Helen Elsby said: “We have bold plans to improve Heathrow over the next four years, making sure journeys are smooth, safe, and reliable.”
