An engineering joint venture (JV) partnership between Mott MacDonald and Ramboll has secured the design contract for the expansion of London Stansted Airport in the UK.
The JV has been selected together with architect Pascal + Watson (P+W) to design a new arrivals terminal, as well as upgrade the existing terminal at the airport.
London Stansted Airport is owned by Manchester Airports Group and its modernisation is part of the group’s £600m transformation programme.
Under the terms of the contract, Mott MacDonald and Ramboll will provide structural, civil engineering, building services, information and communication technology, specialist systems and airfield engineering for the project.
Additionally, Mott MacDonald will serve as the project manager on the scheme and deliver specialist input on constructability.
Mott MacDonald aviation projects director Gary Howard said: “We’re delighted to be working with P+W and Ramboll on this hugely important project at London Stansted Airport. Our team has a shared vision and ethos for delivering the airport’s transformational programme, with proven experience of delivering projects in live airport environments.
“The redevelopment will support anticipated passenger growth and give users the high-quality facilities that they expect from an international airport.”
Set for completion in 2022, the project involves the development and delivery of P+W’s concept design for a new 34,000m² arrivals terminal, which will relocate all arrivals to a new separate building.
The customised design is in keeping with the architecture of the existing building, which will be transformed into a dedicated departures-only terminal, with the soffit design featuring a modular sky-lit roof.
In addition to the expansion of the check-in, security and retail areas, it will also include a new airside coaching facility, aircraft stands, taxiway infrastructure and car parking facilities.
