Jacobs Engineering Group has won a contract to provide multidisciplinary engineering and architectural services to Manchester Airports Group (MAG), as part of the UK's $1.4bn Manchester Airport Transformation Programme (MANTP).

The MANTP is a ten-year investment programme initiated to maintain the international status of Manchester Airport.

Started by the airport operator MAG, the programme includes the 60 development projects.

Under the deal, Jacobs will have to provide multidisciplinary engineering and architectural services to develop new and improved facilities.

These facilities include airfield, piers, terminal, multi-level car parks and surface access.

MAG chief executive Charlie Cornish 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.

"We recognise now is the right time to deliver a transformation programme that will meet the needs of all our customers and drive further economic growth for both the region and country."

"At Manchester, we have invested heavily in meeting the needs of our airlines, passengers and local communities, and we recognise now is the right time to deliver a transformation programme 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 fulfil this ambitious project over the coming years."

The project will be completed in phases to carry out the airport operations with minimum disruptions.

Jacobs Engineering Group Buildings and Infrastructure senior vice-president Bob Duff said: "We are delighted to continue our relationship with MAG and support Manchester Airport with this major programme to transform passenger experience, advance connectivity in the north of the UK and create an exceptional world-class airport."

The company has also assisted MAG in providing its transformational project at Stansted Airport.
