Aecom wins Heathrow T2 design job
Heathrow Terminal 2
Aecom has won a deal to act as lead designer for the Future Terminal 2 project at Heathrow Airport.
The eight-year-contract will see Aecom deliver design and project management services for a new baggage handling system and infrastructure to support the expected growth in passenger numbers at the terminal.
Currently T2, which opened in 2014, uses the baggage system at the now-closed T1.
Aecom will lead and integrate the design of all workstreams under the programme, including demolishing T1 and creating new infrastructure for a permanent T2 baggage system.
The award of the contract comes after Aecom supported Heathrow on the Future T2 programme for the past year.
Heathrow and Aecom have been working collaboratively as one team throughout the duration of the contract, following a Project 13 alliancing approach (Project 13 is an industry business model designedto boost productivity in infrastructure delivery). Under the new deal, Aecom will act as integrator to bring in appropriate suppliers and partners when and where they can add value.
Richard Gammon, managing director, aviation (EMEA), Aecom, said: “The programme’s delivery model enables AECOM and Heathrow to build one collaborative team focused on finding the best and most innovative solutions for this multifaceted programme. We bring global expertise in the delivery of aviation projects at some of the world’s biggest and most complex airports, working behind the scenes to help improve passenger experiences.”
