Words: Huw Morris
Heathrow airport

Heathrow has contracted seven companies to deliver the airport’s expansion.

Quod will be the scheme’s planning consultant, Mott MacDonald will develop the airport masterplan, Jacobs will provide airport planning and engineering services, while Amec Foster Wheeler will lead on Heathrow’s sustainability strategies and environmental impact assessment, and Grimshaw will act as concept architect.

Engineering specialists Arup and Atkins complete the team.

The seven – which will now be known as the Integrated Design Team – were chosen because of their experience in delivering projects of similar size, breadth and importance as an expanded Heathrow. Their appointment followed competitive selection processes and a thorough commercial review.

The teams have each been awarded four-year contracts.
