Gatwick Airport launches architectural design framework

Gatwick Airport has announced two new supplier frameworks for architectural design and civil engineering, which could see public realm and retail environment tenders put out to the rostered practices. 

The framework review has been brought about to help deliver the £1bn capital investment programme to modernise the airport and improve passenger experience.

Architects Atkins, HOK, Jacobs, Morgan Sindall Professional Services, and Pascal and Watson have been named on the architectural design framework.

Arup, Halcrow, Jacobs, Scott Wilson and TPS have been named on the civil engineering framework.

Gatwick says its OJEU-compliant tenders ‘will involve  the prime design architect or civil engineer taking full accountability for all aspects of the design, including the provision and co-ordination of specialist sub-consultants as required’.

Raymond Melee, Gatwick’s director of capital projects, says that the reviewed frameworks mark ‘a new era for Gatwick as we enter into a new type of relationship with our designers’.

Initial architectural projects may include a North Terminal security development project, additional pier facilities and a redevelopment of the South Terminal baggage area
