Carillion chosen to lead £75m revamp of Gatwick pier 5

Carillion has landed a £75m contract to carry out reconfiguration of pier 5 at Gatwick.

The work will include construction of a new departures corridor to be built on top of the existing pier and a number of aircraft stands will be reconfigured as Gatwick aims to improve passenger flow.

Doig+Smith was appointed to provide contract administration and cost engineering support in August 2011 and said gaterooms for departing passengers will be reconfigured to suit the new stand layout.

Works are due to start imminently and will be completed by summer 2014 and Carillion has fended off competition from rival contractors on the £1.2 billion major projects framework to land the job.

The contractors on the framework are Balfour Beatty, Bouygues, Costain, Mace, Morgan Sindall, Laing O’Rourke, Vinci, Volker Fitzpatrick and Willmott Dixon.
