Full list: 17 contractors chosen for £750m Gatwick frameworks

Exclusive: Nearly 20 contractors have been selected for two major Gatwick Airport frameworks worth a total of £750m.

Balfour Beatty, Bam Nuttall, Interserve and Murphy were all named among the 17 preferred bidders on the frameworks that will cover Gatwick’s £1.2bn capital investment programme.

The first framework includes medium-complexity work for contracts worth between £1m and £10m.

This will be split across three lots: building; civil engineering; and M&E, with five companies allocated to each lot.

Balfour Beatty, Galliford Try, Kier, Vinci and Wates have secured places on the building framework, while Bam Nuttall, Galliford Try, Interserve, Kier and VolkerFitzpatrick will battle it out on the civils framework.

Gratte Bros, Harvey Group, Murphy and Wates make up the firms on medium M&E lot.

The second framework covers low-complexity projects involving contracts up to £1.5m.

Balfour Beatty, Galliford Try and Wates will also compete on this framework, with smaller firms Dyer & Butler, Marco and Raymond Brown among the other names selected.

The tendering process saw 127 companies bid for a place on the frameworks when they were launched last September.

The announcement comes a week after Gatwick added an extra £200m to its capital investment programme.

The capital investment programme is set run to 2021 and will cover the expansion of North and South terminals, the expansion of South terminal immigration halls and surface access and road improvements.

Work tendered within the frameworks will include a mixture of mini-competitions and Gatwick negotiating individual contracts with firms.

Both frameworks will also see contractors partnered with Gatwick’s in-house delivery teams in joint partnerships.

The airport said the new procurement strategy would encourage collaboration and allow it to shape its supply chain in the long term.

A high complexity framework for projects over £10m is set to be launched later this year.

Gatwick Airport head of procurement Liz Townsend said: “We have appointed a framework of competent, cost-effective contractors, including a range of different business models to give us maximum flexibility.

“These contractors will help Gatwick deliver on the next phase of transformation, which has already seen £1.3bn invested since Gatwick entered private ownership in 2009.”
