ISG, Kier, Morgan Sindall and Willmott Dixon have won places alongside nine other contractors on the £150m Bristol International Airport expansion framework.
Morgan Sindall won a place on both the construction and civils sides of the framework.
Six other contractors were appointed to each side, in order to meet the increasing demands of the expanding south west transport centre.
The framework, intended to deliver the airport’s plan for growth, is to last four years. The facility is expecting 10 million passengers per annum within a decade.
Anticipated projects to be undertaken include doubling the size of the airport terminal, a new office building for airport staff and retail space, replacement public walkways, enhanced public transport infrastructure and increased parking capacity. The main access road will also be widened.
Capacity will also be increased at security and immigration, as well as for aircraft accomodation. A new public transport interchange will also be built, as will a new underground fuel storage facility.
As a partner in the framework ISG will be given the opportunity to bid for all construction schemes within the £4.3 million to £20 million value band at the airport.
It may also be able to bid for work below the £4.3 million threshold.
Bristol-based ISG emphasised the opportunity its appointment to the framework presented to the regional economy.
The firm’s south west managing director, John Rawlinson, said: “Securing a coveted place on one of the region’s most highly anticipated development frameworks is a major success for the business.
“The boost to the regional economy of a project of this scale and ambition will be highly significant and, as a Bristol-based contractor, we are committed to utilising the skills and expertise of the local supply chain across the framework.”
