Buckingham lands £20m Luton Airport job

Buckingham Group has won the £20m contract to redevelop the car park facilities at Luton Airport.

The contractor beat four competitors to land the design-and-build of a new multi-storey facility capable of holding nearly 2,000 vehicles, with work on the scheme already under way.

In April 2016 Luton Airport unveiled a £1.5bn 20-year investment programme aimed at providing commercial, leisure and housing opportunities for developers while regenerating the town.

The plans contain eight strategic development sites, including a new £200m 2.1 km light rail link between Luton Airport Parkway station and the airport terminal.

A VolkerFitzpatrick and Kier joint venture was selected for the £119m contract to design and deliver the civils work on the rail project.

Earlier this month Buckingham Group reported an increase in profit of more than 20 per cent for 2017, despite a “frustrating year” for its buildings division.

Margin at the firm also increased from 3.4 per cent in 2016 to 3.9 per cent in 2017, which the company said was its highest in 10 years.

Buckingham Group has been contacted for comment.
