HETCo – a joint venture between Ferrovial Agroman and Laing O’Rourke – has officially signed an £800 million deal with BAA to build the new Terminal 2 at Heathrow Airport.
Under the contract – the largest construction job ever awarded by the airport operator – the joint venture will excavate the site and build the 40,000 sq m main structure as well as constructing ten aircraft parking stands.
HETCo will also be responsible for the full coordination and integration of the baggage systems and the building’s information controls systems both within the new terminal and into the Heathrow wide network.
The joint venture was appointed to construct Terminal 2 in 2008, following its selection, through competition, as one of BAA’s nine construction suppliers.
Heathrow’s capital director Steven Morgan said: “This is BAA’s largest ever single construction contract, and I am confident that it represents great value for our airlines and for the millions of passengers that will benefit from its modern, new facilities. The HETCo team has demonstrated to us that they will deliver this project in a timely and efficient way, and to a high standard.”
