Jacobs on board for £1bn Manchester airport upgrade
Jacobs Engineering Group has been awarded a contract to provide engineering services for the £1bn Manchester Airport overhaul.
10-year modernisation programme involves new baggage handling facilities, alterations and extension of the existing terminal, new piers and multi-storey car parks.
The consultant will provide multidisciplinary engineering and selected architectural services to Manchester Airports Group to support development of the Manchester Airport Transformation Program in the United Kingdom.
The phased 10-year programme includes the delivery of 60 enhancements, as well as significant airside and landside development.
Contractors are being shortlisted to bid for the major Terminal 2 upgrade, which forms the core of a modernisation programme, and involves new baggage handling facilities, alterations and extension of the existing terminal, new piers and multi-storey car parks.
Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is providing multidisciplinary engineering and selected architectural services for new and upgraded facilities including terminal, piers, airfield, multi-level car parks and surface access facilities.
The planned expansion, which is being project managed by Arcadis, provides for a significant increase in Manchester Airport’s capacity and allows for optimum use of its two existing parallel runways.
