Carillion has been contracted by BAA to conduct pre-construction work for the second satellite at Terminal 5 of Heathrow Airport, valued £300 million. The work will entail design, value management and development of the construction plan, preparatory to initiation of construction work in Spring 2008.
Carillion’s CEO, John McDonough, stated: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with BAA on its major investment programme.” “Our ability to deliver fully integrated solutions for complex projects was a major factor in our selection for this major project,” he asserted.
BAA’s spokeswoman informed B&E website that Carillion was a potential suitor, according to the company.
She said: “The huge scale of our planned capital investment programme over the next ten years means we need to ensure we have the right breadth of capability and capacity within our supply chain. For the Terminal 5 Satellite C development, we’ve selected Carillion as our partner due to the high quality of their work and the requirements of BAA. We look forward to collaborating with them on this important project.”
The news comes as Carillion failed to make the cut of contractors to carry out track renewals for Network Rail beyond 2008, by which time Carillion will have finished track renewals work already in hand or planned.
Network Rail revealed it had shortened its list of contractors to carry out track renewals from six to four.
These are the four subcontractors:
- Amey SECO (JV)
- ·Balfour Beatty (BBRIS) (BBRIS),
- Engineering, First Ltd.
- Jarvis Plc.
