Carillion land Heathrow Terminal 5 contract

Carillion has been appointed by BAA to provide pre-construction work for the second satellite at Terminal 5 of Heathrow Airport, worth £300 million.The work will involve design, value management and development of the construction programme, prior to commencement of construction work in Spring 2008.

John McDonough, Carillion's chief executive said: “We're delighted to be working in partnership with BAA on its major investment programme. I believe the breadth of our capabilities and our ability to deliver fully integrated solutions for complex projects was a major factor in our selection for this major project.”

A spokeswoman from BAA told B&E online that Carillion were able suitors.

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. Carillion has been chosen to help us deliver the second phase of the Terminal 5 development, Terminal 5 Satellite C because of the quality of their work and the needs of BAA. We look forward to working 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 completed track renewals work already in hand or planned.

Network Rail announced it has cut its list of contractors to carry out track renewals from six to four.

The four contractors are:

·Amey SECO (JV)

·Balfour Beatty (BBRIS),
