Competition for the controversial Heathrow third runway masterplan

Competition for the controversial Heathrow third runway masterplan

BAA is looking to appoint a team to produce a ‘comprehensive masterplan to examine the potential expansion of Heathrow Airport’ – including a third runway and a new sixth terminal.

A tender notice was issued on behalf of airport owner BAA via the procurement body AirportSmart this week. Released as an open competition, the tender is divided into three lots: masterplan and lead design, civil engineering, and airport facilities planning.

The contract could be awarded to one organisation, or three, a source close to the project said. Among the architects expected to throw their hats into the ring include Foster + Partners, Pascall and Watson, and 3DReid – which has already drawn up masterplans for Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stanstead airports.

Pre-qualification closes for the tender on 27 July. For further information contact john_costigane@baa.com. Seen at The Architect’s Journal.
