Since February 2016, Kier have worked on over £50m of projects at London Gatwick including the multi-storey car park 6 (MSCP 6) refurbishment, out of gauge (OOG) baggage, airline moves including relocating BA and VAA, TUI engineering project, Easyjet engineering offices and a significant upgrade to the security facility at Jubilee House.
These projects often involve working in both airside and landside areas in a live operating environment. Kier worked closely with a range of stakeholders, to ensure that all logistics, programme management, safety, quality and commercial aspects were delivered in accordance with stringent airport environmental standards with minimal disruption to the airport.
The success of these projects centred around working collaboratively with the client, consultants, security departments, airlines and other key stakeholders as one team to ensure challenges, issues and obstacles were resolved quickly.
Understanding and delivering what the client wanted was essential, therefore early engagement with stakeholders was essential. Kier was involved with early contractor involvement (ECI) design, design and build and led the RIBA process providing GAL with expert advice on buildability, value engineering opportunities and efficiencies.
Our solutions have ensured no disruption to the public and no impact on airport operations throughout delivery of our works.
