Manchester Airport has invited businesses to bid for contracts worth up to £500 million as part of the airport’s transformation programme which will take place over a 10 year period.
As part of the Terminal Two transformation phase, Manchester Airport has issued a contract notice which includes the design and construction of an extension to the existing terminal building which will see it double in size.
The work will comprise of the following: new baggage factory, new piers, associated access roads, site clearance, new multi-storey car parks, a new terminal extension and upgrade of the existing forecourt as well as alterations to the existing terminal.
Businesses have been invited to complete a questionnaire and organisations who wish to get involved must prove that they have an annual turnover in excess of £750 million over the past three years.
Brad Miller, Manchester Airport’s Transformation Programme Director said:
“After a successful launch in June this year and an extensive consultation period it is exciting to enter the next phase of the project.
“This contract notice and invitation to participate, is the single biggest element of the whole £1bn project that spans ten years, and we are expecting to see a range of high calibre companies put their names forward.
“Over the next decade, the airport will continue to develop as a global gateway for the UK, directly to and from the North, and these enhancements will enable us to further adapt, modernise and transform the customer service experience we are able to offer.”
