Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, has been awarded a £170 million contract to upgrade baggage screening and handling systems for Heathrow Airport Limited.
The project, which has been awarded through the Heathrow Airport Limited Delivery Integrator Framework to which Balfour Beatty was appointed in 2014, will involve upgrading and installing baggage screening and handling systems at Heathrow’s eastern baggage facility.
The Company will utilise its technological expertise across the project including the latest Building Information Modelling techniques to define the most efficient approach to design, manage logistics and to interface with live airport operations.
Leo Quinn, Balfour Beatty Group Chief Executive, said: “This contract award is testament to the strength of the partnership we have developed with Heathrow Airport Limited over the last 17 years. The UK aviation sector is a core market for Balfour Beatty and we are delighted to play our part in helping Heathrow maintain its position as a leading travel hub and supporting local employment.”
