Grimshaw have been chosen as the concept designers for Heathrow’s expansion.
The Airport says this sends the clear signal to the Government that Heathrow is “a ready-to-go, privately financed infrastructure project”.
Grimshaw beat off Zaha Hadid, HOK and Benoy to win the contract.
This follows on from the announcement of Arup, CH2M, MACE and Turner & Townsend as Programme Client Partners in March. They have been tasked with ensuring the programme is delivered to the highest industry standards in planning, innovation and quality.
Heathrow say Grimshaw were successful in the competitive tender process not only for their concept designs, which “pushed the boundary of what an airport could and should be”, but also for their “unique ideas around how Heathrow could be expanded in a sustainable but affordable way”.
Grimshaw have also produced a fly through of the new central terminal area.
