Firstco appointed at Gatwick Airport for Specialist Systems at the North Terminal Redevelopment
Firstco have been appointed by Costain as Systems Integrator for the Specialist Systems work at the Gatwick North Terminal Landside Redevelopment
As part of London Gatwick Airports ongoing capital improvement strategy Gatwick Airport Ltd are undertaking a major development project, the North Terminal Landside Redevelopment (NTLR). Works have been split into four sub projects:
NTI North Terminal Interchange. Inter Terminal Transit interchange replacing the existing ITTS Station
NTF North Terminal Forecourt. Moving the existing forecourt to the opposite side of the NTI to improve security and new improved forecourt for passengers.
NTX North Terminal Extension. A multistory extension to the south and a single storey extension to the east of the terminal building to create greater wayfinding space, two new check in zones and new baggage reclaim belts.
MSCP6 Multistory car park 6. A new car park next to the NTI.
The timescales for these works are challenging. NTI and NTF projects are scheduled to be completed in a six month window starting in October 2009 and completing in March 2010. The NTX and MSCP6 projects should complete at the end of 2011. With a projected spend of £133m this is no small investment for Gatwick Airport, which in addition to ongoing capital works, is currently in the middle of a divestment program to separate the airport from BAA and enable its sale and hand-over to new owners.
