Major revamp for Bristol Airport

The latest plans for the expansion and renovation of Bristol International Airport have been announced, with the facility set to be enlarged to fulfil the needs of up to ten million passengers annually in the coming years.

A total of 13 contractors and civil engineering partners have been announced by the airport's management, with the project set to include the delivery of new office accommodation for airport staff, enhanced public transport infrastructure in the vicinity of the facility, increased parking capacity and of course, expansion of the airport terminal itself.

Delivery of a new underground fuel storage facility for the airport will also be of major importance to increasing passenger numbers and the volume of flights that can utilise the airport in the years to come.

Those firms that have been lucky enough to be selected to play a part in the ambitious plans for the airport include Kier Group, ISG Pearce, Morgan Sindall, Encon, Sisk, Willmott Dixon, ER Hemmings, McAleer & Rushe, Volker Fitzpatrick and Farrans, among others.

ISG regional managing director John Rawlinson said: "Securing a coveted place on one of the region's most highly anticipated development frameworks is a major success for the business."

The new expansion project is forecast to take approximately four years to complete and is expected to cost £150 million.

Elsewhere, international development firm Argent recently celebrating a contract coup of its own, securing the coveted £450 million Paradise Circus renovation scheme in Birmingham.

Argent senior project director Rob Groves said at the time: "The redevelopment of Paradise Circus has the potential to make the most significant impact on the city centre for a generation.

"The site's combined qualities of its central location and historic landmarks creates an unrivalled opportunity to create a sustainable, first-class environment that will transform this key part of Birmingham city centre."
