Balfour Beatty using BIM in £180m Heathrow deal

Balfour Beatty are celebrating after bagging a deal with Heathrow Airport worth a staggering one-hundred-and-eighty million pounds.

Over the next three years, the infrastructure giants will act as programme manager and contractor for the London airport’s Terminals 1, 2 and 4, being responsible for the maintenance and replacement of various assets such as escalators, CCTV, lifts, passenger conveyors, access and air conditioning systems.


These projects can range from being worth £500,000 to £70 million and should the framework need to be extended, an additional two years worth another £70 million is a possibility.


Balfour Beatty’s Executive Chairman Steve Marshall spoke of the company’s plans to optomise 4D BIM. He said:


“I am delighted Balfour Beatty has been appointed to Heathrow’s new style of framework contracts. We have worked in partnership with Heathrow for 15 years and we will continue to bring our leading capabilities in areas such as Building Information Modelling and safety to our work at Terminals 1, 2 and 4; and play our part in helping Heathrow maintain its position as a leading travel hub.”
