Hemel Hempstead, 19 July 2018 - The Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has appointed BAM Construction to deliver two multi-storey car park (MSCP) schemes under its capital delivery framework with a combined value of approximately £60 million.

In Manchester, the BAM Construction North West is currently constructing a 6,500 space meet and greet MSCP at Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. The value of the scheme is £34 million. The first section of spaces will be delivered by August 2018, with an anticipated completion of April 2019.

The second scheme is at Stansted Airport, where MAG has instructed BAM Construction’s South East team to develop and deliver a design by Pascal and Watson for a 2,500 space MSCP on five upper levels. This scheme is valued at £26 million and is expected to complete in May 2019, having just commenced on site.

The two schemes continue a very productive working relationship between MAG and BAM which has seen 11 previous schemes completed under the Group’s capital delivery framework agreement.

North West Pre-Construction Director Adrian Blackie, who is BAM’s framework lead, said: ‘We have delivered a diverse range of schemes under the MAG framework. This shows our versatility across sectors and our ability to work collaboratively to fulfil the client’s brief. The T1 and T3 multi storey scheme went through a patient design refresh. We were able to assist the client to evolve the design in partnership to get it ready to commence on site and deliver much needed car parking for the summer of 2018.’

Brian Connor, South East Construction Director added: ‘This is a great opportunity for the region to demonstrate its ability to work on an airport scheme and it’s very pleasing to see the confidence that MAG has in BAM now producing work outside Manchester too.’
