He said: "A programme the size and complexity of Terminal 5 can really benefit from this. We now look forward to Amicus and our suppliers reaching a satisfactory supplementary projects agreement for Terminal 5."
At the start of the year, Amicus tried to obtain a commitment from BAA that the T5 project would fall under the agreed major projects agreement for large-scale projects.

However, in July BAA said it would draft a supplementary agreement of the deal for the T5 site.
Amicus national construction secretary Paul Corby said he was pleased with the progress that had been made. He said: "We will do everything we can to get the major projects agreement into Terminal 5."
The issue of whether the major projects agreement, or any deal derived from it, is used on other large BAA airport sites is still causing Amicus concern.
