Nine architects and engineers have won places on two frameworks for the £1bn modernisation of Gatwick airport

Atkins, HOK, Jacobs, Morgan Sindall Professional Services and Pascall + Watson are the architects.

Jacobs is also listed as a civil engineering consultant, along with Arup, Halcrow and TPS.

The frameworks will last for three to four years. Projects could include architectural work on the north and south terminals and runway resurfacing, the airport said.

Gatwick added that it was switching to prime contracting, which will “involve the prime design architect or civil engineer taking full accountability for all aspects of the design, including the provision and co-ordination of specialist subconsultants”.
