Contractor appointed to construction framework for major airport projects

Rok has been appointed to a BAA framework to perform building work and refurbishments each worth between £2m and £20m on UK airports.

The company said its appointment to the Commodity Build Framework could be worth as much as £130m over a five-year period.

Rok is already part of a BAA framework for smaller refurbishment projects, but this new contract will see it provide building and maintenance services on larger projects at airports such as Heathrow, Stansted, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Rok chief executive Garvis Snook said: “BAA quite rightly sets extremely high standards for its suppliers and we are pleased that we are able to meet and often exceed these. It is great news for all of us that our work has been extended by this new framework.”
