CONSTRUCTION firms Carillion, Galliford Try and BAM Construction have been awarded a Manchester Airports contract valued at £500m.

The firms will deliver construction services for the firm’s capital delivery programme across its portfolio, which includes Manchester, London Stansted, East Midlands and Bournemouth airports.

The contract will initially run for three years with the potential for two further 12-month extension periods.

Carillion and Galliford Try are listed on the FTSE 250 and BAM Construction is part of European construction firm the Royal BAM Group.

“The group has doubled in size this year with the acquisition of London Stansted and with a number of major projects due to get underway, we wanted to have a group of partners capable of delivering high-quality engineering and construction work so that we can continue to develop the business,” said Andrew Cowan, chief operating officer for Manchester Airports Group.

“We’ve also selected partners that are capable of covering the wide geographical footprint of our operations.”
