Crawley-based companies have been awarded contracts worth a combined total of more than £5 million as part of the redevelopment of London Gatwick’s North Terminal departure lounge.
BP Installations Ltd, based on Crawley’s Manor Royal trading estate, has been appointed as the principal contractor on the project. The role includes full site safety management, new electrical installation, new flooring and new information and display signage installations.
CCI Gatwick Ltd, also located on Manor Royal, will oversee the interior fitout and decorative finishes.
Alison Addy, Head of External Engagement and Policy, London Gatwick said: “Part of our procurement strategy at London Gatwick is to utilise the services of businesses across our local region where possible, supporting local people, making best use of local expertise, and reducing the environmental impact.
“We are delighted to have two local companies so heavily involved in the redevelopment of our North Terminal departure lounge.”
The North Terminal departure lounge is currently undergoing renovation. The project is scheduled to be completed in early 2024 and will see more than £10 million invested in a multitude of improvements, including new flooring, contemporary seating with accessible power points, a sustainable planting scheme, local artwork and improved sightlines and wayfinding.
