£150m Bristol Airport Job – Dozen Firms Needed!

Friday, 16th December 2011
  Bristol Airport needs around 12 contractors to deliver its £150m expansion plans for infrastructure works include apron extensions and runway renewals. The selected panel of framework contractors will extend the terminal building; construct new walkways, terminal piers and two multi-storey car parks with the value of construction projects ranging from £2.5m to £20m.     The scheme will also provide on-site renewable energy generation from wind turbines and a biomass facility, which generates heat for the expanded facilities.   Firms have until 12 January to obtain pre-qualification documents from: - http://apron.bristolairport.com/ojeu_notice   The expansion details are: -   1.  Expansion of the Passenger Terminal The existing terminal will be extended to the east and west, doubling the size of the building and delivering increased capacity at security and immigration, and improving passenger comfort levels. 2.  Aircraft Parking Additional space will be required to accommodate aircraft, so the existing apron (the area on which aircraft are parked) will be extended to the east and west. 3.  Walkways Two walkways (or piers) will serve the extended aprons, enabling passengers to walk between aircraft and the terminal building and reducing the use of buses to board and disembark flights. 4.  Additional Car Parking Two multi-storey car parks, one with four levels and one with five levels for 3,850 cars. 5.  Public Transport Interchange Using the top level of the multi-storey car park, a new public transport interchange will provide convenient pick and drop off facilities for buses and coaches. 6 Fuel Storage A new underground storage facility for aviation fuel will be located in the north west corner of the long stay car park. 7.  Office Building A new three-storey administration building, with a floor space of 4,800sq m, will be constructed just to the north west of the expanded terminal. The current administration building will be demolished. The development will be phased to meet the actual passenger demand over time.
