London City Airport is seeking a contractor to undertake the foundation works for a further phase of the airport’s £480M development.
The contract consists of the substructure and concrete works for the Western Energy Centre, Main Terminal and Terminal Extensions.
The piling and deck £85M package for the East Terminal Extension, the New East Pier and the Eastern Energy Centre was awarded to Bam Nuttall in March.
Prequalification papers for this latest foundations work state that the scope includes the design and build of piling, with substructure and concrete works for the piling works including CFA piling, of varying diameter between 300mm to 600mm on land with a number of steel sleeved 1200mm diameter in water with pile caps.
The basement work includes secant piles with ground slabs and precast planks while the existing concrete deck requires demolition and reconstruction, and the existing ground beams and pile caps demolition. The concrete works include grouting for holding down bolt assemblies and in-situ reinforced concrete works to metal decking.
The 36-month contract will be open to tender to four and six contractors and the prequalification questionnaire needs to be submitted by 27 July. The award of the contract is expected in December.
The airport’s development programme will bring improved facilities for customers, an expanded offer of flights, and greater space to accommodate increasing passenger numbers from the current 4.5M to 6.5M.
