Businesses are being invited to bid for contracts worth up to £500m, as part of Manchester Airport’s 10-year transformation programme.

The airport has issued a contract notice for the Terminal Two transformation phase, and includes the design and construction of an extension to the existing building, more than doubling its current size. The contract represents the majority of the works associated with the programme.

The proposed works comprise include:

  • New baggage factory
  • New piers
  • New terminal extension and upgrade of existing forecourt
  • Associated access roads
  • Alterations to existing terminal
  • New multi-storey car parks
  • Site clearance
  • Associated services diversion

Brad Miller, Manchester Airport Transformation Programme (MAN-TP) Director, said: “After a successful launch in June this year and an extensive consultation period it is exciting to enter the next phase of the project.

“This contract notice and invitation to participate, is the single biggest element of the whole £1bn project that spans ten years, and we are expecting to see a range of high calibre companies put their names forward.

“Over the next decade, the airport will continue to develop as a global gateway for the UK, directly to and from the North, and these enhancements will enable us to further adapt, modernise and transform the customer service experience we are able to offer.”
