WSP has been appointed to four frameworks at Gatwick Airport to support its recently announced five-year Capital Investment Programme.


The professional services consultancy has been successful on three design and engineering framework lots: Medium/High Complexity Design, Low Complexity Engineering (M&E) and Low Complexity Civil & Structures.

WSP’s fourth appointment was on the Professional Services Resource Framework lot, where it will support Gatwick over the next four years with the supply of commercial and project management services.

The aviation team at WSP has been supporting Gatwick on the previous phase of the Capital Investment Programme since 2013, and is now looking forward to being involved in the next exciting five year plan, which will see another £1.15bn invested.

These four framework wins forms a core part of our aviation portfolio and, is testament to the service our dedicated Gatwick team provide. Our growing team are looking forward to delivering further innovation and sustainable solutions at the airport”.
