Under the 8-year contract, Aecom will deliver design and project management services for a new baggage handling system and infrastructure to support the expected growth in passenger numbers at T2.
T2, which opened in 2014, is currently supported by the baggage system at the now closed T1.
The Future T2 Programme will deliver a new integrated baggage handling system within the existing T2 site.
As lead designer, Aecom will be responsible for leading and integrating the design of all the various work streams that the programme will deliver, including demolishing T1 and creating new infrastructure for a permanent T2 baggage system.
Aecom will act as integrator to bring in appropriate suppliers and partners when and where they can add the best value.
Richard Gammon, Aecom managing director, Aviation, said: “The programme’s delivery model enables Aecom and Heathrow to build one collaborative team focused on finding the best and most innovative solutions for this multifaceted programme. ”
