  • Hoare Lea, as mechanical and electrical consultants;
  • Atkins, as aviation security in airport development consultant.

Jason Millett, Chief Executive Officer, Mace Consult, said: “It’s fantastic to be delivering a project which will have such a significant impact on levelling-up the UK through job creation and enhanced connectivity.

In turn, we aim to continue supporting the aviation sector’s path to recovery post-pandemic.”
