Stansted seeks green credentials for arrivals terminal

Posted 11 October 2018 · Add Comment

Companies bidding to build London Stansted’s new arrivals terminal are being asked to commit to a range of sustainability and CSR initiatives as part of the project.



The airport has triggered the tender to find a contractor to work on the latest phase of its transformation project. It is investing £600m over the next five years in a new arrivals terminal and reconfiguration of the existing Lord Foster designed terminal into a departures-only facility to transform the experience for millions of passengers and help to unlock the airport’s spare runway capacity.

As part of the tender process prospective bidders are being asked to support the airport’s sustainability and CSR strategy and put forward a range of initiatives that will leave a positive impact on local people and the economy during the construction.

Paul Willis, Programme Delivery Director of the Transformation Programme, said: “Corporate Social Responsibility is at the heart of everything we do at London Stansted and as our £600 million transformation project develops we want potential suppliers to embrace our CSR strategy and commit to making a lasting difference in the areas surrounding the airport. During the tender process we’re asking bidders to demonstrate how they will deliver a range of environmental, economic and education initiatives, using their experience from their own similar successful infrastructure projects.”

The successful bidder will be announced in December with construction work on the 34,000 sqm, three-storey arrivals terminal beginning early next year. The arrivals terminal, designed by Pascall+Watson, is due to open in 2020, with the improvements to the existing terminal completed in 2021.

The airport’s award winning CSR work includes education schemes like its on-site Stansted Airport Employment Academy, Aerozone education centre and the newly opened Stansted Airport College, a first for any UK airport. These trailblazing facilities sit alongside the airport’s graduate and apprenticeship programmes to help people find work and bridge the current skills gap in STEM subjects and provide a pipeline of future talent. The airport also recognises that small businesses make a significant contribution to the local and regional economy and has made commitment to sourcing local goods and services wherever possible.
