Plans for Stansted’s new £150m arrivals terminal have taken a major step forward with the appointment of Mace as the main contractor. Work on the 39,000sq m building is due to start this spring with completion in autumn 2020.
The terminal is the flagship project in the airport’s £600m transformation intended to support future growth and pioneer the next generation of travel at the airport. CEO Ken O’Toole described it as the most critical phase in the programme.
“Stansted’s transformation project is gathering momentum.” He added. “We’ve made fantastic progress so far, but it’s this year when the project starts to take off when work begins on our arrivals terminal.
“The terminal is the most significant contract the airport has awarded as part of this project, and when complete it will provide a first-class, technology enabled, experience for our passengers.”
The new structure will include larger immigration and baggage reclaim areas, a public forecourt and improved access for onward transport options. Stansted will be the only UK airport operating dedicated arrivals and departures terminals.
A fly-through animation has been released showing how Stansted will look after the transformation and how passengers will flow seamlessly through the airport. It can be seen at www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPvpR7qYbzs&t=3s
