London, 5th September, 2018
SPIE UK has secured an M&E Framework agreement with Gatwick Airport Limited. Under the agreement, SPIE has also been selected as Principal Contractor for the chiller replacement works at the airport. This will be the first contract secured under the 4-year contract which is valued at £2m per annum.
SPIE successfully won the tender for the Framework agreement based on the organisation’s experience as an M&E engineering-led principal contractor in the aviation sector, having also previously delivered M&E infrastructure schemes at Gatwick whilst complying with the client’s operating standards.
The chiller replacement works include the replacement and upgrade of an air-cooled chiller, associated pumps and BMS controls located on the roof of Gatwick Airport’s office building, known as Jubilee House.
The contract was awarded based on both SPIE’s commercial and technical submission and signals the continuation of the company’s long-standing relationship with GAL. It also consolidates SPIE’s position in the market and as a leading player amongst competitors within the Framework itself.
Steven Farmer, Divisional Managing Director, at SPIE UK comments, “We are delighted to be working with Gatwick Airport Limited once more as a trusted partner and look forward to the interesting range of works we will be undertaking under the new Framework.”
Jon Arthurs, Project Manager at Gatwick Airport Limited, added, “Time and time again, we are impressed by the innovative solutions that SPIE brings to the table, and it was no different for the M&E Framework tender. Given their solid track record in the aviation sector, we are fully confident that SPIE will deliver the various works to the highest standard, on time and on budget.”
