Heathrow Q6 Framework – Lot 3 Delivery Integrator

Current Projects

The Q6 capital works investment programme focuses on asset replacement, whilst ensuring diverse stakeholder demands from regulators and airlines are met to deliver customer value . Working in a congested, live environment at the world's second busiest airport, we are supporting HAL to operate within competing commercial, regulatory and technical challenges.



Heathrow Airport
Limited (HAL)




2014 - 2019


Design & Build

As Delivery Integrator (DI) of Lot 3 (northern airside and landside), we engage with HAL early in the work package development phase to influence designs, achieving efficiencies and ensuring safe buildability. The construction scope includes upgrading and reconfiguring aircraft stands and taxiways, concrete and asphalt surfacing, building, civil and M&E works. Each discrete Work Package is delivered under a NEC3 Option C contract, with the overall framework management operating under a NEC3 Option F contract.

We facilitate collaborative programme planning alongside HAL and three other DIs; maximised CAPEX efficiency through Early Contractor Involvement (ECI), and designs for optimum, whole-life OPEX value. The development of the capital investment programme was extended throughout the airport, based on the strategies identified by our sister company, Amey, who are also engaged on Q6.

Work Packages delivered so far include Bravo taxiway realignment to cater for a new fleet of A380 aircraft, the Kilo apron development and numerous other critical infrastructure works.

We manage multiple complex interfaces with existing operational infrastructure, other projects and diverse stakeholders, including regulators and airlines. Fluid collaboration and communication between all parties enables teams to work seamlessly as one organisation. We are also actively leading the implementation of HAL’s Sustainable Growth agenda, having launched a 100% electric vehicle fleet across our sites.


  • £33.2m savings delivered overall through innovation and best practice - achieving a 93.8% Strategic Performance KPI and making us the top performing contractor in the Q6 programme
  • We have achieved more than 500,000 RIDDOR-free hours in one year
  • Collaboration with other contractors on the T2B stands contributed to industry-leading production rates of 2,600m3 PQC slipformed in a row and 780m3 hand-lay in a day - now used across the HAL Community
  • We are working with industry leaders to develop a new concrete product for use at the airport, with very low shrinking, low temperature dependency and high compressive and flexural strength

"The arrival of these new electric vehicles is an exciting demonstration of how projects at Heathrow can support our Sustainable Growth priority. I am looking forward to seeing how we can start to move this forward and plant the standard at Heathrow.”

Caroline Sheridan, Heathrow Delivery Integrator, commenting on the launch of Ferrovial Agroman’s 100% electric fleet at Heathrow Q6.
