Experts question industry’s capacity to deliver project

Grimshaw was today celebrating MPs’ decision to approve a third runway at Heathrow.

The architect was appointed to masterplan the airport’s expansion in July 2016 and has been working on the project ever since through political oscillations.

Partner Jolyon Brewis said: “We believe that this expansion is needed, and that it will be delivered with careful regard for its impacts on local communities and the wider world. Grimshaw is proud to be part of a team designing an expanded Heathrow that will set new benchmarks for innovation and sustainability in airports.”
