Heathrow after 'signature architect' for third runway building


Appointment will be made in coming years

Phil Wilbraham, Heathrow’s expansion programme director, told BD: “We will have a signature architect that will lead on the building.”

The controversial plans to enlarge the airport were approved by MPs last summer and are currently out for another round of public consultation, but there remains a huge amount of opposition, largely on environmental grounds. One of five legal challenges it is facing began this week. It is due to go to the planning inspector next year.
