The UK Government today officially endorsed the expansion of Heathrow Airport, for which Grimshaw is the concept architect of the Heathrow Vision →.
After being appointed over a number of high profile practices in July of this year, the commissioning was the result of the firm's 'visionary concept designs, which pushed the boundary of what an airport could and should be, but also for their unique ideas around how Heathrow could be expanded in a sustainable but affordable way'.
Grimshaw Partner, Jolyon Brewis issued this statement:
“We are very pleased with the government’s announcement regarding the expansion of Heathrow Airport, and believe this is clearly the best way forward for the country. This decision gives credit to the longstanding quality service the airport provides to its passengers, and recognises the transport hub as a key generator in keeping the UK globally connected.
"We look forward to working with Heathrow on the new development, delivering their bold vision and working towards their ambitious and achievable target of the most sustainable airport hub in the world.”
