New Civil Engineer - Thomas Johnson

16 April 2024

Farrans Construction has begun construction works for Phase 1 of the £100M Leeds Bradford Airport terminal regeneration.

The privately funded £100M development, known as LBA:Regen, will transform Leeds Bradford Airport’s existing terminal building into a modern, efficient and sustainable facility, aiming to enhance passenger experience and supporting Yorkshire’s economic growth.

As part of the project, Farrans will construct a 9,500m2, three-storey extension to the existing terminal, alongside significant refurbishment of the current facilities. When completed, passengers will benefit from the creation of additional aircraft stands, more seating, faster security, new shops and eateries, a larger baggage reclaim area and immigration hall and improved access for passengers with restricted mobility.

The phase of the project Farrans has just begun includes the construction of the new UK Border Force immigration facility and international baggage reclaim hall, as well as expanded retail and international departure lounge facilities.

Phase 2 will include an enlarged central search and check-in areas, alongside larger duty free, retail and arrivals areas.

Completion of construction work for both phases of the project is estimated for some time in 2026.
