Kilnbridge has been hired to complete the civil works for the terminal as part of a £500m development programme at the airport.

It is thought to be the largest contract the company has won this year. The new building will be 51,000 square metres and take three years to erect.

Peter Adams is chief development officer for London City Airport.

"Our contract with Kilnbridge, which has an incredible track record for employing locally, recruiting apprentices and utilising a local supply chain, is fundamental to ensure this vital stage of work is done sustainably," he said.

As part of its work in the borough, the airport is helping run the annual Royal Docks Meet the Buyer, where local contractors can meet customers face-to-face on July 25.
