Our Involvement

BCEGI has been an equity and construction partner in the £800m Airport City project at Manchester Airport since 2013.

Working alongside Manchester Airports Group, Carillion PLC, the Greater Manchester Pension Fund, we are instrumental in offering development management advice on a pre-construction basis, on what is one of the biggest joint venture investments in the UK.

A committed and proud part ambassador for Airport City and the wider region, we were key in leading the China Roadshow in June 2014 and we see our involvement as a crucial gateway to driving further investment from the East.

ALPHA, Airport City


In our capacity as official construction partner to Airport City, BCEGI have started work on ALPHA, the second large-scale industrial unit to be built on-site. This latest addition to Airport City’s Global Logistics district, which sits to the south of Manchester Airport, will offer 130,000 sq ft of new-build logistics space designed to meet occupier demand for small to medium units from 17,500 to 35,000 sq ft, all arranged in a single terrace.


The Global Logistics site itself comprises 70 acres of land that has been master planned to provide 1.4m sq ft of logistics space and is already home to the brand new and bespoke DHL Express facility, which totals 37,308 sq ft. ALPHA is being speculatively developed by Airport City and is scheduled for completion in early 2016.

Chief Executive, Manchester Airports Group

“BCEGI has been a fantastic partner to do business with and it was clear from the outset their team shared our vision for Airport City. They were also integral to the delivery of our China Roadshow in 2014, helping lead our delegation across five cities in five days. This dedication to the project means they have become great ambassadors for Manchester and the wider region, and we hope to see further investment as a result of their commitment and growing influence.”
