Commissions and competitionsEdit
Pascall+Watson have been regarded as one of the largest aviation architectural practices in the world.
In 2013, Pascall+Watson were appointed to a team along with Zaha Hadid Architects and Atkins to advise the Mayor of London to help develop plans for a multi runway hub airport in the southeast of England.
The consortium of Pascall+Watson, Reynolds, Smith & Hills and Buro Happold was awarded a place on the Architectural and Engineering Framework for Abu Dhabi Airports Company and was selected for the design for the $3bn Midfield Terminal Complex landside support facilities.
In July 2014, Pascall+Watson was commissioned to take over from Bennetts Associates on stations in the western section of the £15 billion Crossrail scheme under a design and build contract. The practice will now deliver detailed design at 14 stations, including Ealing Broadway, as part of a team led by contractor Taylor Woodrow.
In July 2014, Pascall+Watson obtained planning permission for the £100 million redevelopment of Luton Airport. The scheme will include extending the terminal building, increasing retail, circulation and seating areas, while improving access. The redevelopment will see the airports capacity increase from 12 million to 18 million by 2031.
