Ground on the terminal is due to be broken in spring this year and is scheduled for completion by autumn 2020.

Airport bosses say it is the flagship project in a £600 million transformation which will support its future growth.

To celebrate the announcement, an animated video has been released howing what the airport will look like following the transformation.

Stansted chief executive Ken O’Toole said: "I’m delighted to welcome Mace on board as we now focus on the most critical phase in the transformation of London Stansted.

"Mace has a great track record of delivering major projects like this on time, on budget and to the highest quality.

"London Stansted’s transformation project is really gathering momentum.

"We’ve made fantastic progress so far, but it’s this year when the project starts to take-off when work begins on our arrivals terminal.

"The terminal is the most significant contract the airport has awarded as part of this project, and when complete it will provide a first-class, technology enabled, experience for our passengers."
