Balfour Beatty jv wins £64M Dubai Airport contract

Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects has awarded a Balfour Beatty joint venture a £64M mechanical and electrical engineering contract at Dubai Airport .

The BK Gulf joint venture between contractor Balfour Beatty and DUTCO group will work on the new concourse facility at Dubai International Airport as part of a programme to increasing its capacity from between 60-75M passengers per year to 90M by 2018.

“We are always looking to deliver the best possible results for our clients in the most efficient and sustainable way we can,” said Balfour Beatty chief executive designate Andrew McNaughton. “This project is no exception where we have a design solution that will mean the new facilities we install will be powered by renewable energy through photovoltaic and solar panels.”

BK Gulf’s contract is to install the electrical, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing and fire protection systems for the new concourse. The services will be constructed and offsite before being moved into the work area.

Work on the site has already begun and is due for completion by the end of 2014.
