Macau Airport resurfacing for Mott MacDonald

NCE stock airports

Mott MacDonald has been appointed on the Macau International Airport runway overlay project.

The company will design overlay for the airport’s 3.36km concrete runway. The intention is to develop the runway’s strength and deal with an increase in traffic.

The airport serves 30 airlines flying to 44 destinations. It receives 5.8M passengers and 30,000t of cargo per year, which represents 2,986 take-offs and landings at the airport.

Mott MacDonald will provide quantity surveying, design, condition surveys and tender documents for the construction project.

“As Macau is a 24-hour airport, the improvement works will be carried out between flights during the night when traffic is less frequent. The runway will then need to be restored to full runway operations in time for peak daily aircraft movements, leaving only a short window for the contractor to carry out their works,” said Mott MacDonald’s project director Jason Wong.

“Our international experience on airport projects such as Hong Kong International Airport and understanding of our client’s needs were both key factors in securing this commission. This project will further reinforce our position as one of the key players in the Asia-Pacific aviation sector,” he added.

The project is scheduled for completion in 2018.
