A Mott MacDonald and Arup joint venture has been appointed by the Airport Authority Hong Kong to provide full design consultancy services and construction support services for the phase 1 development of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) midfield.
Phase 1 of the project, which is scheduled to be complete in 2015, will construct a new concourse in the midfield area of the airport between the two runways, with 11 bridge-served stands and nine operational stands to meet future demand at the airport.
The joint venture will be supported by architect Aedas, engineer Atkins and a range of other specialist consultants in delivering the new facility.
Arup director for aviation projects in East Asia Ian Taylor said: “We are delighted to take part in the project, helping to mark a significant milestone for the development of HKIA.”
Mott MacDonald managing director for Hong Kong K M Yeung added: “We will continue to maintain a good relationship with the AA; one that extends from the very earliest days of the original airport planning and the lead consultant designing Terminal 1, through to today on numerous assignments.”
Mott MacDonald and Arup have previously worked together on many similar projects, including previous work at HKIA and Heathrow Terminal 5.
