Mott MacDonald wins Costa Rica airport job

Costa rica air

Mott MacDonald has won the contract to lead a site study, design and masterplan for a new international airport in Costa Rica.

Working for the Centro American Corporation of Air Navigation Services (COCESNA), the consultants will provide technical, environmental and financial advice. Planning will involve traffic forecasting, infrastructure layout and terminal design.

The contract is for a year and at the end Mott MacDonald will provide a plan for the infrastructure and finance needed to carry out the project.

The airport will be at Orotina, Alajuela, and is scheduled for completion in 2026.

Project director Horacio Rossi said: “Our experience consulting on Mariscal Sucre International Airport (in Ecuador) gave us specific expertise in developing new airports on greenfield sites, as well as relocating a country’s main airport due to existing site expansion constraints. We are delighted to lead an integrated team on this project, which includes FSA, Enroute and Gensler.”
