Amsterdam Schiphol Airport has awarded cost management for its new terminal and pier to Turner & Townsend and IGG.
Turner & Townsend and IGG have won the contract to provide cost management for an expansion to the main international airport in the Netherlands.
The two companies will take responsibility for cost control on all construction work for the new terminal and pier.
Scheduled for completion in 2023, the terminal is to be sited next to the air traffic control tower and will join the existing terminal building.
It has been designed to take 14M passengers a year, an increase that raises Schipol’s total passenger capacity to 70M in total per year.
The pier is designed to take multiple wide and narrow-body aircraft, and is scheduled for completion in 2019.
Schiphol Area A project director Gerard Geurtjens said: “IGG/Turner & Townsend was the strongest bidder and we’re reassured by the consultancy’s reputation working on some of world’s largest aviation projects. Amsterdam Airport Schiphol needs additional space in order to accommodate and facilitate the growth in both the number of passengers and air transport movements.”
“With the development of a new pier and terminal, Schiphol is investing in the capacity and quality of Mainport Schiphol, as well as strengthening the airport’s international competitive position.”
“At the same time, Schiphol is working hard to improve accessibility to the airport through investments in the public transport hub, Schiphol Plaza and the Jan Dellaertplein.”
