Arcadis to work on Brazil airport

Consultant Arcadis today announced that its Brazilian subsidiary Arcadis Logos has signed a contract to provide project management for 27 months for the first phase of the expansion of the Guarulhos Airport, in São Paulo.

Guarulhos is the largest airport in Brazil with 25M passengers per year. The expansion project is part of the infrastructure investment program launched by the Brazilian Federal Government to cope with the increasing passenger demand, now boosted by the two upcoming major sports events: the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games.

The client is the private company Concessionária do Aeroporto Internacional de Guarulhos, is owned by private investors (51%) and the state-owned company Infraero (49%), which formed after the recent competition for the airport concession.

The first phase of the BRL$3bn (£912M) project is scheduled to be accomplished by the beginning of 2014 and involves building a new terminal to increase the airport’s total handling capacity from the current 30M to 60M passengers per year as well as improving parking lots, runways, yards and access roads.
