Consultant wins airport role


Turner & Townsend has won a key role on an airport scheme in the Middle East.

The consultancy will provide cost management services for the expansion of Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai.

The firm was appointed by Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects (DAEP) for the scheme.

Work will create a larger immigration hall with 55 control counters; an extended departure area with 91 check-in desks; an extra 12 boarding gates and lounges; a new outbound baggage handling building; additional parking; and new approach roads.

Turner & Townsend said it had worked on more than 140 airport schemes across 19 countries.

Managing director for the Middle East Mike Collings said: “Our experience of delivering complex programmes in live airports will help us run the ongoing expansion while minimising the impact on day-to-day operations, and allow DAEP to plan for future growth.”

Meanwhiel, speaking ahead of the New Civil Engineer Airports conference in London later this weel, Arup director Richard Matthews recently said engineers would have an important role to play in helping airports use data and communications to keep flight schedules running smoothly.

The New Civil Engineer Airports conference will take place at the America Square Conference Centre on 25 and 26 May.

Heathrow strategy director Emma Gilthorpe and Gatwick corporate affairs and sustainability director Charles Kirwan-Taylor will go head-to-head over their rival expansion plans at the event.
