Hill International to project manage Jeddah's King Abdulaziz International Airport

Hill International has received a contract from the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to provide project management oversight for the $1.5bn (£970M) King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA) improvement in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

The one year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately SAR 14.2 million (£2.4M).

The project will increase capacity of the airport, allowing it to handle a projected annual volume of 70-80 million passengers by 2035. Work includes construction of a new terminal with a capacity of 30 million annual passengers, a transportation center and railway station to accommodate new high speed rail services serving Makkah and Madinah, a new air traffic control complex, taxiways, airside and landside road network, utilities networks and related support buildings.

Hill will be providing project oversight, value engineering and training services during design and construction of the programme.
