Mott MacDonald has been appointed as the consultant for airfield facilities on Hong Kong International Airport’s (HKIA) three-runway system (3RS).

When the work is completed 102M passengers and cargo weighing 8.9M.t will arrive at the airport each year.
“We are proud to continue our longstanding relationship with AAHK and are excited to be maintaining our involvement at HKIA. It follows our successful completion in 2015 as lead consultant for the scheme design of third runway infrastructure and concourse,” said Mott MacDonald aviation director David Mepham. “This latest appointment further reinforces our aviation strength in Hong Kong, which is the technical centre of excellence for airfield work in the Asia-Pacific and Australasia regions.”
Mott MacDonald will work with Atkins on the project, which will develop a new apron pavement, aircraft parking stands, serviced contact gates, ground lighting and a fire training facility.
