Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has appointed Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, to lead a framework for buildings at Dublin and Cork airports.
The appointment will see Atkins work along with DAA’s in-house design team on a major programme of work over the next five years.
Atkins will deliver a range of services as part of the plan to upgrade terminals and ancillary buildings at both airports. This will include improving retail areas, airline lounges and check-in zones, as well as cargo facilities across the Dublin Airport site, both landside and airside.
Services being provided by include Atkins: strategic infrastructure planning; airport planning and capacity modelling; multi-discipline design; technology/ICT/aviation security; and information management.
Atkins’ appointment to the five-year framework (extendable by four years) builds on a relationship with DAA spanning 15 years, during which it has delivered projects at both airport campuses.
DAA director of infrastructure Ultan McCloskey said: “The coming years will see DAA invest significantly in our piers and terminals at both Dublin and Cork airports to create a more seamless journey for passengers, enhance security and facilitate capacity growth.
“Atkins’ strong global aviation experience of implementing innovative technological solutions at airports around the world, will complement DAA’s in-house technical capabilities, enabling us to meet the infrastructure challenges that lie ahead.”
Brian McKavanagh, framework director at Atkins, said: “This is a really important appointment for Atkins and we very much look forward to building a fully collaborative relationship with DAA. Our focus is to work with DAA to push sustainability and net-zero carbon emissions to the fore whilst benefitting from Atkins global aviation expertise.”
