Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, has been appointed by Dublin Airport Authority (daa) as its multidisciplinary design consultant for the delivery of civil and airfield engineering design services at Dublin and Cork airports.
Under the terms of the 5-year contract Atkins will integrate with daa’s in-house design team to upgrade landside and airside infrastructure including aprons, runways and taxiways, as part of a €2.9bn (£2.5bn) capital investment programme.
The appointment adds to Atkins’ role as multidisciplinary consultant supporting the upgrade of terminals and ancillary buildings at both airports.
Ultan McCloskey, director of Infrastructure at daa, said: “daa continues to prioritise our investment in the enhancement of infrastructure at both Dublin and Cork airports.
“The appointment of Atkins as our civil and airfield engineering design services framework consultant will allow daa to continue our ongoing upgrade of campus infrastructure to meet future demand.”
Henry Poh, Aviation Lead for Atkins Ireland, added: “This is another significant contract for Atkins as we continue to add to a growing portfolio of aviation projects in Ireland and across the world.
“We now look forward to utilising the very latest in data-driven, digital engineering to help daa maximise its investment as it looks to future proof two of Ireland’s most important airports.”
