Arcadis to perform project management for the expansion of Sao Paulo Guarulhos Airport

Brazil's São Paulo Guarulhos Airport signed (18-Sep-2012) a contract with ARCADIS' Brazilian subsidiary ARCADIS Logos to provide project management consultancy services for 27 months, for the first phase of the expansion of the airport. The expansion of the largest airport in Brazil is part of the infrastructure investment programme launched by the Brazilian Federal Government to cope with the increasing passenger demand, now boosted by the two upcoming major sports events: the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. The customer for the project is the private company Concessionária do Aeroporto Internacional de Guarulhos S.A., owned by private investors (51%) and the state-owned company Infraero (49%), which formed after the recent competition for the airport concession. The first phase of the BRL3 billion (USD1.5 billion) project is scheduled to be accomplished by the beginning of 2014 and comprises building a new terminal – increasing the airport's total handling capacity from the current 30 million to 60 million passengers p/a – and improving parking lots, runways, yards and access roads. During this phase, ARCADIS Logos will be responsible for Planning, Procurement, Construction Supervision, Executive Design Certification, Quality Control, Health & Safety and Environmental Control. At the peak of activities, a team of 50 ARCADIS professionals will work at the jobsite. [more - original PR]
