Contract signed for Abu Dhabi airport infrastructure
Abu Dhabi Airport Company (ADAC) has signed a contract worth around AED600m (£99m) with the Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) for the construction of infrastructure integral to the airport’s expansion.
HLG will deliver the project across multiple work fronts including airside and landside airport operational areas, within the Midfield Terminal Complex construction site, the East Midfield Terminal area and along the existing E11 Highway at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
“We are proud to have been selected by ADAC to deliver this important project and be part of the development and success of one of the fastest growing airports in the world,” said HLG CEO and managing director José Antonio López-Monís. “The project aligns with HLG’s strategy of targeting large-scale infrastructure opportunities for government clients.”
The group’s scope of works, which will be delivered across five work fronts, include backbone infrastructure installation; mechanical, electrical and plumbing work; and road, bridge and interchange construction.
"The Habtoor Leighton Group produced a competitive tender,” said ADAC chief executive officer Tony Douglas. “It is clear from their submission, and other projects the Group has delivered, that they have the expertise and experience we need to deliver a world-class facility.”
HLG is scheduled to start work this month, with staged completion over the next 18-24 months.
