Mace lands two contracts on Schiphol expansion

Mace has won contracts to manage the delivery of a new pier and a new terminal at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands.

It will be responsible for project management and construction management on the two projects, working in collaboration with the Dutch consultancy company Arcadis. Mace is working with the firm in a joint venture to manage the delivery of the new pier, while the terminal delivery management will be led by Mace acting independently, with Arcadis on board as a subconsultant.

The new pier, which will be delivered by a newly formed Mace-Arcadis joint venture, will consist of a three-storey building with 50,000m2 of occupied space on various levels. The pier will include five wide-body gates on both its north and south side, with the south side also able to be used by six narrow body aircraft. The ambition is to deliver the structure of the pier for operational use in December 2019.

The new terminal, to be delivered by Mace with support from Arcadis, consists of a departure and arrival hall, and operational, commercial and baggage handling facilities. The ambition is for the new terminal to be operational by 2023. The size of the terminal is approximately 100,000m2 and it will have a capacity of about 14 million departing, transferring and arriving passengers every year.

Jason Millett, Mace’s chief operating officer for consultancy, said: “The expansion of capacity at Schiphol is one of the largest and most high profile aviation projects in the world, so we’re thrilled that they have chosen to appoint ourselves and Arcadis to deliver the next stage of their growth.

“Realistically, there aren’t many companies in the world that are able to deliver complex and challenging infrastructure programmes like this. That Schiphol has chosen a British construction company for this role represents is a big vote of confidence in our national ability to deliver at this level.”
