Aecom will carry out the work in association with Hill International as the prime sub-consultant.
“We are very pleased to have been selected by Abu Dhabi Airports Company to participate in this prestigious project, which is a significant investment in the Emirate’s growth and its position as the capital of the United Arab Emirates,” said Aecom chairman and chief executive officer John Dionisio.
Under the five-year contract, which starts immediately, Aecom will take responsibility for many aspects of the construction of the Midfield Terminal Building, which includes a 7.5-million-square-foot terminal building as well as the required associated airside and landside infrastructure.
The terminal building is scheduled to open during 2017.
Passenger facilities will also include more than 296,000 square feet of airline hospitality lounges, a transit hotel and a heritage and culture museum. The terminal will be able to handle more than 30 million passengers and will have sufficient piers to accommodate 65 aircraft, including the Airbus A380.
