22 May 19 Hochief subsidiary CPB Contractors has been chosen as preferred contractor for a NZ$200m (£102m) contract at Auckland Airport in New Zealand.

The company, which is part of Hochtief’s Cimic Group, will construct an additional taxiway and extend an existing one as well as building six remote stands as part of the airport’s major capital works programme.

CPB Contractors managing director Juan Santamaria said: “We look forward to building a close ongoing relationship with Auckland Airport and to delivering this important infrastructure project   efficiently and to the highest safety standards.”
