T&T and IGG land cost role for Schiphol expansion

22 Jun 16 A joint venture between Turner & Townsend and IGG has been appointed to act as cost manager for a major project to expand Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.

The project involves construction of a new terminal and pier as well as associated work including extensive changes to the surrounding road network and parking. The team will be responsible for controlling all costs of the construction work for the new terminal and pier.

The new terminal, which is scheduled for completion in 2023,  will be constructed to the south of Schiphol Plaza and will be connected to the existing terminal. It is designed to serve 14 million passengers per year, bringing the total number that use the airport hub to more than 70 million.

The new flexible pier will be located near Cargo Station 1 and is expected to be ready for use in late 2019. Major modifications will need to be carried out on the surrounding road network and existing parking facilities will be relocated. 

 “IGG/Turner & Townsend was the strongest bidder and we’re reassured by the consultancy’s reputation working on some of world’s largest aviation projects,” said Schiphol project director Gerard Geurtjens.
