June 2018

Sharjah Airport Authority (SAA) has signed three agreements worth approximately Dh100 million ($27.2 million) for the ongoing comprehensive expansion of its airport, a media report said.

The contracts include the award of consultancy services to ADP Ingénierie, a French company that specialises in airport architecture and engineering, reported Emirates news agency Wam.

According to the agreements, ADP Ingeniere will be responsible for design and construction supervision of the Sharjah International Airport (SIA) expansion project.

Core Engineering Consultancy has been appointed to oversee and manage the demolition of existing affected structures, while the design-build of a new sewage treatment plant was awarded to Metito Overseas.

ADP Ingénierie will provide consultancy services to the project management team during the design and implementation phase in order to achieve the targeted passenger handling capacity in the expansion programme and the level of service set by SIA.

Core Engineering Consultancy will provide consultancy services for the design, construction and supervision of professional services for the new GSE vehicle maintenance facility, SAA Department of Purchasing and Engineering Building Compass, aircraft hardstands with the addition of 12 remote aircraft hardstands apron pads, inbound road network and supervision for the demolition of existing affected structures.

Metito Overseas will undertake the design-build of the new sewage treatment plant and associated works, an effluent processing and treatment facility with a capacity of 3,000 cu m per day and provisions for future expansion to 4,500 cu m per day.

Parsons Overseas was appointed by SIA in May 2017 as project and programme manager of the expansion programme which is estimated to cost Dh1.5 billion ($408 million). The expansion, being implemented over several phases, includes constructing new terminals for arrivals and departures, as well as aircraft hardstands and connecting them to the existing building, and constructing roads to the airport.
