Egis, Projacs win role on King Khalid International Airport project in Saudi Arabia
September 07, 2020 – Engineering services provider Egis and its subsidiary Projacs have secured a contract from Riyadh Airports to project management consultancy services for airside projects at King Khalid International Airport (KKIA).
Riyadh Airports manages and operates King Khalid International Airport (KKIA), located in Riyadh, the capital city of Saudi Arabia.
Currently, Riyadh Airports is working on a project to upgrade KKIA airside infrastructure, adding new services and facilities.
Under the contract, Egis and Projacs will serve as project management consultants for design review, construction management and supervision of new airside infrastructure.
The services include the review and approval of contractors’ technical deliverables relating to infrastructure, airfield ground lighting (AGL), NAVAIDS and improvement of baggage handling systems at Terminals 3 and 4.
The work will include the redevelopment of the airside infrastructure, including the two runways, taxiways, cargo aprons and isolated parking positions.
Egis said that the AGL equipment and systems will be replaced by a LED lighting system with a dedicated IT control system.
Egis aviation executive director Cédric Barbier said: “We have been working at Riyadh Airport for more than six years now, including on equipment and systems operations and maintenance contracts.
“For this particularly large and complex project, we will mobilise a multi-skilled team of around 90 employees whose work will focus on delivering a sustainable development that complies with all the relevant international and national regulations, codes and standards.
“Sustainability, safety and innovation will constitute the governing principles of how this project is managed. A full Program Management system will be deployed accordingly. These construction supervision and management services will help KKIA meet future air traffic needs safely and effectively.”
