Mace wins role on Dutch pier and terminal project
August 02, 2017 – Mace, a consultancy and construction firm, has won an order to manage the delivery of the new pier and terminal at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, as part of the Schiphol Capital Programme.
In partnership with the Dutch consultancy company Arcadis, Mace will be responsible for project management and construction management on the two projects.
Mace is working with the firm in a joint venture (JV) to manage the delivery of the new pier, while the terminal delivery management will be overseen by Mace acting independently, with Arcadis on board as a sub-consultant.
Mace-Arcadis JV will deliver the new pier that will feature a three-storey building with 50,000 sq m of occupied space on various levels. The pier will include five wide-body gates on both its north and south side, with the south side also able to be used by six narrow body aircraft. The pier is expected to be operational in December 2019.
The new terminal, which will be delivered by Mace with support from Arcadis, will feature a departure and arrival hall, as well as operational, commercial and baggage handling facilities. It is expected to become operational by 2023.
The size of the terminal is about 100,000 sq m with a capacity of 14 million departing, transferring and arriving passengers every year.
Mace COO for consultancy Jason Millett said: “Mace has a proud record of delivery in the aviation sector, as well as a growing global reputation as a major British exporter of construction services.
“The expansion of capacity at Schiphol is one of the largest and most high profile aviation projects in the world, so we’re thrilled that they have chosen to appoint ourselves and Arcadis to deliver the next stage of their growth.
“Realistically, there aren’t many companies in the world that are able to deliver complex and challenging infrastructure programmes like this. That Schiphol has chosen a British construction company for this role represents is a big vote of confidence in our national ability to deliver at this level.”
