Client’s requirements

The various elements of the project comprises new build and refurbishment including;

The project is located in a live airport environment with careful consideration of project phasing and multiple stakeholders. Thought is given to a number of external work layouts to ensure proper provision for traffic and flow of airport vehicles.

Our contribution

To meet the client’s required timescales and drawing on our extensive aviation experience, we were able to mobilise a team very quickly to work immediately following appointment. We firstly undertook an extensive cost check of the existing designs with international bench marks of similar facilities together with value engineering and risk workshops. In parallel, we commenced production of tender documentation which is being procured in different phases.

Making the difference

Our previous experience with DAEP as a client together with the design team and our ability to mobilise a strong team ensured we were familiar with DAEP commercial protocols and processes associated with cost planning, procurement and commercial management. We were able to draw on an extensive pool of resources from the UAE to ensure the client’s procurement programme would be achieved while keeping the project costs updated as the design developed. This commission further strengthens our aviation profile within the region.
