A design and build team comprising FCC Construction, Salini Impregilo and Aecom has been selected by Lima Airport Partners (LAP) to implement a major expansion project at Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport (LIM), Peru’s aviation hub.
LAP is the operator of the Jorge Chavez International Airport.
Earlier, LAP signed a 7th Addendum to the LAP Concession Agreement with the Peruvian Ministry of Transport and Communications. It then selected the construction team after the prequalification and request for proposals, a process that took nine months, and brought together global companies in airport construction.
The two infrastructure companies, FCC Construction and Salini Impregilo, will take up the construction of the project, while Aecom will be the principal design lead.
Previously, FCC Construction has worked on international airport projects such as the Passengers Terminal T-1 at the Prat Airport in Barcelona; third landing strip and a new passenger terminal T4 of the Madrid-Barajas Airport; new passenger terminal of the Riga Airport (Latvia); and the Control Tower of El Dorado Airport in Colombia.
Salini Impregilo has participated in international projects such as the expansion of the Bergamo Airport in Italy, construction of the new Sarir Airport in Lybia and the construction of the Santa Elena Airport in Guatemala.
Aecom provides technical services to airport owners, investors and aviation clients. Its earlier projects included construction management of Abu Dhabi’s new Mid-field Terminal; new Pier Design at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam; and architecture and design, engineering, IT and cybersecurity, and programme and construction management services at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
LAP will now plan early works focusing on environmental remediation, topographic and geotechnical services. The intention is to implement infrastructure, complying with the main objectives of construction of the second runway and the new passenger terminal.
LAP has so far invested over $400m in the airport’s infrastructure, including an extra $70m in existing facilities due to delays in the delivery of land required for the expansion programme.
LAP is currently completing refurbishment and expansion projects in the existing passenger terminal building.
