Infrastructure consulting firm AECOM will provide programme management services for an airport in Qatar.

AECOM will oversee the design and manage construction for Cargo Terminal 2 and Amiri Flight Facilities at Hamad International Airport, as part of the Qatar Company for Airports Operation and Management’s infrastructure expansion programme.

Over a six-year period, AECOM will carry out project management and construction management of the new cargo terminal and ancillary supporting buildings that include a veterinary inspection centre, central utility plant and infrastructure diversions.

Additionally, a cargo bridging facility will be created to accommodate predicted overflow from Cargo Terminal 1. The cargo bridging facility will be prioritised for completion ahead of the start of the FIFA World Cup Qatar in November 2022.

“We are excited to support the execution of Qatar Company for Airports Operation and Management’s infrastructure expansion plans by developing these important facilities at Hamad International Airport,” said Lara Poloni, AECOM’s president. “We have a longstanding history in the country and are looking forward to leveraging our significant local knowledge and extensive aviation experience to successfully manage this programme.”

Hamed Zaghw, AECOM’s chief executive for the Middle East & Africa, added: “The project will enhance the delivery and processing of supplies and important cargo to Qatar, helping to meet the demands of its growing economy while significantly enhancing its global freight operations.”
