Amsterdam Schiphol hires new team to manage pier and terminal development


Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in the Netherlands has contracted a specialist team to manage the construction of a new pier and terminal.

Once operational, the two new facilities will allow the airport to accommodate an additional 14 million passengers each year.

The specialist team comprises Mace, Arcadis, Royal HaskoningDHV and Aecom DVP.

The new pier and terminal are being developed to boost the competitive position of Mainport Schiphol and address the growing aviation demands.

To be developed as part of Amsterdam Schiphol’s Capital Programme, the construction of the new pier is slated to be completed in 2019, while the new terminal will open in 2023.

The Capital Programme is expected to be a complex project due to space limitations at the airport, which will remain fully operational during the construction.

"The two new facilities will allow the airport to accommodate an additional 14 million passengers each year."

Under the deal, Mace and Arcadis will be responsible for project and construction management of the new pier and terminal, while Royal HaskoningDHV will manage all landside reconstruction work.

Aecom DVP will operate as the project manager for all construction logistics.

Last week, five international teams presented their designs for the construction of the new terminal at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

The teams that qualified to present their designs are Kaan Architects together with Estudio Lamela and ABT, UNstudio in collaboration with HOK and Arup, MVRDV with KPF and Meinhardt, O.M.A. in partnership with WSP I Parsons Brinckerhoff, and S.O.M. with ADPI.

Once all formal procedures are completed, the jury will declare the winning design in early September.
