Spanish construction company Ferrovial said that its Ferrovial Construction team would offer programme management services for John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York, US.

The team will serve as an in-house entity to oversee the delivery of the project for Ferrovial Airports.

Ferrovial Construction North America Engineering Services team will serve as the project management office’s (PMO) technical area lead.

The PMO technical team will have a total of 18 members.

This team will be responsible for executing day-to-day activities of design and construction, as well as serving as the principal point of contact with the design and build (DB) contractors.

It will work closely with DB contractors to focus on new delivery methods that would reduce cost and risk.

Ferrovial said that its JFK airport team would forge a strong relationship with the Port Authority and also coordinate with airline users, concessions manager and terminal tenants on the design and construction.

Scope of work also includes maintenance of risk register for cost and schedule, tracking risk owner and listing mitigation strategies.

In addition, it will review and monitor DB’s plans for safety and security, as well as maintain and improve the schedule for the project.

Ferrovial Construction project manager Guillermo Ripado said: “The opportunity to leverage our technical project management expertise to ensure optimum project delivery for one of the world’s most recognised and travelled airports is a high point for our company.

“Overseeing the construction of the New Terminal One will allow us to showcase Ferrovial Construction’s depth and breadth of services and will undoubtedly open the door to future opportunities for our business units in leading and managing complex, large-scale projects.”

In June, Ferrovial reached a deal for stake acquisition in New Terminal One (NTO), a consortium responsible for designing, constructing and operating the new Terminal One at JFK International Airport.
