San Miguel Corporation (SMC) has selected professional services firm Jacobs to serve as programme management consultant for New Manila International Airport.

New Manila International Airport is one of the Philippines’ largest projects. The $14bn project includes the construction of four runways, a terminal and multiple airport support facilities across 6,200 acres in Bulacan.

The new airport is expected to handle around 100 million passengers a year. It will feature a toll road linking the airport to the motorway.

Construction work for the new airport is scheduled to commence by the end of this year, with the first phase of operations expected to begin in four to six years.

Under the agreement, Jacobs will deliver services during the planning, design and construction phases.

The programme management services offered by the US company will encompass contract development, strategic advisory and project scoping and management.

Jacobs Buildings and Infrastructure Asia Pacific and Middle East senior vice-president and general manager Patrick Hill said: “This is a transformative project for the people of the Philippines, boosting employment opportunities and unlocking trade and tourism potential in the region.

“Our appointment is an opportunity to leverage our significant aviation design and programme management experience to deliver a sustainable and world-class aviation hub that supports the Philippines’ growth aspirations long into the future.”

With 50,000 employees and $12bn revenue, Jacobs provides technical, scientific, professional and construction- and program-management to different organisations.

In August, the Philippines’ Department of Transportation (DoTr) issued a notice of award (NoA) to San Miguel Holdings (SMHC) for the construction of the Bulacan airport.

SMHC will oversee the financing, design, construction, supply, completion, testing and commissioning of the new airport, along with its operation and maintenance.

In May, Manchester Airports Group (MAG) in the UK selected Jacobs to design its new PremiAir terminal.
