American engineering company AECOM has been awarded a contract worth an estimated $100m to deliver programme management and construction management (PM/CM) services at the Dallas / Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport in Texas, US.
The five-year contract comprises federally and non-federally funded airfield improvements, building projects and landside developments.
Under the terms of the deal, AECOM will deliver full project lifecycle services to the airport's design, code and construction department.
The services will include programme, project, design and construction management, as well as contract administration, public outreach and technical support.
AECOM chairman and CEO Michael S. Burke said: “We are very proud of our long history of working with the Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport and being a part of their most important and iconic programmes.
“The confidence shown by DFW in selecting AECOM as their PM / CM partner for the next five years reflects the collaborative relationship we’ve worked hard to build together and AECOM’s in-house strengths in aviation architecture and engineering.”
Of the total contract value, 40% is expected to be subcontracted to disadvantaged business enterprises (DBEs) by AECOM in a bid to promote their participation.
The company offered assistance on DFW’s first master development plan in the 1980s, and has been serving as the airport's consultant for more than 30 years
AECOM will continue to lead a joint venture team managing design services for the renovation works, which are currently in progress at Terminals B and E of DFW.
The redevelopment is part of DFW International Airport’s $2.7bn terminal renewal and improvement programme.
