Arcadis has signed two new aviation contracts in Latin America for a total of $23m, with the aim of expanding its aviation and infrastructure presence in the region.

As part of the contracts, the asset design and consultancy firm will cover a range of aviation services, such as planning, conceptual design, engineering, business advisory, and programme and project management.

"Arcadis' global expertise, alongside the local knowledge and experience, has led to these project wins, supporting our continued growth in the Latin American market."

The larger of the two contracts will see Arcadis provide design and engineering consulting services to Peru's Jorge Chávez International Airport, which is slated to undergo expansion. The airport will receive a new terminal, a new runway, new aprons and a complete retrofit. Its existing terminal will also be expanded.

The other contract involves project management consulting services for the development of Brazil's Catarina Airport, which is being renovated to meet the rising passenger traffic in the country.

A team of experts from Arcadis' facilities in Brazil, Chile, Peru and the UK will come together to plan and design services for the development of Jorge Chávez International Airport.

Arcadis CEO for the Latin American region Manoel Antonio Avelino said: "Following the successful delivery of project management consulting services to Brazil's largest airport a few months ago, Arcadis' global expertise, alongside the local knowledge and experience, has led to these project wins, supporting our continued growth in the Latin American market."
