New Zealand-based Hawkins Infrastructure and its joint venture partner Pacific Building Solutions (PBS) have secured a contract to modernise Fiji’s Nadi International Airport.

The 16-month project is expected to cost F$50m ($27.16m) and includes the demolition, construction, refurbishment and modernisation of the airport.

The Nadi International Airport modernisation project will increase the floor space by 4,000m², improve accessibility and passenger flow, as well as feature a new check-in building, additional counters and carousels, higher ceilings and new safety systems.

The project is part of a large modernisation programme being implemented by the Fiji Government and Hawkins will act as the main building contractor for the project.

"Through working closely with PBS, we will encourage local involvement in the project."

Under the collaborative partnership, Hawkins will offer its airport knowledge and skills, while PBS will provide local resources and an understanding of Fiji’s weather and construction processes.

Hawkins construction manager Paul Youngman said: "This is a great opportunity for Hawkins to bring our experience and knowledge of working in live airport environments and share that with local company PBS.

"Through working closely with PBS, we will encourage local involvement in the project."

Work on the project is scheduled to begin on 15 July and expected to be completed by 15 October 2015.

According to the company, the airport will remain fully operational during construction.
