Dublin Airport Authority (daa) has chosen Sisk/Lagan joint venture (JV) for the Dublin Airport (DUB) Airside and Landside civil engineering framework, which is valued at more than $360m (€325m).

The Airside and Landside Lot 1 framework includes projects to enhance pavement, drainage and electrical systems at the airport’s boarding gate piers, aircraft stands, terminals, aprons, taxiways and the general airfield campus.

daa Infrastructure director Ultan McCloskey said: “Dublin Airport plays a vital role in connecting Ireland with the world and daa has an ongoing requirement to invest in our infrastructure to achieve that mission.

“We are looking forward to working in partnership with leaders in building and civil engineering that have the people, processes and best practice to support our existing in-house teams.

“Working with Sisk/Lagan Joint Venture (JV) to undertake our Airside and Landside civil engineering works, will ensure we collectively deliver the capital investment programme required right across Dublin Airport.”

The framework is part of daa’s Capital Investment Programme 2020+ (CIP 2020+) for Dublin Airport. It is aimed at carrying out development works in the medium term as per policies of the Irish government.

Sisk/Lagan is a JV of John Sisk & Son (Sisk) and Lagan Aviation and Infrastructure (Lagan).

John Sisk & Son CEO Paul Brown said: “Sisk/Lagan JV is delighted to be selected by daa to complete the Airside and Landside Lot 1 Framework at Dublin Airport.

“Sisk has a proud history of delivering first-class civil engineering projects in Ireland. We look forward to beginning our new working relationship with daa, Lagan and local communities to create a positive legacy at Dublin Airport.”   

Last year in January, daa subsidiary Daa International won a contract to operate the new airport at The Red Sea Development Project in Saudi Arabia.
