Canada’s SNC-Lavalin Group has joined the HOK+Arup team, which includes certified companies selected to provide on-call architecture-engineering (AE) services for Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).

LAWA owns and operates Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Van Nuys Airport (VNY) in California.

The HOK+Arup joint venture team comprises 47 partners, including 30 small, local and minority businesses.

LAWA appointed HOK+Arup as the principal architect and principal engineer for the planning and outlining capital investment projects within the next three years.

With a single, consolidated on-call vehicle to support large and small projects across LAX and VNY, LAWA aims to create a streamlined and cost-effective way to upgrade the airports.

LAWA chief development officer Bernardo Gogna said: “As our $14bn capital improvement programme continues to reinvent the LAX experience, bringing all of the experts in planning, architecture, and engineering under one umbrella will create efficiencies as we look at how to conduct these important infrastructure projects while providing opportunities for local businesses and workers to help build a better LAX.”
