Dublin Airports Authority (daa) has selected the joint venture (JV) Sisk/Lagan for the Dublin Airport (DUB) airside and landside civil engineering framework valued at over $360 million (325 million euros).
The airside and landside Lot 1 framework includes projects to improve pavement, drainage and electrical systems at airport gate platforms, parking stands, terminals, aprons , taxiways and general airfield campus.
daa’s Director of Infrastructure, Ultan McCloskey, said: “Dublin Airport plays a vital role in connecting Ireland to the world and daa has an ongoing need to invest in our infrastructure to accomplish this mission.
“We look forward to partnering with construction and civil engineering leaders who have the people, processes and best practices to support our existing internal teams.
“Working with Sisk/Lagan Joint Venture (JV) to undertake our airside and landside civil works, will ensure that we collectively deliver the required capital investment program across Dublin Airport.”
The framework is part of daa’s Capital Investment Program 2020+ (CIP 2020+) for Dublin Airport. It aims to carry out medium term development work in line with the policies of the Irish Government.
Sisk/Lagan is a joint venture between John Sisk & Son (Sisk) and Lagan Aviation and Infrastructure (Lagan).
John Sisk & Son CEO Paul Brown said: “Sisk/Lagan JV are delighted to have been selected by daa to complete the Airside and Landside Lot 1 framework at Dublin Airport.
“Sisk is proud to have delivered 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.
