Irish airports operator daa has picked Atkins as multidisciplinary consultant on a five-year engineering services framework for Dublin and Cork airports.

Work includes improving retail areas, airline lounges and check-in zones, as well as cargo facilities across the Dublin Airport site, both landside and airside.

Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, will provide strategic infrastructure planning, capacity modelling, multidiscipline design and other services.

Ultan McCloskey, daa’s infrastructure director, said: “The coming years will see daa invest significantly in our piers and terminals at both Dublin and Cork airports to create a more seamless journey for passengers, enhance security and facilitate capacity growth.”

Brian McKavanagh, Atkins’ framework director, said: “This is a really important appointment for Atkins and we very much look forward to building a fully collaborative relationship with daa. Our focus is to work with daa to push sustainability and net zero carbon emissions to the fore whilst benefitting from Atkins global aviation expertise.”

The new framework win follows the recent collaboration between daa, Colas and Atkins on Cork Airport’s main runway rehabilitation.
