Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport has selected three Dutch firms to carry out the construction, renovation and maintenance of infrastructure.
The work, which is worth between €2.5 and €3.5bn, will be carried out over the next nine years by BAM, Heijmans and VolkerWessels.
Schiphol has divided the project into six lots, which are currently in the finalisation phase of the tendering process. These are:
- Aircraft stands lot: To be carried out by VolkerWessels’ subsidiaries KWS Infra and VolkerRail
- Landside infrastructure lot: BAM Infra
- Underground infrastructure lot: BAM Infra
- Terminals 1 & 2 lot: Heijmans Utiliteit
- Terminal 3 & Schiphol Plaza lot: BAM Bouw en Techniek
- Runway areas lot: Currently unknown due to "ongoing appeal proceedings", according to Schipol.
The airport says the tendering process was focused on "cost-optimisation, improving operational management, sustainability and the use of digital innovations".
The three selected firms will now begin the realisation phase, with plans being developed with Schiphol over the coming months.
Finalised contracts are due to be signed by the end of 2018, and if all goes to plan, construction will start in April 2019.
