Irish airport operator daa has selected a joint venture of John Sisk & Son and Lagan Aviation & Infrastructure to undertake its Dublin Airport Airside and Landside civil engineering framework, worth over €325m.
The framework consists of projects to upgrade the pavement, drainage and electrical systems at Dublin Airport’s boarding gate piers, aircraft stands, terminals, aprons, taxiways and the general airfield campus, as part of daa’s capital investment programme “2020+” for the facility.
Sisk has previously completed major civil engineering projects in Ireland including Luas Cross City tram line in Dublin and the Limerick Tunnel, and is currently working on the Dunkettle Interchange Upgrade works in Cork.
Lagan Aviation & Infrastructure Limited has completed several recent high-profile airport projects including projects at Ireland West Airport, London City Airport and London Southend Airport.
Ultan McCloskey, Director of Infrastructure at daa, 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.”
Before the pandemic in 2019, Dublin Airport welcomed a record 32.9 million passengers and had flights to more than 190 destinations in 42 countries operated by almost 50 airlines.
