Parsons is awaiting the decision of a contract award relating to planned modernisation works at Kuwait International Airport.
The US-headquartered consultancy has submitted a bid to become programme manager and construction supervisor for the airport’s new terminal.
The company’s bid is currently under consideration, according to Parsons MEA group executive vice president, William C “Bill” Bodie.
“Parsons is looking to become programme manager and construction supervisor for the modernisation of Kuwait International Airport,” Bodie told Construction Week.
“We have submitted our bid for the project; it’s currently under consideration,” he revealed.
Parsons boasts extensive experience within the field of aviation development. The consultancy is currently working as integrated programme manager for Abu Dhabi International Airport’s Midfield Terminal, on behalf of Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC).
The $6bn (KWD1.8bn) modernisation project at Kuwait International Airport will significantly increase capacity at the facility. Following initial works, the Kuwait City airport will be able to accommodate up to 25-million passengers annually.
The new terminal’s design offers the flexibility to increase this figure to 50-million passengers per year, in line with future demand.
