Etihad seeks consultants for new cargo terminal
Airline seeks cost, project management consultants at expanded airport
Etihad Airways is looking for consultants to build its new cargo terminal.
The company is inviting consultants to submit pre-qualification documents for both project management and cost consultancy roles.
The terminal will be capable of handling more than 2.5mn tonnes of freight a year by 2025 and will be built on land leased from Abu Dhabi Airports Company. It will be built at the East Midfield Support Zone to the new Midfield Terminal Complex currently under construction under a $3bn contract by a joint venture of Arabtec/CCC/TAV.
An advertisement seeking consultants states that they must have experience of relevant projects with a value of more than AED1bn ($272mn).
Both the cost and project management consultants will be responsible for drawing up tender documents for contractors to build the terminal under a design-build brief and assessing bids from contractor consortiums. The project manager will also be responsible for helping Etihad to appoint a consortium, manage the construction process and ensure the project meets defined sustainability standards.
The cost consultant needs to oversee all payment requests, issue monthly reports on budgets and costs and help with value engineering exercises where necessary.
Consultants need to submit documents by 15 October.
