Atkins wins contract for land reclamation project at Hong Kong airport

Atkins has been awarded a consultancy service contract for the design of 650 hectares of reclaimed land ahead of the construction of the three-runway system (3RS) at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

Atkins’ scope of works includes the design of the ground improvement works, reclamation, seawalls, re-provisioning works and the extension and modification of existing large box culverts.

The detailed design will be delivered within a tight schedule to facilitate the anticipated award of the main works contract in 2016. Atkins’ services will continue into the construction phase with the provision of design support services.

Atkins’ contract is one of the first detailed design consultancies to be awarded for the 3RS with numerous other design packages expected to be tendered progressively into 2016.

Last year Fugro announced it had been awarded the major ground investigation project around the nearshores of the airport. The £7.2M geotechnical and environmental ground investigation programme was completed in November.

Upon completion of 3RS, the expansion plan will allow the airport to handle an additional of 30M passengers a year by 2030.
