Amman's Queen Alia reappoints WSP as independent engineer

Amman's Queen Alia International Airport has reappointed WSP, in a joint venture with local Jordanian consultant Consolidated Consultants (CC), as independent engineer for the new €671 million passenger terminal.

The terminal is being built under a public-private partnership (P3) agreement between the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and Airport International Group (AIG), the airport concessionaire.

The WSP + CC joint venture has also been re-appointed by the project financiers, led by the World Banks’ IFC and the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) to provide technical advice and support related to the project financing.

WSP director, Jim Ratliff, comments: “Our re-appointment to this high profile project reflects WSP’s increasing presence right across the aviation sector, from front-end planning to design and environmental consultancy.

"We have worked on several of the world’s largest airports such as the new Hamad International Airport in Doha, which is ongoing, and Heathrow, and Gatwick airports, so this just consolidates our offering.

“In the UK our structures, building services and acoustics teams are helping to further upgrade Heathrow and we have just finished a connectivity study on Leeds Bradford International Airport.”

WSP has been providing independent engineering services at Queen Alia International Airport, as part of WSP + CC, since their initial appointment in December 2007.
