UK-headquartered Turner & Townsend, the global programme management and construction consultancy, has won a $10.5 million three-year contract to support the capital programme at Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport.

The consultancy’s role includes estimating, cost management and project scheduling.

DFW’s capital programme includes terminal refurbishment and expansion, new parking garages and overall improvement of the infrastructure to enhance the experience for 63 million passengers each year.

This is the latest addition to the global consultancy’s impressive record and expertise in the aviation sector, which includes integral roles at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport, Heathrow Airport, Hong Kong International Airport, and Abu Dhabi International Airport.

The global consultancy has worked with major airport programmes on every continent, totalling more than 140 projects, valued at $35 billion, in 19 countries.

Tina Millan, vice president, head of aviation USA for
Turner & Townsend said: “We are honoured to be playing such a key role on this significant aviation programme.

“Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is the world’s fourth busiest airport, and with 1,850 flights per day everything has to run like clockwork.

“Our experience in leading complex programmes in live airports will help to deliver the ongoing capital programme while minimising impact on day-to-day operations and allow to plan for future growth.”
