Royal HaskoningDHV has been awarded a multi-year landside project management contract as part of Schiphol’s Capital Programme to significantly expand Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The landside infrastructure improvements, together with the new pier and terminal, will create capacity for a further 14 million passengers a year.

Enhancing the competitive position of Schiphol

Schiphol has expansive growth plans in order to fulfil its ambition of becoming Europe’s preferred airport and is therefore creating a new pier and terminal. The new pier is expected to be open for use in 2019 and the new terminal in 2023.

The expansion will strengthen the competitive position of Mainport Schiphol, allowing it to keep pace with the growth in aviation and provide more facilities for passengers, airlines and service providers.

Royal HaskoningDHV will be responsible for project management and construction management for all landside reconstruction work which includes additional parking capacity, a temporary connection to the surface level to increase capacity and expansion of elevated roads for Kiss & Ride and service roads to the new terminal.

The Capital Programme is a complex project not least because of the spatial limitations at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, but also the fact that the airport will remain in full use during construction.

This is also the reason why Schiphol seeks to strengthen the current project team with the addition of Royal HaskoningDHV to comprehensively manage these complexities in order to deliver the aims for the Schiphol airport of the future.

Leading in project management

Royal HaskoningDHV has extensive experience in project managing large and complex infrastructural and transport projects both in the Netherlands and around the world.

Erik Oostwegel, CEO Royal HaskoningDHV said: “We are proud to be collaborating with Schiphol Group to create the next generation airport that will see Schiphol ready to take on new challenges.

We have a long history with Schiphol going back to the 1960s and we have contributed to shaping Mainport Schiphol with work on master planning, major terminal extensions, design and construction supervision and architectural supervision among many others.

Our collaborative work with Schiphol Group and partners here will help to drive value creation and support the next phase in Schiphol’s growth strategy.”

Royal HaskoningDHV will collaborate with Logikal Projects adding further international airports and Project Controls expertise.
