Arcadis Wins Aruba Airport Gateway 2030 Project Contract

The Aruba Airport Authority N.V. (AAA) has selected Arcadis for contract management and technical supervision services relating to the terminal expansion at Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA) as part of the Gateway 2030 project.

The Aruba Airport Authority launched its Gateway 2030 project a few years ago to modernise and expand the airport. It is one of the busiest airports in the Caribbean, hosting 29 airlines and processing more than 2.5 million passengers annually. Once the project is complete, Aruba Airport will also be one of the largest and most efficient in the region.

As part of its contract, Arcadis will deliver contract management and technical supervision services for the development of a new pier and passenger gates. These services cover all demolition works, the expansion and the full overhaul of the check-in hall. The contract scope for Arcadis also includes a new immigration and security hall, a new retail and food & beverage plaza, and a new baggage hall. This includes a pier extension with three contact gates and external roads.

Nick Hutchinson, Global Leader for Integrated Airport Solutions at Arcadis, said:

“We are proud to be working under the program and project management of the AAA on this groundbreaking project.

“Arcadis has great expertise in the airport sector, working with some of the largest airports in the world. Our multinational team that will work at Aruba Airport will consist of experts from Latin America, Europe, North America and Middle East. We are convinced that the Gateway 2030 project will greatly benefit the people and economy of Aruba, as well as the comfort and travel efficiency of visitors.”

The Aruba Airport Authority wants the Gateway 2030 project to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certificate. This certification scheme is one of the most popular green building rating schemes in the world.

AAA CEO Joost Meijs said:

“It's very exciting for Aruba Airport to be one step closer to the groundbreaking Gateway 2030 project. We are glad that Arcadis is going to support the accountable AAA project and program team whom are responsible for leading this ambitious extension of our airport facilities. Their ample experience in this field will be relied on to successfully complete the airport's expansion and modernisation project.”

Queen Beatrix International Airport is located in Oranjestad, Aruba, in the southern Caribbean. It has flights to and from the United States, a number of Caribbean countries, the northern coastal countries of South America, Canada and some European countries, including, of course, the Netherlands.
