HKA selected for a HKIA framework agreement to support the delivery of 3RS
HKA, a worldwide provider of advisory, consulting and expert services, has entered into a five-year framework agreement with the Airport Authority Hong Kong to support the delivery of a new Three-runway system (3RS) that will strengthen Hong Kong’s competitiveness as an international aviation hub.
The HK$141.5 billion (US$18bn) mega-project will expand Hong Kong International Airport from the current two-runway system into a Three-runway system.
The project includes reclamation of 650 hectares of land, construction of a third 3.8km runway, a new passenger concourse, expansion of the existing Terminal 2, provisional of a new 2.6 km automated people mover, a new, high-speed baggage handling system along with the construction of other associated airport support infrastructure and utilities. Upon completion of the 3RS, Hong Kong International Airport will be able to serve 30 million additional passengers annually.
HKA will lead a consortium delivering best in class planning, programming, risk and building information modelling (BIM) expertise drawn from its own global pool of advisers and its specialist delivery partners: Equib (risk management), Logikal (project performance management), Waldeck (digital twin solutions), and BIMS Group (BIM technology).
“We are delighted to have been selected by the Airport Authority Hong Kong to augment its in-house project management team,” said Paul Roberts, HKA Partner. “Our professional team of advisory specialists will be working under the direction of the authority during the planning and programming phases, providing specialist risk management and BIM implementation support for this world-scale, highly complex megaproject,” added Paul.
