parsons overseas limited UAE sharjah international airport passenger terminal worldUS engineering consultancy Parsons Overseas Limited has won the project management rights for the expansion of Sharjah International Airport in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The AED1.5bn (US$4.08bn) project will aid the airport in welcoming 25 million travelers by 2027. Parsons will oversee designs, site preparation, supervision of the construction and the handover of the first project.

Gary Adams, president of Parsons Overseas Limited, said, “Parsons and its team are honored to have been selected to manage the project expansion for Sharjah Airport, a program that will dramatically improve the current travel options to and from Sharjah as well as promote economic growth and job creation within the Emirate.

“We are looking forward to applying our expertise and contributing to this milestone development.”

Timescales surrounding the expansion are yet to be released, but it is expected to be carried out progressively over a number of phases with the most important being the expansion of roads to and from the airport.

Parsons Overseas Limited executes several major projects in the UAE and Middle East, where it won a contract to design and supervise the infrastructure development project of the site of Dubai Expo 2020. It also played an important role in the development of infrastructure for the Dubai Water Canal and the network of roads linking with Dubai Parks and Resorts.
