Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) has awarded the construction management contract for the completion of its major city-side development program to a consortium consisting of Pomerleau, SNC-Lavalin and Construction Kiewit (PSK).
Under the terms of the initial five-year contract, PSK will act as a partner and key collaborator. The consortium’s mandate includes managing the program’s design, assessing constructability, and identifying opportunities to optimize the schedule and phasing of construction.
“By using this innovative contract model of risk-based construction management, ADM will benefit from additional significant expertise, which will definitely change the face of YUL Montréal-Trudeau International airport,” said Philippe Rainville, president and chief executive officer of ADM. “We are pleased to be working with companies that have solid expertise in carrying out projects of a similar scope.”
ADM is planning to invest C$2.5bn (US$1.8bn) to facilitate access to the airport site. The project includes the construction work and development of an underground station for the REM. It also involves the rebuilding of two major infrastructures: the multi-level parking complex and the drop-off/pick-up zones. In addition, the YUL Transit space will give users access to the airport terminal, the parking lots, the REM station, the bus terminal and various forms of public transportation.
