WSP Group in partnership with Jordanian firm Consolidated Consultants (CC) has been appointed as the independent engineer for the second construction phase of the new terminal at Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) in Amman, Jordan.
WSP and CC oversaw the first phase of construction for the US$800m terminal, which opened in March 2013. The partnership has now been reappointed to continue its consulting services and also to provide technical advice and support related to the project financing.
Jim Ratliff, director for WSP, said, “Our reappointment to this high-profile project reflects WSP’s increasing presence right across the aviation sector, from front-end planning to design and environmental consultancy. We have worked on several of the world’s largest airports such as the new Hamad International Airport (HIA) in Doha, which is ongoing, and Heathrow and Gatwick airports so this just consolidates our offering.”
