The DAA is to hire a firm to oversee project management and logistics of its €2bn capital investment programme (CIP) at Dublin Airport to ensure that the works cause minimal impact at the gateway.
The State-owned airport operator has notified the market of its intention to hire an integrated delivery partner for the works, which include a number of major projects.
They include a major rehabilitation of the aprons at the airport, upgrading airline lounges, extensions to multi- storey car parks, a new services vehicle tunnel, a custom border protection upgrade, and an upgrade of the terminal one baggage reclaim area.
"The projects within the new CIP - coupled with existing investments that form elements of previously approved capital programmes - require extensive, technically complex work throughout the airport," noted the DAA.
It added: "The work will take place in critical areas across the airfield, boarding gate piers, terminals and the general airport campus. Working together with key stakeholders, it must be delivered in a manner that causes minimal impact on the existing airport operation, and our airline customers and passengers."
The DAA said the integrated delivery partner, which it expected to hire by the end of June next year, would be required to develop a "single integrated team culture" at Dublin Airport, to deliver a "successful CIP".
