Modern airfield aprons for an international airport

Dublin Airport is a major international airport, which facilitates scheduled and chartered flights to over 150 destinations, and operates on a 24-hour basis. The client, DAA PLC (formerly Dublin Airport Authority), oversees airport development, operation, and management, Irish and international airport retail management and international airport investment, and employs over 3,000 people. Recognizing that the critical airport aprons were 40 years old, in poor condition and no longer fit for purpose, the DAA decided to carry out a number of pavement rehabilitation projects between 2015 and 2019 in a phased and timely manner. These works would replace failed pavements before they began to cause significant delays to the flight schedule, or posed health and safety risks to the aircraft

Runway rehabilitation

Linesight are providing a full range of services to IDOM who are working on behalf of the DAA, including cost management, risk quantification and mitigation support, value engineering, procurement, supply chain management, cost estimation and contract administration. We undertook a feasibility study to define the overall scope budget estimate of the project, and to assist with developing the rehabilitation plan with an appropriate delivery strategy, before defining the rehabilitation areas and completing the detailed design. Our team are overseeing pre contract cost management services for the delivery of the rehabilitation works, in a phased manner between 2015 and 2019.

Prioritizing time constraints

  • We worked to a fast-track program due to a limited construction period window. Works could only be completed between September and March so as not to affect high season travel

  • All pre-tender commercial requirements were completed on time, and the project for Package 1 Apron Rehabilitation was brought in under budget
