First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Bermudian engineering company Brunel has won a contract for structural and civil engineering at the airport redevelopment.

The firm was appointed by Canadian company Aecon, the lead firm in the airport project.

Steve Nackan, the president of Aecon Concessions, said: “We engaged Brunel because they have a valuable perspective to offer this project.

“The team has extensive knowledge of local construction practices, permit processes, planning and building codes, and, of course, Bermuda's culture and environment which will impact the airport's design.”

Brunel will help with design documentation, drawings and details, advise on local conditions as well as assist with design related to transport like buses, taxis and scooters.

The Bermuda firm will also work with other global engineering teams to ensure that the new airport's construction will be in line with Bermudian culture.

Jamie Pehkonen of Brunel said: “We look forward to collaborating with a truly global team of experts to make this important project a reality for the island.

“Our technical as well as local expertise makes us an ideal partner to help build a modern airport befitting Bermuda.”

The main structural engineering firm for the project is Quinn Dressel from Toronto and the lead civil engineering company is the Toronto arm of global consulting company WSP.

The redevelopment of the airport is a joint venture between the governments of Bermuda and Canada, with the Canadian Commercial Corporation, a Crown corporation of the Canadian government with expertise in international contracting for major building projects.
