Mexico awards $4.2bn airport contract
A Mexican-Spanish consortium has landed a US$4.2bn (£3.4bn) contract to build the terminal for Mexico City’s new airport.
The consortium is led by FCC’s majority shareholder Carlos Slim’s Grupo Carso. As well as FCC, it also includes another Spanish company, Acciona, along with local Mexican companies ICA, GIA, Prodemex, Grupo Hermes and La Peninsular.
The consortium will build the terminal building of the new international airport for Mexico City (NAICM) in the Federal District of Lake Texcoco after submitting the best economic and technical bid. The contract will have a 44 month completion deadline.
The building has been designed by architects Norman Foster and Fernando Romero and will take the shape of an X, alluding to Mexico. It will have capacity for about 125 million passengers per year.
