Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) announced it has awarded the five-year contract for the completion of its major cityside development program to a consortium made up of the companies Pomerleau, SNC-Lavalin and Construction Kiewit Cie (PSK).

The companies’ mandate includes managing the program’s design, assessing constructability, and identifying opportunities to optimize the schedule and phasing of construction. PSK will act as a partner and key collaborator throughout the execution of the work.

“By using this innovative contract model of risk-based construction management, ADM will benefit from additional significant expertise for the implementation of this program, which will definitely change the face of YUL Montréal-Trudeau International airport,” said Philippe Rainville, President and Chief Executive Officer of ADM. “We are pleased to be working with companies that have solid expertise in carrying out projects of a similar scope.”

The project includes the construction work and development of an underground station for the Réseau express métropolitain (REM), Montreal’s rapid transit system currently under construction.

“Like major international airports, YUL Montreal-Trudeau International Airport will benefit from frequent and reliable access at all times; REM and the new access network will ease transit,” said Jonathan Wilkinson, President, Infrastructure, SNC-Lavalin. “We are proud to bring our airport infrastructure expertise and experience to a project of this quality.”

It also involves the rebuilding of two major infrastructures: the multi-level parking complex and the drop-off/pick-up zones. In addition, the YUL Transit space will give users access to the airport terminal, the parking lots, the REM station, the bus terminal and various forms of public transportation.

In total, ADM is planning to spend $2.5 billion to facilitate inter-modality and access to the airport site.
