Louis Berger announced Thursday that it has secured its fourth contract extension for engineering services at the Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan.
The contract, which is estimated at a total value of $15 million according to Louis Berger, will allow the company to continue its rehabilitation and expansion program at the airport.
"We're pleased to have been part of a critical infrastructure transformation that will allow Jordan to achieve its growth priorities by rehabilitating QAIA to become a more convenient, secure and affordable transportation hub for the region," Javier Gonzalez, vice president for Louis Berger's global aviation practice, said in a statement.
With the new contract extension, Louis Berger will perform its duties during the construction of an additional 500,000-square-foot passenger terminal area, eight aircraft contact gates, eight remote boarding gates, four link bridges, 10 moving walkways, 15 elevators and 18 escalators.
The new terminal will have the capacity to process 9 to 12 million passengers per year, Louis Berger said in a statement. The project is slated to be completed in mid-2016.
