£28.8m Jamaica ‘in’ for Kier

Kier Construction in Sandy, Bedfordshire, has secured a £28.8 million contract to construct a new terminal building at Jamaica’s Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, part of which will be available in time for the 2007 Cricket World Cup.Kier Construction in Sandy, Bedfordshire, has secured a £28.8 million contract to construct a new terminal building at Jamaica’s Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, part of which will be available in time for the 2007 Cricket World Cup.

The Norman Manley International Airport (KIN) is the major gateway linking Jamaica’s capital city Kingston to destinations worldwide.

Approximately 1.6m passengers travelled through the airport in 2005.

The addition of a new 10,000m2 departure concourse will increase the existing capacity to accommodate the projected annual growth of 3-4 per cent through to 2012.

The project for client NMIA Airports Ltd also involves the addition of a second level to the existing passenger pier, which allows passengers access from the terminal to the aircraft plus renovation works to the existing terminal building.

The total expansion works will encompass the ticketing and departure concourse, access roadways and public car parks, reconfiguration of the customs hall to ensure more efficient passenger movement and the creation of a cargo village to facilitate improved cargo handling operations.

Completion of this project will pave the way for further development of hotels and conference facilities around the airport.

Kingston’s Norman Manley International Airport (KIN) is the major gateway linking the country’s capital city to destinations worldwide.

It is located on 228 hectares on the Palisadoes peninsula in the southeastern part of Jamaica, in close proximity to the historical site of Port Royal, and is approximately thirty minutes away from the main business district of New Kingston.

Given its proximity to Kingston, one of the Caribbean’s leading commercial and industrial centres, KIN is of significant importance to the business community and is the primary airport for business travel to and from Jamaica.

In addition, the airport accounted for massive amounts of freight during the last 12 months.
