UK construction firm Mace will serve as the delivery partner for Riyadh’s King Salman International Airport, expected to be the world’s largest airport following its 2030 opening.

A variety of international firms competed for the contract since last year, with Mace winning the bid, the Middle East Economic Digest reported on Thursday.

The firm will offer project and design management, cost consulting and procurement information.

It has considerable experience in airport construction and maintenance, including a 30-year contract covering London’s Heathrow Airport, the largest in Europe.

A bid to design the master plan for Riyadh’s KSIA was won by UK-based Foster + Partners. The airport’s buildings will be designed by the British firm, while US-based company Jacobs will design infrastructure.
