AMEC wins Best Consultancy award for airport advice


London, United Kingdom (4 November 2011) "- AMEC, the international engineering
and project management company, has this week been recognised as Best Consultancy at the Airport Operators' Association annual awards ceremony.

Winners were selected for outstanding work and AMEC's award was presented in recognition of its advice on planning and environmental issues to Bristol Airport for over five years.

Clive Harridge, a director of AMEC's Environment & Infrastructure business and leader of the team advising Bristol Airport, said: "AMEC is delighted to receive this award. Our team had a key role in helping secure planning permission to enable the airport to accommodate 10 million passengers per annum. It is estimated that the expansion will help create some 3500 jobs, inject £200m into the local economy and drive £1.1billion increase in visitor spending in the region.  The planning permission is for one of the largest regional airport developments in recent times. 

"Aviation has a key role to play in national and regional economic recovery and growth, and the AMEC team looks forward to building on the Bristol Airport success to facilitate airport developments elsewhere."

Ed Anderson, chairman of the Airport Operators' Association, commented: "The number and quality of entries was unprecedented, reflecting the quality of people and companies working in the airports industry. Deciding on the winners was a difficult process, with so many outstanding entries, but the award winners showed particular excellence and dedication in their field."

The team advising Bristol Airport is part of AMEC's aviation team that is also providing consulting services to Heathrow, Gatwick, Birmingham and Nairobi airports. AMEC in the US is also advising a number of airports including Chicago O'Hare.
