Major earthworks

Major earthworks

The Major Earthworks contract was awarded to CPB Contractors and Lend Lease Joint Venture (CPBLL JV) in August 2019. 

This work involves significant design and construction responsibilities, including moving around 25 million cubic metres of earth to support construction of the major elements of the airport, such as the runway and terminal. 

    9 September 2020 Acciona completed the acquisition of Lend Lease Engineering and as such the Major Earthworks Contractor is now referred to as CPB Contractors and Acciona (CPBACC JV).
