CPB Contractors preferred for Auckland International Airport works


CIMIC Group company CPB Contractors has been selected as preferred proponent to deliver Auckland Airport’s international taxiway and remote stands project, a critical component in the facility’s major capital works program.

The contract will generate revenue to CPB Contractors of approximately NZ$200 million, which will be confirmed at contract execution.

Works include construction of an additional taxiway, extension of an existing taxiway and six remote stands with in-ground jet fuel reticulation, to expand existing aeronautical infrastructure for New Zealand’s largest and busiest airport.

CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright said: “CIMIC Group and CPB Contractors are focused on delivering essential infrastructure for New Zealand communities and it is our privilege to be playing an integral role in the transformation of Auckland Airport.”

CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria said: “We look forward to building a close ongoing relationship with Auckland Airport and to delivering this important infrastructure project efficiently and to the highest safety standards.”

Works include more than 1 million cubic metres of earthworks and basecourse, 168,000 square metres of concrete pavement, construction of 3.2 kilometres of stormwater drainage, runoff and treatment lagoon, and as well as a 2.2 kilometres in-ground jet fuel network.

Construction is scheduled to commence mid this year, with expected completion by late 2021.
