Airport chief delivers warning to O’Rourke

by Sean Cronin

Contractor Laing O’Rourke has been warned against making a legal claim for ballooning construction costs on its controversial Dubai International Airport project.

“This is a grown up game and there are contracts that cover the relationship between the client and the contractor,” said Khalifa Suhail Al Zafein, director of engineering projects in Dubai’s Department of Civil Aviation (DCA).

“From a legal point of view they do not have a leg to stand on,” said Al Zafein, in an interview with Construction Week.

Laing O’Rourke picked up the US $660 million (AED2.4 billion) contract to build the new terminal at Dubai International Airport, in 2003.

It was hit by a massive increase in construction costs when the price of steel and cement rocketed.

In response, the contractor set up its own steel factory and imported the material directly from Turkey.

Now Laing O’Rourke is seeking to recoup some of its losses from the client, arising from the material prices.

But Al Zafein warned that the contractor does not have any contractual right to compensation for rising construction costs.

It is understood that none of the contractors working on the
airport for DCA are protected by price escalation clauses.

Rising material prices are now also thought to be impacting on the MEP works as the price of copper touches on record levels.

“There is nothing in their contract that gives them any right to be given more money for any increase in building materials,” he said.

The airport contract has been at the centre of controversy for Laing O’Rourke, since it picked up the job two years ago in joint venture with local partner Al Naboodah.

In September 2004, five workers were killed when a section of reinforcement cage for a buttress wall collapsed.

The expansion of Dubai International Airport will cost around $4.5 billion and increase passenger numbers to around 70 million per year by 2016 and 100 million per year by 2025.

Al Naboodah Laing O’Rourke was unavailable for comment

Dubai airport to be hub for 120 airlines

Dubai International Airport (DIA) is expecting 120 airlines to operate through the emirate in the next couple of years, according to an official at the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation.

There are 113 airlines operating through the DIA at present. “By the end of end of this year, we will have three more airlines,” Jamal Al Hai, the Director of Strategy and Management Excellence and Chairman of the Executive Board at the Department of Civil Aviation, told Emirates Today.

He confirmed that while Italian carrier Eurofly is one of the three airlines to launch its Dubai operations this year, talks on other two airlines are still under way. In April, in a meeting with Khalid A bin Sulayem, the Director General of Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), Eurofly’s Chief Executive Officer Dr Armando Brunini, had discussed the possibility of starting weekly flights between Dubai and Italy.

Meanwhile, as part of the $4.2 billion (Dh15.4bn) airport expansion plan, Concourse 2, which was earlier scheduled to be completed by the first quarter of 2007, has now been deferred to July 2007, according to Al Hai.

“The Concourse 2 is being designed to house five A380s. As a civil aviation body, the news of the delay of the A380 gave us more time to build the Concourse 2 and put in more facilities,” said Al Hai.

“But of course, it has made a huge difference to Emirates who wants that aircraft at the earliest. The airport plan was running in line with the delivery of the aircraft, which was originally designed to have been delivered by the end of next year but now we do not know how much it has been delayed,” he added.

Al Hai said that even if there are more delays to the delivery of A380, it will not make a big difference to the DIA. “We will then use the A380 capacity for other aircraft like the 747 and the 777. The difference is that the A380 has a double-decker and others have a single deck.

“But by doing that we would be giving flexibility to other type of aircraft, to use more space and more lounges for their first class and the business class,” he said.

The project has been tendered twice before as package AX 273: AX 272/F is understood to being tendered with a reduced scope of works. AX 272 involved structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) and finishes works for an 80,000-square-metre extension and refurbishment of the existing 15,000-square-metre facility.
