Dubai Airports chooses Aconex to manage projects
Dubai Airports Corporation will use Aconex software to manage virtually all small to medium-sized construction projects over the next five years at its two airports – Dubai International (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC).
Through 2021, Dubai Airports expects to undertake more than a hundred smaller infrastructure projects with minimal to no impact on passenger and cargo traffic.
Coordination and collaboration among many stakeholders is essential to on-time delivery, passenger experience and increasing airport capacity.
“The efficient transfer of project information between stakeholders is a very critical success factor for us,” said Lawrence Vincent-Edwards, Dubai Airports Development Director. “Accordingly, all stakeholders need to be in the loop to ensure operations run smoothly and passenger service is not affected.
“Aconex ensures that everybody receives the information at the same time and allows us to track the receipt of information. We can see where the flow of information is being held up and monitor performance such as response times for requests for information (RFIs) and document reviews.”
DXB is the world’s number one airport for international passengers, handling over 83 million in 2016. DWC, which initiated cargo operations in 2010, is currently ranked the 19th busiest hub for international freight traffic by Airports Council International.
