RS&H to Design Cayman Island Airport Expansion

By Joe VanHoose

January 10, 2015

The Cayman Compass reported that RS&H has been signed to provide the design of a $55 million expansion to the Grand Cayman’s central airport, which will double the capacity of the terminal to 2.5 million passengers annually. According to Albert Anderson, CEO of the airport authority, RS&H consultants will also be responsible for keeping the project at the Owen Roberts International Airport – financed largely through passenger charges levied by the authority – on time and on budget.

Mr. Anderson said the U.S. firm was selected following a tender process that initially included nine firms. He said no local firms qualified due to the specific expertise required for the job.

“RS&H has experience in designing and managing airport construction projects across the U.S.,” he said, adding that the firm would work in partnership with local design firms. “The construction work could be done by a Caymanian company.”

RS&H was the designer of the original terminal, which was completed in 1991.
