LONDON & DUBAI: A joint venture between Vindico Retail and The Design Solution, leading airport retail planners & designers, has been appointed by Abu Dhabi Airports Company (“ADAC”) as one of two Commercial Consultants to Abu Dhabi Airport’s Midfield Terminal project.
The project is a pillar of Abu Dhabi’s 2030 master plan and is one of the world’s most significant airport terminal projects, to open in mid-2017 as home to the rapidly expanding Etihad Airways with a capacity to handle over 40 million passengers a year. The role has brought together the expertise of sector specialists, including a commercial modelling focus from San Francisco based SAP Group.
Peter Row, Vindico Founding Director, comments; “The Design Solution, SAP Group and Vindico Retail are leading specialists in retail planning & design, commercial modelling and delivery respectively, and we look forward to collaborating on this hugely ambitious project.”
“Robbie Gill, Graeme Johns and the team at TDS have been involved in over 100 terminals around the world, and this truly global perspective is complimented by Vindico’s local track record – we are currently under contract to deliver over 1,500 retail & restaurant units in Abu Dhabi alone.”
With a pedigree in shopping centre projects, this appointment strengthens Vindico Retail’s airport credentials by becoming the ninth terminal project on which tenant coordination & design review services have been provided in the UK and UAE aviation markets.
