The board of the airport company, Papa Rererangi i Puketapu (PRIP), has confirmed the award of the contract after a competitive tender, with local suppliers and sub-contractors being used wherever practical.
Clelands was chosen from three tenders, says New Plymouth Airport Chief Executive Officer Wayne Wootton.
"In the end, after a rigorous tender evaluation process, the contract was awarded for professionalism and the best value for money. We’re on a journey to transform from a 1960s airport to a modern regional gateway, pivotal to our regional tourism strategy. Clelands will be working closely with the airport company and Puketapu hapu to build a distinctive terminal that celebrates Taranaki’s heritage," says Mr Wootton. . .
