ACSA appoints MMQSMace to help transform South Africa’s airport infrastructure

MMQSMace, Mace’s joint venture cost consultancy business in South Africa, has been appointed as quantity surveyors for three aviation projects worth more than $70m by Airports Company South Africa (ACSA).   

ACSA owns most of South Africa’s major airports, as well as a number of other aviation facilities across the globe, including in Sao Paolo and Mumbai. MMQSMace has been appointed to work on Johannesburg’s O. R. Tambo International Airport, Africa’s largest airport for regional and intercontinental flights, and Cape Town International Airport, the second-busiest airport in South Africa and the third-busiest in Africa. 
 
MMQSMace was appointed to the ACSA three year quantity surveying framework earlier in 2018, and has now been awarded three separate projects. 
 
The three projects combined will see MMQSMace and the client work together with the rest of the project team to deliver more than $70m of improvements to the two airports. These improvements include refurbishment of part of the airside corridor and construction of five new passenger seating nodes at the airport at O. R. Tambo Airport. 
 
Mace is one of the world’s leading aviation project delivery experts, having worked on aviation construction and extension programmes across the globe. These have included projects in India, New Zealand, the Netherlands and the UK. 
 
Tshepiso Raletsemo, Group Manager Portfolio Management of ACSA said: 
 
“First I would like to congratulate MMQSMace on its appointment to these three key airport upgrade projects. We welcome MMQSMace to the team and really look forward to building a great working relationship as these projects move forward.” 
 
Mandla Mlangeni, Managing Director of MMQSMace said: 
 
“We are thrilled to have been appointed by ACSA as quantity surveyors for this infrastructure upgrade programme. O. R. Tambo International and Cape Town International are two of the most strategically important African airports, so it’s a privilege to help improve them for the future. 
 
“By combining Mace’s extensive international aviation experience and MMQSMace’s local knowledge and expertise I’m confident that our first projects with ACSA will be a huge success.”
