Bechtel wins Delivery Partner and Project Manager (Definition) roles for Western Sydney Airport

Bechtel, a global leader in project management, engineering, procurement and construction, has been selected by WSA Co as its Delivery Partner and Project Manager (Definition) for the Western Sydney Airport, a $5.3 billion greenfield facility in Badgerys Creek, New South Wales. This will be a landmark project for both New South Wales and Australia, and is due for completion at the end of 2026.

“Construction of the Western Sydney Airport is a once in a generation infrastructure development opportunity for the region and the country, and we are honoured to be working with the Commonwealth of Australia and WSA Co on this iconic project,” said Ailie MacAdam, Bechtel’s managing director for Australia.

“The Bechtel team looks forward to partnering with the owners, contractors and suppliers on the project, bringing together some of the world’s best aviation and project management minds with local Western Sydney talent.”

Western Sydney Airport will provide much-needed additional aviation capacity to meet growing demand in the Sydney basin and improve access to flights for people in Western Sydney. One of Australia's most significant infrastructure projects in decades, the international and domestic airport will open in 2026, bringing social and economic prosperity to the Western Sydney region.
