Los Angeles World Airports Selects HOK+Arup for Three-Year Design and Planning On-Call Agreement

Joint venture led by HOK and Arup will provide architecture and engineering services for potential new building projects at Los Angeles International Airport and Van Nuys Airport.

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), the owner and operator of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Van Nuys Airport (VNY), has selected the joint venture HOK+Arup to serve as principal architect and principal engineer to advance the planning and design of potential capital investment projects over the next three years. By creating a first-ever consolidated on-call vehicle to deliver large and small projects throughout LAX and VNY, LAWA is ensuring a streamlined and cost-effective way to modernize and improve both airports for air travelers, airport employees and the local community.

A gateway to North America and the Pacific Rim, LAX is a crucial artery of the region’s infrastructure. As such, it must be both maintained and modernized to continue to thrive, particularly as the city and surrounding community look forward to hosting the 2028 Olympic Games.

“As our $14 billion capital improvement program continues to reinvent the LAX experience, bringing all of the experts in planning, architecture and engineering under one umbrella will create efficiencies as we look at how to create these critical infrastructure projects, while providing opportunities for local businesses and workers to help build a better LAX,” said Bernardo Gogna, chief development officer for Los Angeles World Airports.

The HOK+Arup joint venture team is made up of 47 partners, 30 of which are small, local and minority businesses. The teaming effort was driven by a desire to work with businesses from the surrounding community to deliver the projects that will shape it in the future. HOK+Arup will ensure LAWA’s diversity and inclusion vision is at the heart of each design and planning project. The on-call agreement will not only deliver seamless airport improvements, it will also serve as a catalyst for local businesses and broader community engagement.
