9 January 2019 – Global infrastructure and advisory company Aurecon has appointed two senior aviation specialists as part of its full-suite service offering to address challenges associated with the rapid growth of air travel.

Air travel is predicted to double in the next 20 years and with that comes the challenges of needing new airports, new road infrastructure and new airport business operation models.

Kevin Dearden and Medha Rahman join Aurecon to help deliver aviation services, including airport strategy and finance, terminal planning and design, airfield planning and design, and airport master planning and aviation advisory. 

Medha Rahman is an Aviation Associate Director, Advisory, with a focus on airport modelling for both planning and corporate decisions. His focus is on helping airport operators to extract value through detailed analysis of the business and its operation.

Kevin Dearden joins Aurecon as Airports Engineer. In his previous positions he led engineering teams to design infrastructure upgrades at airports across Africa and the UK.

Welcoming the new appointments Stephen Symons, Aurecon’s Aviation Global Client Director, said Aurecon could now capture more opportunities in the aviation sector as the firm broadens its offerings beyond the traditional boundaries of terminal buildings and runways.

“Having Kevin and Medha on board means that Aurecon can offer clients additional services and take advantage of the considerable business opportunities that exist in the sector,” he said.

“Kevin’s international experience in airport engineering and planning will help solve a great deal of complex infrastructure problems that our aviation clients face.

“Medha’s extensive experience in financial modelling for airport owners and operators will be an invaluable asset for our clients.”

Explaining their decision to join Aurecon, Kevin and Medha were excited by the company’s design-led, innovative approach of working closely with clients to solve complex problems.

“Airports are no longer just transit hubs for aircraft. They are thriving centres for the surrounding area and present myriad business opportunities,” Kevin said.

“It’s really exciting to be able to bridge gaps for our clients in order to tighten their strategic objectives and bring about delivery of high quality assets, as these are Aurecon’s key strengths,” Medha added.
