Air France took charge of Paris CDG Airport expansion  and designated a French contractor and a Scottish engineering company to carry out the management project.

The project involved the preparation of technical specifications for subcontractors in civil engineering, electrical and mechanical all the way to the execution phase and completion of the project.

This was a challenging task as some of the assignments were given at short notice and required within strict deadlines.

 A good working relation was established with the client who helped with "in-house jargon". Client even used us as "troubleshouter" to contact over the phone his French subcontractors to clarify or iron out any issues in the execution of the contract. Issues which might have taken time otherwise in lengthy correspondence and cost of translation.
