The practice, which saw off a bid from Brits Pascall+ Watson and Mott MacDonald to land the job, is set to design a new air traffic control tower and a second terminal at the Jorge Chávez International Airport.
The huge 7 million m² scheme will be located on land just to the west of the existing airport.
Grimshaw is working with ARCADIS, CH2MHill and Ramboll on the $950 million expansion project.
The win comes on the back of its appointment to work on the £1billion Northern Line extension and its new underground stations at Battersea Power Station and Nine Elms.
Grimshaw is also working on the huge HS2 and Crossrail projects and is already set to increase its staffing levels to cope with the upsurge in workloads (AJ 28.08.14).
Designs for the new airport buildings are set to be revealed in 2015.
