03 June 2012

Contract is estimated to be worth AED1bn

Abu Dhabi Airports Company (Adac) has received bids from contractors for the estimated AED1bn ($272m) contract to build the airside areas for the midfield terminal building at Abu Dhabi International airport.

The project will support the 65 contact gates and up to 19 remote stands that the proposed terminal building will have. The construction work involves infrastructure and civils works around the midfield complex, including 300,000 square metres of pavement concrete, 600,000 sq m of flexible pavement with taxiway connections to the existing and future taxiway systems, and the installation of utilities such as power, stormwater drainage and a jet fuel system.

On 6 May, Adac confirmed that it had selected the consortium of Turkey’s TAV, Athens-based Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) and the local Arabtec Construction as the preferred bidder for the contract to build the estimated AED10.55bn midfield terminal building at Abu Dhabi International airport.

Adac is currently in negotiations with the consortium and will finalise all the details of the contract before an official signing this month.

The total built-up area will be 630,000 sq m and it will include a multi-storey car park.
