The works involve earthworks, back filling, and ground leveling of the eastern section of the project between the airport runways. The total volume of material to be moved is estimated to be 10 to 14 million square metres. The works also involve supplying and maintaining new site offices, the demolition of existing buildings, and building roads and underground services at the site.

Abu Dhabi Airports Company (Adac) recently received four bids for the build-operate-transfer contract for the project’s midfield terminal on the $6.8bn redevelopment of the airport. The four bidders are France’s Aeroports de Paris (ADP), Singapore’s Changi Airports International, Germany’s Hochtief, and Turkey’s TAV.

US-based Parsons International is the programme manager for the entire development (MEED 11:04:08).
