Malaysian construction firm Eversendai has signed an AED390m ($106m) contract to provide the structural steel works at Abu Dhabi’s Midfield Terminal currently being constructed.

The scope of the contract covers steel works for piers, jet bridges and gate houses. Work is due to begin in February 2013 and to be completed by May 2015.

Eversendai says that the contract is one of the largest it has secured and boosts the group’s orderbook to RM1.6bn ($531m).

Construction on the new terminal began in August 2012.

The midfield terminal will be built between the two existing runways at Abu Dhabi International airport. The total built-up area will be 630,000 square metres and it will include a multi-storey car park. The terminal will include 27,000 sq m of retail and food and beverage outlets. It will also comprise 65 contact gates that will be able to accommodate A380 aircraft.
