Bahrain’s Mena Aerospace has appointed local Dheya Towfiqi Consultancy Bureau (DTEB) as chief consulting engineer and architect for the planned general aviation and hangar complex at Bahrain International airport.

Mena Aerospace won a contract covering the construction and operation of the hangar complex in January (MEED 19:1:11).

Mena Aerospace will invest in the development of the hangar, which will be used for both private and general aviation. The hangar will be located at the north-west end of Bahrain airport. The first phase involves building a 26,262 square metre facility, consisting of the hangar, private taxiway and apron, in addition to office and workshop areas.

DTEB will manage the development, including design, subcontracting and handover management.

Bahrain Airport Company (Bac) is the client on this project and also the $4.7bn expansion of the airport itself. Companies are invited to submit prequalification documents by 12 October for a contract to carry out the main works of the expansion of the terminal.
