dubai international airport terminal 2
UAE-based Arabtec Construction has been awarded a AED561m ($152.7m) contract by Dubai Aviation City Corporation for the expansion of Dubai International Airport.

As part of the third phase of the project, Arbatec will perform structural works, mechanical, engineering and plumbing, and install a special airport system, finishes and site works for the expansion of terminal 2.

Arabtec Construction CEO Greg Christofides said that the company was proud to be awarded repeated projects with Dubai Civil Aviation.

The contract follows the company’s AED636m contract announced last month for infrastructure work in Saudi Arabia.

The company has won 12 civil aviation work-related contracts in recent years, which include earlier works at Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Central.

"Projects completed at Dubai Airport and Dubai World Central included passenger terminals, control towers, energy centres, maintenance hangars, cargo buildings, and fuel storage and distribution," said Christofides. "These projects included renovation, expansion, civil works, structural works, MEP, SAS, water drainage and sewerage systems."

The current project at Dubai airport will be completed within 25 months from the start date.
