Turkey-based Izmir Adnan Menderes International Airport has opened a new domestic terminal built, which was built with an investment of €265m.

The new terminal was developed by TAV EGE, a fully owned subsidiary of the international airport development and operating group TAV Airports

Built by TAV Construction, the terminal is expected to support growing domestic and international traffic as well as expand the overall wider economic development of the region.

Spread across a total area of about 200,000m², the terminal has eight passenger boarding bridges and is located next to the current international terminal.

The design of the terminal is said to simplify passenger transfer and provide a single consolidated building for operation.

Engineering services consultancy Mott MacDonald was appointed as the technical advisor for the project.

Mott MacDonald headed the development of an environmental and social action plan, which was implemented by TAV EGE and monitored by the consultancy during construction.

The company was also responsible for reviewing the project progress, quality assurance and control, health and safety as well as IT and systems of the terminal.

Mott MacDonald project director Adrian Dawes said: "A particular focus area for us during this project was ensuring the lenders' environmental and social requirements were implemented during the construction and operation phases of the project.

"Feedback from TAV EGE and TAV Construction has shown that they found our contributions and observations very useful in assisting them to deliver this major fast-track project."
