Kuwait International Airport New Terminal Building, Kuwait

 The tender for Kuwait International Airport New Terminal Building Construction (T2) has been announced with the signature ceremony organized on May 30, 2016. The construction site has been handed over to Limak on August 28, 2016 by Kuwait Ministry of Public Works (MPW).

The KIA-T2 project has been planned in order to increase the available airport capacity significantly and create a new regional hub. The New Terminal building will offer the highest level of comfort for passengers in an area of approximately 750,000 square meters. The building is located under a single roof, with daylight ports that refract the sun beams and allow daylight to enter inside. The roof fully extends outside of the building and ensures that the entrance plaza and the airside bridges used by the passengers to pass to the planes are under the shade. The terminal building facade has been designed as impermeable to sand and dust, and is resistant to explosion. The design, reflecting the hospitality and guest hosting culture of the region, creates an elegant and unforgettable impression on arriving passengers with a luggage area surrounded by a cooling waterfall. The design also includes a new landside access on the south. The landscaping in the surroundings of the building consists of an emerald green oasis formed by dry planted greens and varieties specific to the desert climate, expelling the desert climate from the building.

The airport capacity is planned to reach 25 million passengers per year after the new terminal building is taken into operation. The new terminal building is the main element in the expansion plan of Kuwait International Airport. The terminal building package also includes the construction of a central power supply building, water tank building, security building, infrastructure tunnel and electricity substations.
 
The airport, which aims to be the first LEED GOLD building of the world among passenger terminals, will also generate solar energy by combining the thermal features of the concrete construction and the solar energy panels installed over a large area on the roof.

The airport has been designed as three stories and one basement. It has been designed in the form of a triangle, each side of which is 1.2 km long. It will have a passenger entrance gate to serve 21 Code F (A380) airplanes and 9 Code C (A320) airplanes. It will be possible to re-arrange this order so as to serve 51 Code C planes thanks to the Multiple Airplane Ramp System.

The primary structure consists of 90 pre-cast concrete columns that are connected by post-tensed precast arches. These are supported by 39,800 composite steel and concrete cassettes forming the interior roof. The building has been designed as resistant to atmospheric conditions with galvanized steel roofing and glass facade. Furthermore, it will be resistant to explosions. The project consists of millions of cubic meters of concrete and structural steel over 150,000 tons. The Kuwait International Airport New Terminal Building, which has been designed by the world renowned Foster + Partners architecture company with the Pritzker prize, will transform Kuwait International Airport into one of the world’s leading airports, as well as being a symbolic entrance gate to the country.

At the same time, the tender also qualifies as the biggest tender that has been awarded to Turkish contractors abroad as a single package.
