BAM International, the operating company of Royal BAM Group active outside Europe, has been awarded a contract by the Tanzania Airports Authority to design and construct the new Terminal 3 complex at Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
The €130m (£110m) contract, which covers phase one of the project, will be executed in a joint venture with UK sister company BAM Nuttall, and BAM Advies & Engineering will be involved as one of the design-partners.
The new terminal has been designed together with NACO, Netherlands Airport Consultants, to meet the anticipated growth of international air traffic, leaving the existing international Terminal 2 to cater for domestic flights. Phase 1 comprises the construction of the main terminal building – with a capacity of 3.5 million annual passengers – including parking lots, access roads, platforms and a taxiway.
The second phase will then provide further capacity for six million annual passengers. The design of the roof is inspired on the traditional sailing boats that can be found at the Dar es Salaam coast.
In 2010 BAM International completed phase two of the renovation of the airport’s infrastructure, comprising the rehabilitation of all taxiways and the air ground lighting. Phase one, completed in 2006 by BAM International, involved the rehabilitation of the main runway and the upgrading of the Terminal 2 apron.
