Construction specialist BAM has been selected by Edinburgh Airport to build the first phase of their Terminal Expansion Project (TEP).
Part of an £80m investment plan, the first phase of the expansion project will feature a three storey terminal extension providing an additional 14,350 sq m of accommodation.
The project, which is scheduled to complete for autumn 2018, will offer new domestic and international arrival facilities including baggage reclaim and border control facilities, additional retail and food/beverage outlets and expanded lounge space along with new office accommodation.
Furthermore, the project will include link bridges and stair nodes, which will allow connection to new larger aircraft stands and an extension to the south east pier to provide additional departure/arrival gates.
BAM Construction regional director Bruce Dickson said, “TEP is a significant infrastructure project and we are absolutely delighted to have been selected by EAL to deliver the first phase of this scheme.”
Edinburgh Airport capital director Ian Lang said: "This is a major investment for the capital and Scotland and means we will be providing the first class infrastructure the airport needs to handle more passengers and provide them with a positive experience.
“BAM has extensive experience in delivering complex projects on time and to a high specification, something which was crucial to us when appointing them."
