This world class building is designed to accommodate up to 27 million passengers annually
As part of the Abu Dhabi 2030 Plan (the emirate wide strategy to facilitate Abu Dhabi’s business and tourism growth), the Abu Dhabi government has approved the construction of the Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC) at ADIA. This world class building is designed to accommodate up to 27 million passengers annually (8,500 passenger capacity/hour) in order to meet the future needs of one of the fastest growing airports in the world.
The construction contract for this landmark project was signed between Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) and TAV-CCC-Arabtec Joint Venture.
The 700,000 m2 terminal building is located between the north and south runways, allowing for more stands and a quicker, smoother experience for passengers. The building’s design includes a unique undulating roof that is expected to be visible from over 1.5 km away, rising 52 m above aluminum roof cladding set on 84,000 tons of structural steel. The envelope also includes over 200,000 m2 of high performance glass curtain wall. The concrete works measure approximately 640,000 m3, with 130,000 tons of reinforcement and over 1.5 million m2 of formwork required, and placement will peak at 2,000 m3 per day.
