The original contract between TAV and the Turkish State Airport Authority (GHMI) called for the construction and operation of the new international terminal and car park at the Adnan Menderes International Airport in Izmir on a BOT basis. This Build-Operate-Transfer agreement specified an initial construction phase of 24 months followed by an operation period of six years and eight months. Since the complex was completed eight months earlier than the due date, the balance of eight months was added to the operational phase.
Following the start on July 2005, by using its special fast construction technology, TAV Construction completed the project in only 15 and ½ months.
TAV Construction’s futuristic and fast construction model can be fully recognized in new Adnan Menderes International Airport in Izmir. Perhaps the highlight of the airport is the terminal itself. Open and spacious, white steel beams and columns complement large glass walls, appropriately conveying the spectacular ambience of this breezy and sunny southwestern region of Turkey.
