Edinburgh, 24 August 2017 - BAM Construction has been appointed by Edinburgh Airport Ltd to deliver the first phase of their Terminal Expansion Project (TEP). Once completed TEP will provide 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.
