BAM considered a perfect fit for Edinburgh Airport
Glasgow, 17 January 2018 - BAM Construction has been awarded a £10 million contract to fit-out the new terminal extension at Edinburgh Airport.
Once complete the new three storey terminal building will provide expanded domestic and international arrival facilities including baggage reclaim, border control, additional food/beverage outlets, expanded lounge space and new office accommodation at Scotland’s busiest airport.
At the start of 2017 BAM was appointed to deliver the first phase of the terminal expansion project which forms part of a wider £80 million investment in the airport. Work on the project is already well underway with the new terminal building due to open in late 2018.
Bruce Dickson, Regional Director, BAM Construction, said: ‘This is an exciting and significant project and we are delighted to be part of the team delivering it. All airport users will benefit from an enhanced travelling experience befitting Edinburgh’s standing as a global business and tourist destination.’
Ian Lang, Capital Director, Edinburgh Airport, added: ‘As Edinburgh Airport continues to grow it’s important we provide infrastructure that is fit for purpose and meets the needs of passengers and our airline partners whilst maintaining day to day operations. BAM Construction understand and share our focus on that and we are happy to extend that partnership as we further enhance passenger facilities at Scotland’s busiest airport.’
