Bunnik, the Netherlands, 19 April 2013 - BAM International, the operating company of Royal BAM Group active outside Europe, has been awarded the contract to design and construct the new Terminal 3 complex including associated works at the Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Client is Tanzania Airports Authority. The contract value of phase 1 of the project amounts tomore than €130 million. BAM International will be executing the project in a joint venture with UK sister company BAM Nuttall. The Dutch sister company BAM Advies & Engineering is involved as one of the design-partners.

The new terminal is designed (together with NACO, Netherlands Airport Consultants) for the anticipated growth of international air traffic, leaving the existing international Terminal 2 to cater for domestic flights. Phase 1 of the scope of work comprises the construction of the main terminal building - facilitating 3.5 million annual passengers - including parking lots, access roads, platforms, and a taxiway. The second phase will then provide further capacity to facilitate 6 million annual passengers. The design of the roof is inspired on the traditional sailing boats that can be found at the Dar es Salaam coast.
In 2010 BAM International completed phase 2 of the renovation of the Airport’s infrastructure, comprising the rehabilitation of all taxiways and the air ground lighting. Phase 1, completed in 2006 by BAM International, involved the rehabilitation of the main runway and the upgrading of the terminal 2 apron.
BAM has been involved in the construction, extension or renovation of many airports, including Schiphol and Eindhoven in the Netherlands, Terminal 2 Munich and Berlin Brandenburg in Germany, Zaventem and Charlerois in Belgium, Cork in Ireland, Bristol, Newcastle and East Midlands in the United Kingdom, Harare in Zimbabwe and Sheikh Rashid terminal in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
