Eindhoven Airport has selected Heijmans as contractor for the expansion of the existing passenger terminal at Eindhoven Airport. The provisional award by the second airport in the Netherlands recently became final.
Heijmans won the tender thanks to the best price-quality ratio, which scored highly on cooperation, the proposed project organization and plan of approach. The tender has an expected contract value of more than EUR 30 million.
More comfort for the same passenger volume
The expansion will provide more comfort for travelers and employees because there will soon be more space for airport processes and services. The airport is expanding the terminal because it is too small. The terminal is built for 5 million passengers per year. In 2019 (pre-corona) the airport had 6,7 million passengers. The airport expects to return to that level.
The work concerns the extension of the terminal, including the baggage handling area, the internal renovations in the departure hall and the expansion of the reception hall. In total, this concerns approximately 10.000 m2 of additional terminal space. The current terminal is approximately 26.000 square metres.
Design, planning and phasing
The final design will be ready in the first quarter of 2023. Construction will start at the end of 2023. The expansion will be completed in the second half of 2025. Parts of it are already being put into use in phases.
Objectives and ambitions
Eindhoven Airport finds the current terminal too small to offer its travelers the desired quality and comfort. Eindhoven Airport also has the ambition to be CO2-neutral by the year 2030. Heijmans gives substance to this by contributing knowledge and expertise from the design phase as a construction team partner on how the architect's design can be realized technically and sustainably and how construction can be done. be integrated into the normal operational course of business at Eindhoven Airport, according to the construction company.
