A leading airport for the Croatian capital
Bouygues Bâtiment International, in association with local company Viadukt, has designed and built the new international terminal of Zagreb Airport – 710,000 sqft floor area, 1,076,391 sqft of taxiways, eight self-service boarding gates, 30 check-in desks and 1,195 parking spaces. This new project provides Croatia with an airport boasting state-of-the-art equipment, some of which has been used for the first time in Croatia, such as a baggage sorting system that gives 3D images of the content of luggage.
The airport is now capable of handling 5 million passengers annually (compared to capacity of 2.8 million); this could be raised to 8 million passengers per year at a later stage. In terms of both quantity and quality, this is a massive leap forwards for the Croatian capital, which is seeking to make itself more attractive to European tourists and investors.
Bouygues Bâtiment International was lead industrial sponsor to structure a €212 million non-recourse project financing facility. The adventure is far from being over for Bouygues Bâtiment International which remains leading shareholder of the concession company through its subsidiary Bouygues Construction Airport Concessions, actively contributing to the continuous development of the airport.
The roof structure is made up of 45,000 elements, each different from the others.
The Works switched to post-tensioned concrete for the floors and connected the drainage system to the city’s water treatment plan. To avoid any risk of flooding, 25 miles of pipe were installed under the 710,000 sqft of the terminal, the 1,076,000 sqft of taxiways, and the 430,000 sqft of aircraft parking stands. This new terminal is also LEED® Silver certification, which acknowledges measures taken to increase its environmental performance, including a rainwater recovery system to provide water for the toilets and the use of concrete with titanium content to capture CO2.
