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.
The project will also include link bridges and stair nodes to allow connection to new larger aircraft stands and an extension to the south east pier to provide additional departure/arrival gates.
Located on Glasgow Road, eight miles from the west of city, Edinburgh Airport is Scotland’s busiest airport and recently experienced the busiest ever month for a Scottish airport, carrying more than 1.4 million passengers in July. It’s also the fastest growing airport in the UK.
Work has started on site with completion scheduled for autumn 2018.
Bruce Dickson, regional director at BAM Construction, said: “TEP is a significant infrastructure project and we are absolutely delighted to have been selected by EAL to deliver the first phase of this scheme.”
Capital director at Edinburgh Airport, Ian Lang, said: “This is a major investment for the capital and Scotland and means we will be providing the first class infrastructure the airport needs to handle more passengers and provide them with a positive experience. BAM have extensive experience in delivering complex projects on time and to a high specification, something which was crucial to us when appointing them.”
