Structural work has been completed this month on the new Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport terminal.
“The completion of the steel construction work on the [terminal] roof marks the end of another important phase of construction,” said BBI Operations Managing Director Manfred Körtgen.
“Our next job is to start work on the interior: over 12,000 panes of glass have already been fitted, work on the baggage sorting hall is in full swing and the first jetways will be installed in August,” he added.
A total of 156,000m3 of concrete and over 30,000 t of steel was used to build the 220m-long, 180-m-wide and 32m-high terminal.
Construction of the new €3.6M (£3.1M) airport commenced in September 2006, with the first plane scheduled to land in the airport in October 2011.
