Glad you've said that!

It's just me or this new terminal has some Aalto into it?

How utterly pathetic:

Turkish firm Limak set to win Kuwait airport deal

http://www.tradearabia.com/news/TTN_306817.html

Quote:
The Kuwait government is set to award a major contract to Turkish firm Limak Construction for the construction, furnishing and maintenance of a new passenger terminal building at Kuwait Airport, said a report.
This is the same Al-Kharafi-backed Turkish consortium that was disqualified by the ministry of public works more than a year ago. It goes to show that the Kuwaiti government is still kowtowing to the Al-Kharafi family.

I don't think we should expect a five-star airport terminal.

The contract has been signed.
Quote:
Limak signs $4.34bn deal to build Kuwait International Airport terminal

Turkey’s Limak Construction has signed a contract to build the new terminal at Kuwait International Airport.

The development comes nine months after reports first emerged that it had won the work, and more than 18 months after reports said that all initial bids had been rejected.

The company, which is part of the 50,000-strong Limak Holding group, submitted a bid of US$4.34 billion to carry out the work and was told by Kuwait’s central tenders committee last August that its bid was the lowest.

Once complete, the new passenger terminal will have a capacity to handle 25 million passengers per year and be able to handle all aircraft types through 51 new gates and stands. The Foster + Partners-designed terminal is due to take six years to complete, but Limak’s contract also includes a further two-year maintenance contract.

The contract-signing ceremony was attended by Kuwait’s minister of public works, Ali Al Omair; the president of its civil aviation directorate, Fawaz Al Farah; and the Limak Group vice chairman, Sezai Bacaksız.

The procurement process for the 708,000 square metre terminal has been running for several years. Foster + Partners’ designs for the project, which features an ability to generate 12 megawatts of solar power through 66,000 roof panels, were first unveiled in October 2011.

Limak and its Kuwaiti agent Kharafi National were initially revealed to have submitted the lowest bid to build the project – at $4.78bn – in November 2014. However, at the time, the ministry of works decided to reject all of the bids on the table and re-tendered the project, before eventually re-awarding it to Limak for the slightly lower sum. A project supervision package has also been tendered, but not yet awarded.

“The project is more than an airport, it’s a link between the two countries; – Kuwait and Turkey – between two economies, between two societies," said Mr Bacaksız.

“As a result of this link, new technologies will be introduced and transferred, new jobs will be created locally, planned local procurement will be in the hundreds of millions of dollars, local businesses will flourish – all while we train and equip Kuwaiti men and women through various education and empowerment initiatives that we have planned for Kuwait over the next six years and beyond."

More than 1 million cubic metres of concrete and more than 100,000 tonnes of structural steel will be used in the terminal’s construction, which has been designed with a single roof canopy containing glazed openings aimed at letting in light while deflecting heat.

It is hoped that once construction completes, the terminal will be awarded Leed Gold sustainability status.

The Arabian Gulf’s governments have continued to spend on developing airports despite challenges arising from lower oil prices constraining budgets, with Dubai’s recent award of a contract to Alec to expand Al Maktoum International’s terminal from a capacity of 5 million passengers to 26.5 million the most recent example.

Writing in Deloitte’s new GCC Powers of Construction report, the firm’s regional head of airports, Dorian Reece, said that several governments across the region are looking at alternative ways of funding airport development, including potential privatisations and public-private partnerships (PPP).

“Saudi Arabia has announced a pipeline of airport PPPs, building upon its recent announcement of granting an operate and maintain [O&M)]concession for Riyadh Airport," said Mr Reece.

The kingdom’s first PPP airport project opened at Madinah in July last year and was built by a consortium including Turkey’s Tav Construction, Al Rajhi Group and Saudi Oger.

The O&M contract for King Khalid International Airport’s Terminal 5 building was awarded to Dublin Airports Authority International (DAAI) in February. DAAI’s sister firm ARI also secured a 10-year contract to run retail operations at Abu Dhabi International’s new Midfield Terminal Building last December.

Well, normally I wouldn't care to reply, as your biased standing and troll behavior is already approved by the brigs you have received, but from the article it is clear that ministry estimates included several important mistakes at first.

"The re-tendering was carried out after the ministry asked its advisers to restudy the cost estimates who accordingly increased the estimates from KD 1 billion to KD 1.25 billion, he said. This raise came although some key components of the project were cancelled."

Not surprising for me, as a civil engineer studied many tenders in the GCC region. Looks like only exception for Kuwait is a parliament dared to outline how the bid was handled unprofessionally.

Btw, no worries, if your technical specifications are well prepared you will receive a 5 star airport, no matter what. If not, it means you have never asked for it.

The only time I ever received an infraction on this forum was when I confronted a racist, sexist, pro-genocide Turkish troll who just so happened to be a sockpuppet of a banned member, so don't make up lies about me and please spare us your garbage. There's no shame in getting brigged for standing up to your bigoted countrymen, and I'd gladly do it again.

As for the Kuwaiti-Turkish consortium, I'm not the least bit interested in your opinion. Most people in Kuwait are well aware of how corrupt and untrustworthy this consortium is.
