Areen has revealed exclusive images of its interior design for the new terminal at King Abdulalziz International Airport, Jeddah (KAIA).
Contractor SBG won the US$7bn construction contract on design and build terms and awarded Areen the interior design and supply management contract.
Much of the design work has already been agreed, with final details progressing as the construction continues.
Enabling works started on site in February 2011. Basic infrastructure and structural work is already well advanced with interior works due to commence in the main terminal later this year.
Areen has two briefs that encompass the entire airport – the first is for design of the interiors for the whole project including the passenger terminal complex, the control tower, the new railway station and the numerous support and ancillary buildings, including a 120-key airport hotel.
The second brief is for the management of procurement of interior finishings and furnishings throughout the entire project.
