Saudi Bin Ladin Group has picked up the US $250 million (SR938 million) build-operate-transfer contract to build the Hajj Terminal at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah.

The contractor, in partnership with Aéroports de Paris, scored 76.75 points, followed by Saudi Arabian Alessyi /Ballah and Spanish Abertis with 74.32. Turkey’s TAV and Saudi-based Al Talayi Establishment came third with 59.68 points.

Speaking to Construction Week, a spokesperson for Saudi Bin Ladin Group said: “The contract is a BOT that will span a period of 20 years. Construction is expected to begin after the first Hajj, which will be in the middle of January 2007, and part of it will be ready in January 2008 to accommodate that year’s pilgrims.”

The terminal will spread across 500,000m2 of land and the work will involve the construction of one permanent terminal building.

International Finance Corporation (IFC) is the consultant.

The existing Hajj Terminal accommodates the one million pilgrims who make their way to Mecca each year. The building is roofed by a fabric tension structure that covers 40.5ha.
