American construction consultancy Hill International, project manager for Bahrain International Airport's $1.1bn (BHD 414.7m) passenger terminal building and modernisation project, revealed that the scheme's construction team had achieved 10 million safe man-hours. 

The New York-listed firm's announcement came days after Bahrain’s Minister of Transportation and Telecommunication, Eng Kamal Bin Ahmed Mohamed, revealed that the airport modernisation programme is 80% complete and on track to complete by Q3 2019.

In a LinkedIn post, Hill International commended the team working on the aviation hub for prioritising safety whilst working on the megaproject, and congratulated its vice president and project director, Uzair Wasif, for the achievement. 

A joint venture of Arabtec and TAV was appointed main contractor in 2016 to build a passenger terminal building, a services building, and an aircraft bay for Bahrain International Airport's expansion.

According to information available on construction intelligence platform ProTenders, the new passenger terminal building will cover a built-up area of 20.7ha and accommodate 14 million passengers per year.
