Hochtief Polska and Hochtief Solutions have informed the media of the completion of raw closed state of reconstruction and modernization of passengers’ terminal T1 at Chopin Airport in Warsaw. The investment has been ordered by Public Company ‘Porty Lotnicze’. The works are due to end by the end of 2014.
The works include the reconstruction and modernization of T1 terminal and integrating it with terminal T2. Before the works have begun, the T1 terminal has been demolished. The companies will also build a 60 meter long tunnel which will connect the terminal with the Fast City Railway (SKM) station and provide a luggage service system (BHS). The terminal will be complete in terms of functionality, architecture and technology.
Ever since the beginning of works in September in the previous year, we’ve conducted the demolition of the terminal, finished reinforcing works connected with the modernization of the current structure and set up a completely new, steel construction of the building along with adding a roof and a façade to the entire cubature of the construction. These actions were of strategic importance before the winter – said Adam Janus, head of the construction in HOCHTIEF Poland – Warsaw Department. The works connected with installation of separate airport systems are in an advanced stage as well. At the time, we’re conducting the works on the interior and continuing the branch works, making the terminal ready for the integration – he adds.
