Of all the legendary projects that HOCHTIEF has completed, the international airport at Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, built between 1974 and 1981, stands out among the rest. The entire fenced-off site is 105 square kilometers in size, with four terminals forming the core of the complex. One of these is the Pilgrims’ Terminal, whose signature tent-shaped roof constituted the largest roofed-in area in the world when it was built. The turnkey airport project was also the biggest contract ever placed with a single construction company. And a new chapter is currently being added to our company’s association with Jeddah: Our Australian subsidiary Leighton, through its 45%-owned company Habtoor Leighton Group, has secured the contract to expand the airport maintenance area. This will involve building eleven hangars by 2014, as well as upgrading the apron.
