GFC Construction, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, has been contracted to design and build the new Terminal 1 of Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport in France.

Aéroports de Lyon awarded the €142 million contract to a consortium headed by GFC Construction, and which also includes the architects RHSP and Chabanne & Partners, Technip TPS, Cap Ingélec and Inddigo.

The new Terminal 1 will cover 70,000 m2 on three levels. The construction will take the form of an extension to the current Terminals 1 and 3.

In all, the airport’s annual passenger capacity will total around 10 million. Construction is expected to begin in autumn 2014, with the first phase scheduled for handover in 2016.
