The Midfield Terminal Building was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates together with Ove Arup, NACO and BNP Associates.

Indian contractor Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has been awarded an AED 943.11 million (US$ 255 million) contract by Abu Dhabi Airports Company for the development of its Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC).

The MTC airside construction project is part of the major expansion programme of Abu Dhabi International Airport. It consists of a Midfield Terminal Building (MTB) and related airside and landside work.

L&T will build concrete hard stands for aircraft parking around the new Midfield Terminal Building, including contact and remote stands. The airside works also include taxi lanes along the apron parking stands and link taxiway connections to the existing airside infrastructure with a tunnel on the airside.

The project will include earthwork, concrete pavement, asphalt pavement with markings, drainage, general utilities, airfield ground lighting, gate services such as flood lighting, visual dock guidance system and structural works/systems for airside tunnel.

The MTC development also includes an aircraft fuel hydrant system, storm & portable water distribution line, chilled water distribution system, medium voltage distribution sub-stations, communication network and fire main distribution system on the major utility segments.

Work will commence this month and is scheduled for completion in 2017.
