This includes the construction of a new terminal (30 Mpax), 52 parking lots, a transport hub (station, bus, subway…), a new control tower (130m), new road access, loading centers, and energy production, as well as 360 000 m² of parking space for a new platform with a total surface area of 900 000 m². MESLI CONSULTING was contacted by ADPI for project management and contract management services for the duration of the project from their Paris offices and in Saudi Arabia.
