Project for Construction of the Terminal of Kabul International Airport

Client: Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority (ACAA)
Funded By: JICA
Contractor: Dai Nippon Construction Company (DNC)
Year: 2007 – 2008

Scope of Work:
The project of the new Civilian Terminal at  Kabul International Airport (KAIA) encompassed full construction of a terminal building in an operational airport environment. The building included a complex substructure, consisting mainly of foundations including large utility trenches and underground water tanks. Especially complex was the Japanese design which strictly followed very sophisticated seismic standards. The terminal is now fully operational and equipped with world class security and baggage conveying systems – something not available before in Afghanistan.
Finally, the project has been very successful in its overall outcome, and both the Japanese and Afghanistan Government appreciate this building as a token of close friendship between the two countries.
