GEG is developing the detailed design of the New Bugesera International Airport in Rwanda for Mota-Engil Africa, since the first half of 2017.
This project is part of an ambitious investment program from the Government of Rwanda with the aim of transform Kigali in a tourist and business destination and the to make this new airport a hub for Rwanda Air.
The New Bugesera International Airport has an initial estimate capacity of 1.7 million passengers per year and an estimated initial investment of about 375 million euros and is under construction since August 2017. The airport is located about 30 km from the capital city, Kigali, and presents itself as a modern and appealing alternative to the current airport, that is foreseen to be available in 2020.
Within the scope of this project, GEG is responsible for the coordination and design of all engineering disciplines, including the structures and infrastructures of sixteen buildings (comprising the Passenger Terminal, ATC Tower, Airport Maintenance Hangar, Office Building, Cargo and Presidential Terminal, between other important buildings) and also the airport infrastructures, namely the runway and taxiways; the roads located at the airport (landside and airside) and the Expressway that will connect the airport to the capital Kigali. In this project, GEG has been developing the projects in BIM.
