Construction of the terminal building for the Argyle International Airport is set to commence soon.
At its meeting on Tuesday November 30th, The Board of Directors of the International Airport Development Company Limited (IADC) approved the awarding of contract for the construction of the terminal building to the Taiwanese firm, Overseas Engineering and Construction Company Ltd. (OECC).
This contract will see the terminal building constructed at a cost of US$25,094,530. Construction work is set to commence in January 2011.
The modern terminal building was designed by another Taiwanese firm, CECI Engineering Consultants Inc. The terminal building will have three floors, with 139 thousand square feet of floor space.
The building is designed to accommodate approximately 1.4 million passengers per year. This capacity is more than 5 times the number of passengers currently passing through the E. T. Joshua Airport in any year.
At the expected rate of growth of passengers, the Argyle International Airport terminal building, as designed, is expected to meet our needs for the next 20 years.
