The Hamad International Airport has revealed plans for its second expansion phase, which will feature a spectacular 10,000m2 indoor tropical garden in a central concourse and a 268m2 water feature as the focal point of the project.
Phase A of the expansion comprises the central concourse linking of concourses D and E. Construction commenced in early 2021 and will increase the airport’s capacity to more than 53 million passengers annually by 2022. Phase B will extend concourses D and E to further enhance the airport’s capacity to more than 60 million passengers annually.
The new central concourse expansion roof at the Hamad International Airport will also be built with duplex stainless steel. This is in addition to the existing airport roof, which is currently the world’s largest stainless steel roof. The duplex stainless steel was selected for its durability, inherent corrosion resistance and low maintenance.
Hamad International Airport selected 316L stainless steel for the internal railings and balustrades as part of the airport expansion project, which is being executed by DSP DOHA. In total, there are 10 different types of balustrades and railings with total quantity of approximately 7,000lm.
The Luxury Boulevard will be the duty free area for the new Hamad International Airport extension.
