An extension to terminal two of Dubai International Airport is reported to include a significantly reduced scope of works compared to previous documents. Dubai’s Department of Civil Aviation has invited contractors to bid for works under a revised package entitled AX272/F. The project has been previously tendered twice before under a package named AX273. Sources report that the revised scope of works included in the new package is “considerably smaller and only around 15% of the original package”. Package AX272 includes structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing installations. It will finalise work for the extension and refurbishment of the existing terminal facilities. Individual packages of work for the extension project, including the MEP installation, will be procured through the main contractor. All packages, including civil engineering works are currently at tender stage. Tenders are scheduled for submission by mid-September and a start date for the work has yet to be confirmed. A spokesperson for Dubai International Airport stated: “We are working to a revised programme.” Contractors confirmed to be submitting bids for the MEP installation on the extension include Thermo and ETA. The contract duration for the package once rewarded is expected to be 315 days. The consultant for the expansion project are Dar ADPi and Aeroports de Paris.
