Continuing the work on the ambitious new Airport terminal development project, Riga Airport has this week announced a discussion on the construction procurement qualification requirements with applicants.
The new terminal building of Riga Airport with a modern passenger check-in hall, security and border control area, shops and cafes, baggage handling facility; new access roads for private and public transport, a multi-story car park and a connection to the Rail Baltica station together form stage 6 of the Airport's development, the total scope of construction of which will be more than 45 000 m2, but the investments are estimated in the amount of EUR 167 million.
"This is a truly ambitious project for the future of the Airport with a significant amount of investment, which is necessary for Riga Airport to grow into an air hub of Northern Europe. We encourage the construction industry already now, before the announcement of the construction tender, to get involved in the discussion to develop as complete and high-quality documentation of this important procurement as possible and to get to know the possibilities of potential applicants," says Laila Odiņa, Chairperson of the Board of Riga Airport.
Documents for the discussion on the qualification requirements for construction procurement applicants are available on the website of the Procurement Monitoring Bureau of Latvia. Interested suppliers may submit their comments on the defined qualification requirements and the description of the procurement subject by sending them within ten working days – by October 3rd (inclusive) to the e-mail address [email protected].
After collecting proposals, the qualifications of applicants will be announced at the beginning of October, which will be followed by stage 2 of construction procurement – submission of proposals. Currently, it is expected that the construction contract could be concluded at the end of the summer of 2024, when the construction works should also begin. The construction will take place in several successive stages to ensure the continuity of the Airport's operations.
