Arturo-Merino-Benítez International Airport, Santiago de Chile, Chile
The Arturo-Merino-Benítez International Airport project in Santiago de Chile is proceeding apace. The goal is to double the airport’s capacity to 30 million passengers per year. In addition to construction of a new international terminal, the programme calls for renovation of the existing facility, which will become a domestic terminal.
The same degree of information thanks to BIM
To successfully conduct this large, multi-faceted €790 million project, the VINCI Group is applying its integrated concession-construction model. Relations with the various participants are made easier by use of BIM (Building Information Modeling), which gives all parties access to the same degree of information, and which daily updates and pools the models that will subsequently also be used in building maintenance and operation. VINCI Construction Grands Projets leads the joint venture with Astaldi that is carrying out the design-build project.
