Applicants must have a minimum annual net turnover of at least 60 million euros during three previous years and must be able to demonstrate stable financial and economic performance indicators. Requirements are also set for construction experience: applicants will have to prove that they, as the main executors of contract, have been able to build a certain amount of construction in similar type of facilities in recent years. Builder's experience in construction or reconstruction of roads, streets, squares and bridges, experience in working with the building information model and the possibility of attracting a team of qualified and experienced specialists who take responsibility for management of all construction work processes will also be evaluated.

FIDIC Yellow Book contract is expected to be signed with builder, and the project is planned to achieve the BREEAM Excellent level of the sustainability certificate. Construction of new terminal is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2024 and be completed by the end of 2028.

Participants of this event will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves more closely with the developed construction design and its solutions, as well as receive answers to questions before submitting proposals.
