Limak sees steady progress on Kuwait Airport's T2 project


Work is moving at a steady pace on the new Kuwait Airport Terminal 2 (T2) project being developed at an investment of $4.3 billion.

Limak Construction, a part of leading Turkish conglomerate Limak Group, is the main contractor of the T2 project, which was designed by Foster + Partner. Structural engineering of the main structure was carried out by Werner Sobek.

The airport project is a key component of Kuwait’s National Development Plan and Vision 2035, “New Kuwait”, which stems from the late Amir Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s vision to transform Kuwait into a leading financial, commercial and cultural hub, said the statement from Limak Group.

The Turkish group has been playing a vital role in constructing Kuwait’s landmark projects through its subsidiary Limak İnşaat Kuwait, and continues to work in full compliance with Covid-19 regulations being implemented by Kuwait government.

Limak İnşaat Kuwait was established in 2016 through the Kuwait Direct Investment Promotion Authority under the Foreign Direct Investment Law as an independent subsidiary of Limak Holding.

Turkey's Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu yesterday (February 9) visited the T2 project site along with the Ambassador of Turkey in Kuwait Ayşe Hilal Sayan Koytak to monitor the progress.

Currently employing 40 Kuwaiti engineers and training over 70 female engineers as part of the company’s ‘Kuwait’s Engineer Girl’s Program’, Limak aims to add permanent value to society by supporting education and learning opportunities in the fields of construction, engineering, architecture, and project management.

They were welcomed by senior representatives from the Turkish company including Limak CEO and Board Member Feyiz Genç and Limak İnşaat Kuwait Country Manager Kayihan Bagdatli, and later given a briefing on the giant project and also the $559 million car park.

Limak began its Kuwait’s foray in 2009 with the company’s first project, the Infectious Diseases Hospital, followed by the West Abdullah Al-Mubarak Housing project, the Kuwait International Airport T2 construction project including Package No. 2, South Abdullah Al-Mubarak Infrastructure Works, and the Al-Mutlaa Residential project (N11).

Limak officials said the company has implemented additional preventive safety precautions on-site and at offices, facilities, and support centres, all of which undergo daily monitoring and compliance checks in accordance with the directions of the Limak Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) team.
