BAM to complete construction of Schiphol A pier
Schiphol has awarded the definitive contract for the completion of its A Pier to BAM Bouw en Techniek. During the tendering procedure, BAM Bouw en Techniek convincingly demonstrated that it had the capacity in house to take on this contract. The focus of the tendering procedure was on cooperation within an integrated construction team and stakeholder management.
BAM will start work in September. During the first phase of the project, Schiphol and BAM will agree a schedule and determine the expected costs for completion of the pier. As one of the regular maintenance contractors and in previous major construction projects at Schiphol, BAM has already demonstrated its ability to carry out major construction jobs in a complex aviation environment.
Most sustainable pier
The new pier will be the most sustainable at Schiphol, thanks to design elements such as biomaterial, insulating glass, and reusable plastic and marble rubblework tiles. The pier also featured 5,000 m2 of solar panels and use rainwater to flush the toilets.
