Sheremetyevo International Airport, Terminal 3

Sheremetyevo International Airport, one of the largest international airports in the Russian Federation, in addition to various Russian airlines, also serves more than 40 foreign carriers. Sheremetyevo Airport’s principal carrier is Aeroflot Russian Airlines, Russia’s largest air carrier, for which Sheremetyevo serves as the base. Initially, the airport had two terminals, Sheremetyevo 1 and Sheremetyevo 2, providing services for domestic and international routes. OAO AEROFLOT decided to build a third terminal to serve as Aeroflot’s and its alliances’ international terminal. Terminal 3 has a carrying capacity of up to 12 million passengers annually, and with the terminal in operation, Sheremetyevo International Airport complex has reached a total carrying capacity of 3,800 passengers per hour, combining arrivals and departures. ENKA was awarded the turnkey design and build contract by JSC TERMINAL in June 2005.

The terminal building consisted of a six-floor reinforced concrete building. The footprint of the building is 52,000 m2 and a total construction area is 170,000 m2. The height of the terminal building is 38.5 meters, and the roof has a steel structure dome with a diameter of 66 meters and a steel main arch with canopies weighing more than 1,800 tons. The building’s facade is composed of glazing, aluminum composite and natural stone. Apart from the terminal building, major work in the contract included an apron area of 374,000 m2; a multi-story car park for 4,000 cars; a control tower; 12 fixed passenger bridges; various car and bus parks; external facilities, such as a water treatment plant and water supply lines, an MV switch room; infrastructure, including high voltage cable lines, sewage lines, fiber optic cable ducts; construction of the aircraft refueling system, and hard and soft landscaping. Check-in and passport counters and the lounge furniture were also included in the contract work.
