Concourse 3 is an extension, yet integral part, of the continuous development of Concourses 1 and 2 at Dubai International Airport. Partially an underground structure, including Automated People Moving (APM) stations for both arrivals and departures, the concourse extends above ground under a metal shell to accommodate 20 aircraft stands – 18 of which are designed to accommodate the Airbus 380 – in addition to holding room for six more aircraft on remote stands.
Similar to Concourse 2, the building shell of Concourse 3 has the same characteristics of size and shape. With an overall footprint of 90m by 645m on a built area of approximately 528,000m², the building includes the Emirates airline lounges and hotels, as well as the arrival and departure floors with a duty-free area.
Approximately 1 million m³ of reinforced concrete was poured over a two-year period for this contract. It is the single largest Dubai contract to date undertaken by Al Naboodah Construction Group and employed 7,500 people.
