Renovation of runway surface of Abuja’s city airport in record time
2016/2017 (6 weeks)
Milling of 48,000 tons of asphalt and subsequent re-installation at a speed of 4,600 tons per day at peak performance and installation of 55 tons of glass-fibre-grid.
The crucial renovation of the runway (length 3.6 km/ width 45 meters) could only be carried out within a fixed time frame of 6 weeks, a huge challenge for planning and execution. Thanks to the close networking between the planning in Germany and the executing units on site, the project was completed within time: from the initial examination of the existing ground asphalt and planning, procurement, scheduling and logistical coordination through to the actual construction work.
The Julius Berger Group has more than 11,000 employees. In its history of around 50 years, the group has successfully completed more than 600 (major) projects in the field of buildings and about 130 in the area of infrastructure.
