Donetsk International Airport (DOK) serves the industrial region of Ukraine. The airport currently handles 1.0 million passengers per annum (mppa). The project (Phase 1) was for the provision of all engineering, procurement and construction services for a new runway / taxiway system, new 50,000m2 passenger terminal and associated aircraft aprons, new car park and roadway system expansion. The new 10-gate international and domestic terminal was designed to accommodate 5.0 mppa, and initially help provide the capacity required for the Ukraine to host the pending UEFA EURO 2012 championships. Post the championships, the new terminal was to help user in a new modern aviation system within the Ukraine.
MAR Development Corp. (MAR) became involved in the project as the design was nearing completion and construction was beginning to commence. MAR was able to initiate a number of design changes that fundamentally affected and improved the operational efficiency and economic viability of the new terminal. MAR was also instrumental in working with the local general contractors and the Ukraine National Agency (Government Agency responsible for project delivery) to provide high level construction monitoring services and help promote safety, schedule recovery, and quality assurance, to ensure the facilities were delivered in time for the UEFA EURO 2012 championships.
