A notable number of our customers and project partners – including architects and engineers – are repeat customers. This is the best indicator for their satisfaction with our company’s performance. We often follow the in the footsteps of our project partners, such as Arup, when entering the Azeri market with a mutual project. After the award-winning Baku Tollgate, the successful partnership continued with a variety of features related to the Baku Airport complex, mainly the new International Terminal. The airport is subject to an ongoing development plan, in order to accommodate an expected 3 million passengers a year in addition to the prosperous cargo business in this increasingly popular hub airport. The new terminal's architectural shape is based on a tripod with a clear base geometry. During the early design development process Waagner Biro Steel and Glass assisted with our expertise to influence and plan the construction and design methodology, ensuring the result was an economic solution which maintained the architectural design concept. Waagner Biro Steel and Glass’s scope included not only the full envelope - facade, roof and passenger bridges - but also the structural steel, with its impressive roof grid and tree columns. At the time, this was the largest single contract for the company in its long history.
