Limak Construction, part of leading Turkish conglomerate Limak Group, is the main contractor on the terminal project, which was designed by Foster + Partners. In June, it was reported that work was moving at a steady pace on T2 with 40% of the project completed.

Once completed, the project will be one of the most advanced and eco-friendly airports in the world.
