With the construction of Terminal 3, Fraport is making a major investment to position Frankfurt Airport as Germany‘s gateway to the world for the future. In doing so, the airport operator is drawing both on its own experience implementing infrastructure projects and on regional expertise. Well over 500 individual contracts are being awarded for the project, most of them to local construction companies. This is giving a boost to the regional economy while creating an important new landmark for Frankfurt Airport and the entire Rhine-Main Region. The work to build the new terminal at Germany’s largest airport sets new records: a construction pit with an expanse of 65,900 square meters, up to 4,000 construction workers, and a roof the size of two and a half soccer fields that will be pushed onto the building in a single piece. A long list of construction experts including architects and planners as well as underwater divers and climbing specialists is needed to finalize this incredibly complex undertaking. Every effort is also being made to avoid harming the environment.
