New International Airport for Mexico City

New International Airport for Mexico City

Mexico City New International Airport is a new infrastructure project designed by Sir Normal Forter and launched in 2014. It is aiming to provide Mexico’s capital with a new state-of-the-art airport hub by 2020. The project is located to the East of Mexico City. The project will install an annual passenger capacity of 68 million passengers, more than the previous Benito Juarez Airport (41.7 million passengers annually, already the busiest airport of Latin America). The project features a X-shaped passenger terminal, 3 runways and a control tower.

For this, the largest infrastructure project in Latin America, Dextra has been involved with the supply of its Bartec Rebar Couplers for the foundations of the terminal building (contractor ICA), the transport building (contractor Sacyr) and the control tower (contractor Aldesa).

Bartec coupler, often prefered in seismic areas such as Mexico, substitute on this project all reinforcement lapping of large ASTM #12 rebar (equivalent 38mm). On such large diameters, it is both faster and cheaper to connect bars with couplers rather than traditionnal overlapping.
