Added value

Groupe ADP has a strong experience in Egypt with a background from the 70's (several years of successful works in Egypt with the design of the ATC Tower in Cairo International Airport and the passenger terminal in Hurghada International Airport or with Management Support services). 

The client highlighted the quality of the concept design based on Egyptian history and deeply appreciated the methodology for the design: ADP Ingénierie proposed three possible designs, giving the client a real choice gathering all specifications and the opportunity to be part of the final design realized by ADP Ingénierie in a co-creation approach. 


The Cairo International Airport (CAI) is the busiest International Airport in Egypt and second busiest airport in Africa. Egyptian citizens call it the "Old Airport". The Terminal 1, the oldest building of the airport originally constructed in 1963, has already seen various renovations over the years. Egypt welcomed nearly 9 million tourists in 2018. The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), has put Cairo on the list of the top cities, which are expecting to receive more tourists in the next decade. The Terminal 1, appreciated by the Egyptian citizen, is ready for further expansion and rehabilitation to meet the best international standards.

In this context, the client requested the renovation of Terminal 1 to give it a fresh and modern shape. The objective is to reboost the attractiveness of this terminal. Another objective is to extend the aircraft and passenger capacity.

After an international tender process, the Chairman of CAI notified ADP INGÉNIERIE (ADPI) and invited it to present three architectural concepts to the Minister of Civil Aviation. The Minister immediately validated the recommendation of the tender committee. ADP INGENIERIE (ADPI) has received the LOA for the design and supervision contract for the rehabilitation and development of Cairo International Airport Terminal 1 from the hand of the Chairman of Cairo Airport Company (CAC).

Our solution

ADP Ingénierie will provide concept design - preliminary design - detailed design & tender documents. Then, our company will be in charge of construction works supervision.

With this first fast track project enabling the rebirth of Cairo International Airport, ADP INGENIERIE (ADPI) forecast a long-term partnership with Cairo Airport Company (CAC) and Egyptian Holding Company Airport and Air Navigation (EHCAAN) for further development of the aviation infrastructure of the country.
