Meanwhile, Renaissance Construction built and opened to service a 2500-car multi-storey car park, 350–thousand-square-meter platform, and aerodrome for technical maintenance of large aircrafts. Renaissance had also constructed Sheremetyevo Airport’s Terminal B with a capacity of 15 million passengers, and two 2-kilometer tunnels for transporting passengers and luggage under the runways.
The company, which had previously built Terminal B of the same airport, had also constructed two 2-kilometer tunnels for transporting passengers and luggage under the runways. Completing the construction of the Terminal C building in June 2018, the Turkish company also signed a new contract for the reconstruction of one of the runways of the airport.
