The Spanish firm Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas S.A. has been hired to build a new hangar at Juan Santamaría airport. The contract is for 25 million euros or about $34 million.
The hangar, which will be used by a maintenance firm, will be able to accommodate six Boeing 757s. It will cover 21,894 square meters or about 235,665 square feet.
The Consejo de Aviación civil is relocating the maintenance facility to give the airport concession holder Aeris, space to build more passenger ramps.
In Costa Rica, the company is expanding the Cañas-Liberia national highway in Guanacaste and holds the concession (through Globalvía) to operate the San José-Caldera toll road. At the end of 2012, FCC obtained a contract to build the control tower at Colombia’s El Dorado airport, which ranks first in Latin America in terms of cargo volume and third in passenger traffic.
