In Israel, only one airport was constructed: Ben Gurion Airport 2000. The company, in collaboration with Amanet and the American project management company Lehrer McGovern & Bovis, constructed Ben Gurion Airport 2000, which was selected as one of Europes nicest and most successful airport. The quality of construction is exceptional, especially the types of concrete and the facades.

Additionally, the company supervised the construction of the military airfield at Ramon, built by the United States during Israels withdrawal from Sinai.

The companys job included supreme supervision over the construction of runways, underground hangars, various structures, and the various electromechanical, communication, and infrastructure systems.


 

Passageways
The movement of passengers at the airport from the ticketing counters to the airplanes, and in the opposite direction, requires provision of guidance, a nice environment, and comfortable passenger-moving facilities. The solution provided is beautiful, comfortable, uses aesthetic and durable materials, and includes unique constructive solutions such as suspending the ceiling by the one above it.
 

Building Interior
The architects succeeded in integrating a functional solution for the movement of arriving and departing passengers, luggage, and all other services needed for airport users and passengers using an impressive architectural design and widespread use of Israeli materials, coating the walls with exposed stone, unique geometrical shapes such as pillars and capitals that double as air conditioning ducts. This integration gave it an appearance which is very tasteful, aesthetic, prestigious, and beautiful.
