Standing out with the projects undertaken at the Middle East and Gulf Region, TAV Construction is named the world's largest company of 2016 in airport construction. Having been listed as the top company for three years in a row, the total contract value of the projects TAV Construction has undertaken so far has exceeded $18.5 bln.

Having become one of the leaders of the sector in a short period following a rapid growth through the projects it realized in Turkey and in the countries within the region, TAV Construction secured its place as the world’s largest company in airport construction sector. One of the respectable publications of the construction sector, Engineering News Record (ENR) has announced the world's largest construction companies based on the projects they undertook in 2016. Being the only Turkish company listed in "Transportation" category amongst the top 30 companies, TAV hit the top in "airport" category in 2016, following 2014 and 2015.

TAV Group President & CEO Sani Şener said: “We are glad and proud to maintain our top ranking in ENR list for three years and successfully represent the achievements of our country in engineering and contracting fields. Starting its journey with Istanbul Atatürk Airport, TAV Construction has been focused on design and construction of airports. The goal was to specialize in these business fields and become one of the world's highly-preferred brands. Including the New Terminal Building Project of Bahrein Airport which TAV Construction was awarded in 2016, the company will have built a total of 16 airports in the Middle East and North Africa region -seven of them are the gateways of the capital cities of their respective countries. The expertise and know-how of more than 30,000 employees lie behind this success. We will continue to be a true representative of our country as a global brand preferred throughout the world."

Whilst the total contract value of the projects the company has undertaken so far has exceeded $18.5 bln, TAV Construction completed Istanbul Atatürk, Ankara Esenboğa, Izmir Adnan Menderes and Gazipaşa-Alanya airports projects in Turkey.

TAV Construction's overseas projects are Doha Airport in Qatar, Tbilisi and Batumi airports in Georgia, Enfidha-Hammamet Airport in Tunisia, Skopje and Ohrid airports in Macedonia, and also Cairo Airport Terminal 3 Project in Egypt, Madinah Airport and Riyadh Airport Terminal 5 Project in Saudi Arabia.
