The National Secretariat for Civil Aviation (SAC) of the Ministry of Infrastructure (MInfra) approved the start of renovation and expansion work at the regional airport of Governador Valadares / MG on Wednesday (21).

The R $ 36 million project uses the Building Information Modeling (BIM) method for intelligent building. When the work, scheduled for 2022, is completed, the terminal is estimated to accommodate more than 100,000 passengers per year and operate medium-sized aircraft.

MInfra’s investment includes the restoration of the runway and take-off, regularization of runway lanes and headland safety areas, reform of the drainage system, the new taxiway and the new airport. In addition, a new passenger terminal and ancillary building with more than 2,000 square meters, a new fire compartment, parking spaces for vehicles and adjustments to the access road will be built. The improvements include a new lighting system, equipment and aids for flight navigation. The funds come from the National Civil Aviation Fund (FNAC).

BIM TECHNOLOGY – Currently, the National Secretariat of Civil Aviation of MInfra has a portfolio of companies under the regional aviation investment program, which includes interventions and deliveries to nearly one hundred airports and projects, equipment and equipment totaling R $ 1.5 billion includes construction. Projects are currently being carried out for 16 airports in 13 Brazilian countries, which are expected to adopt the BIM methodology.

Via SAC and the National Ministry of Transport Infrastructure (DNIT), MInfra is one of the federal authorities promoting the implementation of the methodology for preparing projects with BIM technology. Together with the expansion works of the airport Maringá / PR and the Passo Fundo / RS, the airport Governador Valadares is now the third regional aviation project of the Ministry of Infrastructure, whose projects use this new methodology.

“The main objective in implementing BIM is to encourage the elaboration of more detailed and planned projects and to have fewer surprises during the execution of the work, with the possibility of reducing costs”, says the Director of Investments of SAC, Eduardo Bernardi.
