BIAP Road Renovation
Baghdad International Airport (BIAP) is home to Al-Burhan Group’s integrated business accommodation Al-Burhan Centre, which ABG believes plays a crucial role in the growth of the nation, providing a stepping stone for international companies to work within Iraq. The BIAP area plays host to world-renowned companies and their representatives on a yearly basis allowing for the nation to source the best available resources and expertise.
However, much to ABF's regret, the aesthetic and functionality of BIAP's surrounding area had been ignored for several years, becoming dilapidated, bordering on derelict. The garbage stricken roads - themselves leading directly to Al-Burhan Centre - were littered with holes, cracks and potential hazards, while the banks on either side had become nothing more than sites reminiscent of war-torn dystopias.
ABF, unable to allow such negligence to continue, contacted the necessary authorities and informed them that as a contribution to Iraqi society, ABF would pioneer the revitalisation of a once prosperous stretch of land.
Prior to the Foundation's involvement the road system in and around BIAP had been neglected by the series of companies tasked with managing it. Tired of the lacklustre appearance and degenerate atmosphere conjured by such a sight, ABF took the reins and began work.
The first mammoth task was to clear away all of the debris, rubbish, rubble and junk left behind by previous tenants of the area and numerous demolition works. The clearing process was time-consuming and exhausting on a man-power level, but the work was done in good faith that the benefit to local society would be immense. Once the banks adjacent to the stretch of road had been cleared the road itself was then repaired considerably. Potholes were filled in, dents and ditches smoothed out and correct markings displayed at all points.
Further to the markings laid out was the installation of street signs for the first time in decades. Access and navigation in the area had been an issue for many years, but with the simple intervention of ABF, the area now boasts safety measures in the form of bollards, as well as a truly European aesthetic with the presence of road and business signs.
