Berlin-Tempelhof Airport

The scope of services of M&P

  • Preparation of the tender for technical, infrastructural and commercial FM services for the entire property – in accordance with the provisions of public procurement law
  • Support in the procurement process and implementation

Ground control to M&P: in 2018, our team was commissioned with the preparation and implementation of a tender for FM services on the property of the former ‘central airport’ Berlin-Tempelhof.

The former Berlin-Tempelhof airport building was largely completed at the beginning of the Second World War in 1939. Apart from the check-in hall and the roof of the terminal, the airport suffered no major war-related damage. As a result, from the end of the war until the end of the blockade, the so-called Allied Candy Bombers were able to take off and land safely.

In the 1950s, the airport was reopened for civilian use.

Since the cessation of flight operations in 2008, the 1.2 km long building of the historic airport has at different times been a location for companies and institutions, had various temporary uses, and operated as a versatile event location and tourist attraction. From autumn 2015 until, potentially, the end of 2019, the state of Berlin has also used parts of the building for refugee aid purposes.

A special feature of the property is that it is protected in its entirety as a historical monument.
