Auckland International Airport Ltd has appointed a specialist consortium to lead design of the “airport of the future”, starting with creation of a combined domestic & international terminal.
The consortium will be led by management, engineering & development consultancy Mott MacDonald NZ Ltd, and includes Grimshaw Architects NZ Ltd, Architectus & Holmes Consulting Ltd.
Auckland Airport chief executive Adrian Littlewood said: “The selected consortium’s experience covers over 1000 aviation projects in 120 countries across 260 airports. In addition to specialist experience & knowledge, the consortium’s architects have a proven record of successfully bringing local cultural influence into the fabric of their passenger-focused design. This is a significant factor for us as we build a world-class airport with a uniquely New Zealand feel.”
The scope of the design project covers building works over the next 10 years. This includes the new integrated domestic terminal, expansion of border processing and the integration of extensive new transport & parking facilities.
The design is expected to be completed in early 2018.
