Construction & Design
With the demand for air travel rising, projects that are investing in infrastructure and expanding existing facilities are frequenting the airport industry. These construction and design projects involve a wide range of stakeholders, and vary both in size and cost.
The role of an airport is to facilitate a journey to a desired destination, however, many airports are endeavouring to become destinations in themselves. To achieve this demands new designs and innovative features which can provide a ‘wow factor’ for passengers, allowing airports to not only cope with growth, but excel.
Already we have seen inspiring applications of innovative design within the industry. In this section of International Airport Review’s website, we will showcase examples of creative construction and design, and keep you up to date with project progress around the world.
