Airport calls for new terminal design

Airport calls for new terminal design

Auckland Airport has announced the next step in the development of its new integrated terminal building.

Graham Matthews, Auckland Airport’s general manager of airport development and delivery, says, “Our new integrated terminal is at the very heart of our 30-year vision to create the ‘airport of the future’, and will need to be able to accommodate up to 40 million domestic and international passengers.”

“We have begun an international search for detailed engineering and architectural design, and for cost management services, to enable us to commence the design process.”

“We need to assemble the very best design team we can find to implement the vision that Auckland Airport has for this major infrastructure project. We plan to be able to appoint the successful team by mid-April.”

“We would like to see New Zealand firms teamed-up with international partners to respond to our search, and we encourage them to do so,” says Mr Matthews.

“The design of our new integrated terminal is critical to making journeys better. We need to ensure that both our arriving and departing passengers have a quality experience at Auckland Airport. That includes everything from check-in and border processing to shopping, relaxing or working. We must also develop a flexible design that can accommodate changing aircraft types into the future.”

“Auckland Airport’s new integrated terminal will be built in stages to ensure it can accommodate growing passenger demand. The integrated terminal will serve the airport’s existing southern runway and a new northern runway, which is expected to become operational around 2025,” says Mr Matthews.
