Motts to design ‘airport of the future’

Existing Auckland Airport

Mott MacDonald is to lead the consortium which will design an “airport of the future” at Auckland in New Zealand.

The Mott MacDonald-led consortium comprises architect Grimshaw, Australian based architect Architectus and local structural engineering consultant Holmes Consulting. It will produce the concept design for a combined domestic and international terminal.

Auckland Airport chief executive Adrian Littlewood said: “The selected consortium’s experience covers over 1,000 aviation projects in 120 countries across 260 airports. In addition to specialist experience and 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 for the new terminal over the next 10 years as well as a “significant” expansion of border processing and the integration of new transport and car parking facilities.

Mott MacDonald chairman Keith Howells said: “This is a tremendously exciting project that will further enhance Auckland Airport’s standing as a key hub in the Asia-Pacific region and the gateway to New Zealand.”

The consortium will begin work almost immediately, with the design expected to be complete in early 2018.
