Project story

By the start of the 21st century India’s most populous city and commercial capital had developed into one of the world’s major financial hubs, attracting people from across the world, but it needed an international airport that supported its ambitions.

Mumbai’s International Airport Ltd undertook a major programme to expand the city’s airport and bring it up to the highest international standards.

At the heart of these plans was the construction of a new Terminal 2, built to replace the existing terminal, which now caters for more than 40 million passengers a year – more than four times the capacity of its predecessor.

We were appointed to supervise the construction and manage the quality of the new terminal’s spectacular interior, and provided assistance in managing the design, procuring and overseeing multiple trade packages, and benchmarking standards for quality and health and safety.

Our extensive experience in developing airports, understanding of passengers’ needs and knowledge of the city meant we were able to help create a world-class terminal with minimal disruption that supports Mumbai's growth and reflects its transformation.

points of note

A world-class airport

As well as related infrastructure such as approach roads and a multi-level car park, the terminal contains 21,000 sq m of retail space, travel services, a hotel, luxurious passenger lounges and over 5,000 sq m of landscaping. 

A safe site

While not contracted to oversee health and safety practices, we shared our global expertise with the client and its suppliers. Our team assisted to devise and help implement strategies and systems to maintain the highest standards of safety on site.

Challenging logistics

There were significant space restrictions, so we assisted to devise a management plan for site traffic to make sure timely deliveries of materials which were coming from five continents . Our ‘just in time’ delivery plan meant we also avoided needing to store huge amounts of materials on site.

Ensuring quality

Our specialist senior managers used their extensive international experience in airports and high-end interiors to help the integrated team implement best-in-class quality management procedures with key suppliers. We made use of our extensive international supply chain network to assist in procurement of specialised packages and set quality standards through extensive benchmarking and quality assurance mechanisms – reinforced by rigorously training the trade contractors.
