Auckland Airport selects Mott MacDonald-led consortium to construct terminal

Auckland Airport in New Zealand has appointed a specialist consortium, led by engineering consultancy Mott MacDonald, to complete the design project for its newly proposed terminal.

As well as Mott MacDonald, the consortium comprises architectural practice Grimshaw, local architecture firm Architectus, and New Zealand-based engineering firm Holmes Consulting.

The project is centered on the construction of a combined domestic and international terminal at Auckland Airport, as well as ancillary building works over the next 10 years. This includes the expansion of border processing and the integration of extensive new transport and car parking facilities. The consortium will begin work almost immediately, with the design expected to be complete in early 2018.

Adrian Littlewood, chief executive, Auckland Airport, 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.”

Keith Howell, chairman of Mott MacDonald, 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.

“To deliver this, we will draw on our experience at other strategically important airports such as London Heathrow, Hong Kong and Singapore, and have brought together a multi-talented consortium that has worked together before on other landmark schemes.”
