Key services


Our masterplanning work embraces small and large airport, new greenfield developments and capacity expansion at highly constrained existing facilities.

At Delhi International Airport we produced a master plan for the phased development of the airport up to 2036 and an ultimate capacity of 100M passengers per annum. We delivered this masterplan to the client in just six months, enabling the client to deliver one of the world’s largest new build airport projects in only 50 months.

At Heathrow Airport we led the master planning process defining the long-term development and surface access strategy for a 2 runway Airport. The project included the development of the airfield, terminal, road, rail, passenger and baggage connectivity strategies. We provided the client with a durable and flexible solutions to support their growth within the 480,000 ATM cap at the airport.
