Indira Gandhi International Airport

Following a lengthy competition to provide masterplanning schemes for the planned privatisation of airports at Delhi and Mumbai, successful bidder the GMR Group, an Indian infrastructure development firm, has confirmed appointment of the consortium led by HOK and Mott MacDonald to take forward its plans for the upgrade and expansion of Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport.

HOK provided GMR with schemes for airports at Delhi and Mumbai for the Group’s concurrent bids on both projects (with the ultimate opportunity of being awarded one of the projects ); both of these design schemes scored the highest in technical ratings against several world-renowned bidders.

Built in just 37 months to coincide with New Delhi’s hosting of the Commonwealth Games in October, the design of a new 250,000 sqm terminal will provide India and its rapidly growing economy with a vital modern gateway. This new addition will increase the airport’s capacity from current levels of 16 million mppa to 36 mppa. Also included in the brief is the refurbishment and extension of existing international and domestic terminals. Phase 1 of the project, which targets completion of the new terminal, is set for 2010 to coincide with India’s hosting of the Commonwealth Games.

HOK London provided architecture and programming services for its immediate client, while project manager Mott MacDonald supplied providing civil engineering. Also part of the team is the London/Delhi-based engineering firm of Pell Frischmann/Frischmann Prabhu.

The state-of-the-art hub, which cost nearly $US3 billion ($A3.5 billion) and can handle 34 million passengers a year, was showcased at a special ceremony by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, ahead the official opening of that took place on the 4th of July 2010, and was attended by Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel and ruling Congress party president Sonia Gandhi.
