A new garden terminal at Bengaluru

The L&T-built Phase 1 of Terminal 2, Kempegowda International Airport was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India on 11th November 2022. Pivoted on the concept of a ‘terminal in a garden’, the architecture integrates several natural elements such as clay, bricks, bamboo, rattan, and extensive landscape, with sustainability principles woven into the design along with 100% usage of renewable energy. T2 features gardens in various constructs - hanging garden, calming garden, sunken garden, an artificial forest belt, rattan furniture and an expansive engineered bamboo ceiling and column wrappings, for which about 1,000 kilometers of engineered bamboo have been incorporated into the building interior.

Designed to serve up to 25 million passengers per annum, T2 is spread over 112 acres with a total built area of 2.86 million Sq feet and features 15 bus gates, 61 Check-in counters, 34 Self baggage drop counters, 36 departure immigration desks, 40 arrival immigration desks, 9 Baggage claim conveyors, 23 passenger boarding bridges and 11 Fixed link bridges. It certainly is a green landmark of the future!
