Inspired by the dancing peacock, India’s national bird, the picturesque Terminal 2 of Mumbai’s Chhatrapathi Shivaji International Airport that caters to 40 million passengers and a million tonnes of cargo per annum was recognized as The World’s Best Airport by the Airports Council International in 2017. A brownfield complex that had to be built in the middle of a fully functioning airport features a new passenger terminal of close to 4.5 lakh sq. ft. Our scope also involved reconstruction and widening of 6.5 km of runways; 3 parallel taxiways, 10 million sq. ft of hard stands, taxiways, aprons for wide-bodied aircraft and associated support buildings, systems and utilities. A 6-lane, 3.3 km elevated corridor connects the airport to the Western Express Highway and the 83.8 m tall ATC tower also incorporates the peacock in its architecture.
Latest technologies like rubblization, high-rise jaw crushers, hot tapping, carbon reinforced fibre technology were used with 15,000 workmen; 200+ contractors, 4,000 employees + 25 engineers & architects involved. The globally benchmarked project planning involved more than 200 specialized national & international agencies.
