Auckland selects terminal consortium.

A new, combined domestic and international terminal at Auckland--a milestone in the construction of 'an airport of the future'--has moved a step closer with the appointment of a consortium comprising Mott MacDonald, Grimshaw Architects, Architectus and Holmes Consulting to lead the conceptual design work. The project, covering building work over the next ten years, includes the new integrated domestic terminal, expansion of border processing facilities and development of additional transport and car parking areas. Adrian Littlewood, Auckland Airport Chief Executive, 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, [its] 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." Auckland, the country's primary international gateway, has achieved record passenger numbers which has put pressure on its facilities. Work will begin work almost immediately.
