Making the world smaller and more accessible.
Airports are the gateway to the fastest mode of commercial transport, helping to carry people and packages to almost anywhere in the world and fueling trillions of dollars in economic activity annually. With traffic growth forecast to outstrip airport capacity, maintaining a regional and global competitive advantage with modern airside and landside facilities is a must.
Supporting your growth without letting a passenger or shipment miss a beat is what we do best. Our top-flight, top-ranked (according to Engineering News-Record) aviation team has nearly seven decades of experience at commercial service, general aviation and military and aerospace facilities, delivering airport planning, architecture, engineering, program and construction management, consulting and specialty services worldwide.
We’ve held contracts on more than 500 airport projects, including the majority of the busiest airports in the U.S., 2 of the top 3 busiest airports in the U.K., 3 of the largest airports in India, most of the fastest growing airports in the Middle East and the largest greenfield airport development project in Latin America.
We can help you navigate the challenges that come with upgrading aging infrastructure, expanding capacity and improving public transport connectivity—all through the lens of sustainable airport development.
