Christchurch International Airport Limited

Relationship since 1995

As the second largest international airport in New Zealand, Christchurch International Airport Limited (CIAL) plays a significant role in facilitating air-freight and passenger transport movements in and out of the South Island.  Its role as a major tourism gateway and contributor to the South Island tourism economy is widely acknowledged. With over 6 million passengers travelling through the airport each year, CIAL plays a significant role in the New Zealand and global transport network.

Our relationship with CIAL started when the airport company identified the need to re-develop its International Terminal in 1995.  Our involvement initially was project management of the design for the new terminal followed by the procurement, planning and construction for the redevelopment.  The requirements to enable the continued functionality of the airport throughout the development was critical, and necessitated detailed decanting/relocation planning as well as complex health, safety and security provisions to ensure the continued safe operation of the airport.

With the completion of the new International Terminal the airport company initiated planning for further terminal development.  We assisted CIAL to undertake long term planning for the terminal area and the airfield and airspace demands. The outputs from this planning phase set the airport up to undertake the next phase of major development, the Integrated Terminal Project, with confidence this solution would be developed with longer term growth opportunities and constraints taken into consideration.

Integrated Terminal Project

The Integrated Terminal Project has developed as a project over a number of years. As airline and facility business demands have changed, so has the design of the buildings. Team members of The Project Office have had various roles within the project including strategic planning, stakeholder management, design management, construction management and tenancy coordination.  The project is in the construction phase and is due for completion at the end of 2012.

International Airside Retail Expansion Project

Our team was engaged early to  prepare a robust coordinated and costed concept design which received Board approval to proceed.  The project was commenced at the end of 2008 and was completed at the end of 2010. The Project Office team provided project leadership, design and stakeholder management throughout the early phases of the project. During construction we provided contract management and tenancy coordination while continuing to provide project leadership and client representation.
