Case study - King Shaka International Airport, Turner & Townsend
Overseas project of the year: 2010
King Shaka International Airport (KSIA) opened on 1 May 2010 in advance of the start of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The development took just 32 months to build and boasts a state-of-the -art passenger terminal building that handles both international and domestic passengers. It can cater for 7.5 million passengers per annum and incorporates a multi-storey car park, a cargo terminal facility, a fuel farm and fuel infrastructure, control tower and offices, the 3,700 metre runway and airfield.
Stakeholders in Kwa Zulu Natal had submitted many applications for development of the airport before, but the 2010 football event acted as a catalyst for permissions being granted.
The South African lead consortium - IIembe - won the project and worked with global professional services organisation, Turner & Townsend, to develop the airport.
