Client: Wellington International Airport Ltd
The International Arrivals Enhancement project at Wellington International Airport had one primary driver: complete the work in time for Singapore Airlines’ maiden flight into the airport in September 2016. There was a lot to do: create wider and brighter corridors, remodel the passenger processing areas, increase the breakout areas, install new toilet facilities and construct a new (and relocate the old) customs control room – all while maintaining full airport operations.
Our role was to manage the full process, from confirming the project scope to establishing and monitoring the budget, managing contractor procurement and contracts, monitoring the programme and administering the construction contract.
With an extremely tight deadline, the design and construction phases were run in parallel and Impact employed a collaborative information-sharing tool to enable quick decision-making. The result: a successful and seamless touchdown for Wellington’s first long-haul connection.
