Aéroports de Paris Ingénierie (ADPI) has been selected to take part in the renovation of Guarulhos International Airport public areas while they remain in operation.
The company will work alongside a joint venture formed by French design firm Saguez & Partners and Brazilian design firm Rocha.
Guillaume Sauvé, Chairman and CEO of ADPI, commented: “The optimisation project is completely suited to ADPI’s mission of creating value for its clients by drawing on its expertise in airport processes and its experience in airport terminal renovations. This contract is a milestone for our growth in Brazil, where we hope to do even more business.”
The contract comprises improving the image and functional capabilities of the public areas in Guarulhos’ two existing terminals, covering 2,152,782sq ft (200,000m2). ADPI will conduct a six-month study with three main objectives: optimisation of airport capacity and functional capabilities; enhancement of passenger comfort and experience; and boost in airport revenues.
The solutions it offers must respect the established deadlines and must not interrupt airport operations.
The company has also indicated interest in participating in the future redevelopment of other airport facilities, as part of Brazil’s preparations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games.
