King Khaled International Airport

BuroHappold is working alongside HOK architects and SADECO (the Saudi branch of NACO) to realise this ambitious development project for King Khaled International Airport which will see the amalgamation of Terminals 3 and 4 into one mega terminal designed to support up to 25 million passengers per annum by 2015. This is an 80% increase on the existing capacity of 15 million, in line with the forecasted economic growth for Riyadh of over 5% per year.

With  over 15 years’ experience of working on aviation projects in Saudi Arabia, BuroHappold  brings the engineering knowledge necessary to realise the architect’s vision across all aspects of this bold design, from building services strategy and the redevelopment and enhancement of airport services, to improving the energy efficiency of the terminals by incorporating the benefits provided by the surrounding natural environment.

The consultancy has  worked in partnership with NACO and HOK before to transform Heathrow’s terminals into modern, world class aviation facilities, as well as creating the iconic air traffic control tower at Indira Ghandi International Airport, Delhi, one of the tallest of its kind in the world.
