Aviation Projects is the leading consultant in airport planning and concept design.
With flying in our blood, we use design thinking to evaluate aviation problems from the ground up and apply our detailed expertise to deliver safe, secure, efficient and sustainable outcomes for our clients.
We look at how airports can address limitations – for example runway width and length, or terminal capacity - to provide greater efficiency, increased aircraft size, more frequent flights or higher usage.
