Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport: Recorded Interview

The video above documents an interview with CH2MHill Program Manager Sikander Jain. The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport is the heart of modernization in India built with the intent ensure that the people of Mumbai would begin to experience a strengthened and heightened service even while the airport was being built. There were many constraints when building the airport. Asides from land constraints, there were air constraints  as they were building the airport while the Terminal 1 of the airport was still in operation. This required a lot of cooperation with air and land authorities and the government, much like the airport itself was a collaboration between SOM, L&T, CH2MHill, GVK, and MIAL all responsible for different aspects of the building.

Some numbers:

40 million passenger capacity annually

4.3 million square feet facility

4 levels

1300 meters of travellators

75 elevators and escalator

An elevated access roadway – 3 km

Car park for 5200 cars
