Award-winning airport renovation relies on Indian granite
Formerly known as Sahar International Airport, Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) is the airport of Mumbai (Bombay) in India. As part of a long-range plan to expand and upgrade the airport facilities within India, CSIA has undergone a number of renovations over the past few years. Among them, CSIA’s Terminal 1A underwent a transformation that features domestic granite from Pokarna Limited of Secunderabad, India.
“As part of the Indian government’s initiative of modernizing and restructuring airport infrastructure, the architect was commissioned to give a long overdue facelift and space addition to the Delhi and Mumbai airport terminals,” stated Hafeez Contractor. “Between them, Delhi and Mumbai account for a large quantum of the local air traffic, but the facilities were rundown and undersized.”
Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport has won numerous awards, including “Best Airport in India” and “Best Airport in Public-Private Partnership.”
