Major airport construction projects: material considerations for reducing capex
  • Speaker Frédéric Remond - Associate Principal, McKinsey & Company
more

In recent years we have seen an unprecedented number of major airport projects with a number in the pipeline and just starting construction (e.g. Navi Mumbai, Heathrow, Amsterdam, LAX, Mexico). Airport construction projects however still have much to learn from other industries in terms of reducing and controlling capex and adherence to construction timelines.

In this session we will look at some lesson learned and examples from recent airport projects around the world where airports have successfully taken control of and therefore reduced project capex, decreased time to delivery and increased constructability by focusing on right-sizing and value engineering the design.
