The first concrete foundation for Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen International Airports new passenger terminal was cast by the Prime Minister of Turkey on 3 May 2008. Eighteen months later he returned to inaugurate this 200,000m2 terminal, which then became operational on 9 November 2009. The terminal is one of the worlds largest seismically isolated buildings. The project also includes a multistorey car park, an airport hotel, a VIP building, a passenger apron and an aviation fuel hydrant system. The presentation will address the implementation of the project and explain how the construction and operational readiness were completed in 18 months. The audience will gain an understanding of the challenges encountered in constructing and making operational this fast-track project, and how a newly formed consortium was able to overcome them. 13.00-14.00 LUNCH in the delegate dining area of the exhibition hall Part 3: The airport designers view we look at the design and development of new facilities in the region through the eyes of the architects and planners involved in the development of key facilities in the region for public and private operators of infrastructure. 14.00-14.25 Derek Moore, Associate, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, USA The new integrated passenger terminal at Mumbai The presentation describes the planning process for the new terminal, with emphasis on planning for international and domestic operations across a 24-hour operational day, and Indian security and immigration requirements for segregation of passengers. The planning integrates considerable swing capability into most functions after check-in: security screening, gate lounges, arrivals corridors, baggage reclaim and arrivals hall. The audience will learn how the utilisation of terminal facilities can be optimised by being planned and designed to serve domestic and international passengers alternately over the course of the day, while meeting strict security and immigration requirements for segregation. 14.25-14.50 Ty Osbaugh, Senior Terminal Architect, Gensler, USA An American (architect) in India The presentation will use our work in Chennai, India to show the thought process of planning and implementing terminals in growing markets. The presentation will highlight the fundamental differences in priority between traditional American terminal design versus the practices that are being employed in other parts of the world. The work in India represents a paradigm shift in the way terminals are planned and financed, thus having an impact on the business model of airport planning in the rest of the world. 14.50-15.15 Jian Xiang Guo, Vice General Manager, Shanghai Xian Dai Architect, China Green design practice of Shanghai Pudong International Airport Terminal 2 The construction of an airport hub represents the characteristic of intensive and high-efficiency. However, construction with large, bulky and complex functions accounts for more areas and consumes more energy. How to embody the elements of green technology, energy saving and sustainable development for airport hub construction? The architectural design for Shanghai Pudong International Airport Terminal 2 deeply probes green design practices for an airport hub from different angles of land-saving, water-saving, material-saving, energy-saving, and energy-consuming analysis of construction, etc. The presentation will explain the advanced technology adopted in the green design of this terminal, such as reasonable functional layout in the master plan, rain recycling, integrated design for saving materials, and the energy-saving systems in the architects HVAC and M&E design. 15.15-15.40 PANEL: The designers perspective Some of the largest architectural and planning firms in the world have been involved in the development of facilities at the major Asian airports.

long-term development strategies for airport and airlines alike. Some of todays speakers will tell us exactly how they have pulled off this tricky balancing act. Once all the design and development hurdles have been overcome, how can successful opening and implementation of the new facilities be achieved? Other speakers in this session will take us to the far end of the development timeline and share their thoughts and experiences of successful opening strategies. Their real-life case studies will prove that with careful planning it really is possible to create facilities that open successfully, with good press, delighted passengers, happy airlines and no surprises. 09.00-09.10 CHAIR: Michael Schwarz, Corporate Director Ground Operations / Postholder, Air Berlin PLC & Co Luftverkehrs KG, Germany CHAIR: Jeremy McGrath, Director, McGrath Aviation Projects, Australia studies where the development of Brussels Airport quickly responded to the fast-changing environment; the benefits of a proactive approach. 09.35-10.00 Leon Verhallen, Head of Aviation Marketing, The Brussels Airport Company, Belgium Aviation strategy: Brussels Airport back on track Brussels Airport passenger traffic collapsed after the former Sabena went out of business in 2001. After a few years of low growth, a new aviation strategy was developed and implemented. A focused approach on market segments proved successful and resulted in higher growth at Brussels Airport than the European average. The audience will learn how airports can have a direct role in traffic development, how airline segmentation assists traffic growth and product differentiation, and how a clear aviation strategy helps the internal organisation mindsetting.

10.25-10.55 Patrick Wenzel, Senior Executive Manager, Fraport AG, Germany Patrick Theis, Managing Director, Drees & Sommer, Germany 7 billion CAPEX programme at Fraport: chances for lean construction Fraport is currently dealing with the biggest investment and expansion programme in airport history. While a fourth runway and a third terminal can be considered complex greenfield projects, about one half of the capital expenditure is also used for remodelling of the existing facilities while keeping up daily airport operations. In addition to these technical and operational challenges, Fraport also succeeded in boosting its yearly construction volumes by a factor of five within a period of five years. Lean principles contributed to this leap in organisational and management efficiency. The presentation will be held by Fraport and Drees & Sommer, focusing on the measures Fraport has taken to manage the challenge, and examples of lean management implementation. The audience will gain insights into the Fraport expansion programme from a technical and organisational point of view, and how lean management can be used to stabilise the construction process for an in-time and on-budget completion of airport projects. They will learn about: the expansion programme itself; applied methods and tools to manage complexity; continuous improvement process in a project organisation; cost effectiveness and project stability; models for standalone project organisation, with clear role descriptions, responsibilities and decision competencies. 10.55-11.10 REFRESHMENT BREAK 11.10-11.35 Eng San Teoh, Project Manager, Changi Airport Group (Singapore) Pte Ltd, Singapore Seletar Aerospace Park project Currently Singapore Seletar Airport caters mainly to general aviation use. It is mainly used by flying schools for pilot training. This airport will be upgraded under the Seletar Aerospace Park project, which will involve the upgrading of dated airport facilities such as extending the runway, building new taxiways and parking aprons, upgrading existing parking aprons, relocating the existing fire station and control tower, and installing a new instrument landing system. The estimated cost for the project is S$300 million. The objective of the upgrading of Seletar Airport is to support the aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul business. The new facilities provided will improve the airports attractiveness to investors. The 244m Seletar Airport runway extension will allow large aircraft (up to B757) to take off and land with full fuel load without any payload. The current runway length of 1,592m will be extended to 1,836m when completed. With the expected increase in aircraft movements, more aircraft parking stands will be built accordingly. Ultimately the runway will also be equipped with instrument landing system in one direction of the runway. While the runway is being upgraded the airport will remain operational throughout. To facilitate work at the runway, the runway will be closed during its operational offpeak periods from 1830hrs to 0830hrs daily. Existing services and roads will be diverted to facilitate the runway extension. In order to extend the runway, about 300,000m3 of earth will be brought in to backfill various low-lying areas. The Seletar Aerospace Park development will take about five years to complete. This project will demonstrate that with proper and diligent planning, an airport can be upgraded without a need to fully close the airport. 11.35-12.00 Stephen Silverhart, General Manager Consulting Services, Greater Toronto Airports Authority, Canada ORAT Overnight transition. Not for the faint of heart? Operational readiness, overnight transition versus incremental opening. Many airport operators have relegated overnight transition programmes to the waste bin; is this necessary, desirable, and truly focused on customer service, or just an effort to overmanage risk and the media? The presentation will explain the benefits and drawbacks of incremental versus overnight transition following an ORAT programme.

12.00-12.25 Denis Leluc, VP International Operations, Aroports De Paris Management, France New facilities: opening shared experience Airports confronting traffic growth are constantly opening new facilities. Based on its experiences in Paris and abroad, the Aroports de Paris Group has developed a methodology to prepare the opening and make sure that nothing is forgotten. From Cambodia to Egypt, from Algeria to Mexico, the methodology emphasises the necessary coordination between the multiple stakeholders that are to be present prior to the d-day. From the first stone to the opening ceremony, from design to the first passenger, a challenge leading to success. The audience will benefit from the shared experience of what to do and what not to do, check lists and items that are not to be forgotten when opening a new terminal, airport or installation. We will go step by step through the different airport management fields from maintenance to commercial operation, sharing the problems of coordination and preparation to make sure that the opening is a success. The timeframe will be explained, killing the idea that opening preparation is the last thing that needs to be thought of when everything is done. You will learn that success is not random, and neither is failure! 12.25-12.50 Al Lyons, Principal, Arup, USA Airport cooperative research programme, airport terminal activation study: initial findings This presentation will review the initial findings of the National Academy of Sciences Airport Cooperative Research Program Airport Terminal Activation study. The goal of the study is to identify current practices used to open new airport terminal facilities, so that best practices can be identified. The objective of the study is to share these practices with the industry, to help make sure that the billions of dollars governments invest in airport facilities result in facilities that open successfully, ideally with good press, delighted passengers, happy airlines and no surprises opening day should be just like any other day. Participants will learn about the characteristics of successful and less than successful airport openings through a review of case studies of recent airport openings. These case studies explore how the activation teams were structured, how the openings were managed, how progress was reported, and how issues were resolved. This knowledge should enable participants make sure that the airport facilities projects they are involved with open successfully. 12.50-15.00 LUNCH in the delegate dining area of the exhibition hall
