Cities and airlines are constantly competing with each other to provide better Airport services to help their economies and businesses grow. Airport upgrades offer unique challenges, requiring the execution of projects alongside live operations, often with the added security and logistical challenges or working in an airside environment. The number of stakeholders is vast: the paying public, the airline operators, border control and airport operations. All require timely and accurate performance and forecast information from projects to coordinate with operations and to secure funding.
In the LogiKal 2019 Project Controls Survey Report we explored the link between industry and project success. Aviation/Airports is a new entry at Number 1!
What tools and techniques are helping to deliver successful projects?
LogiKal has over 15 years’ experience in delivering air side projects across three continents. Having established Project Management Offices (PMO’s) for some of the world’s largest and busiest airports, LogiKal understand the unique challenges associated with working within this highly regulated environment. Planning and effectively communicating the logistical challenges associated with airports is critical to ensuring successful project delivery outcomes.
LogiKal has held key delivery roles on all of the United Kingdom’s airport upgrade projects for over 15 years. We have used the knowledge and wisdom gained from these economy changing projects to upskill client delivery teams in Europe, Asia and Australia. From mega projects such as Hong Kong’s third runway project to key infrastructure upgrade works at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, LogiKal has transferred our experience for the benefit of the wider delivery teams. LogiKal also has considerable experience in the establishment of airport rail infrastructure such as Heathrow’s T5 Piccadilly line extension and Perth’s new Airport Link. By establishing or holding key roles within the delivery Project Management Office’s (PMO’s) of these major cities changing investments LogiKal have been able to mitigate the delivery risks associated with these mega projects.
