Our client is planning a 120,000 sq m five-star hotel, retail and office development immediately adjacent to India's busiest aviation hub – the recently re-named Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (formerly Sahar International Airport).
Current designs include two towers, one for the hotel and the other to accommodate offices. Quality retail outlets will occupy the entire ground level while a double basement provides space for car parking and plant. The commercial wing of the development is designed with longer spans and greater floor-to-floor heights than for hotel structure. Throughout, the standard of finish will be extremely high.
Flexibility has been an important driver at concept design stage, as is the need for a building that can be constructed on a fast track programme. We are supporting the client’s decisions with a full range of structural options.
