Brintons has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Changi Airport Group for more than 20 years and when the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) announced in 2008 that it would upgrade Changi T1 at an estimated cost of $500 million, Brintons’ reputation for handling and delivering complex, large-scale projects on time and within budget meant it was commissioned to supply the 54,000 sq metres of carpet that were required for the renovation project.
Woodhead – a company that Brintons has previously worked with to develop over 200,000 sq metres of impressive Axminster carpet across Changi’s T1 and T3 terminal buildings – was once again commissioned to lead the architectural master planning and interior design.
When the four-year upgrade is completed in 2011, the 280,000 sq metre terminal building will service approximately 21 million passengers and provide the ‘fully integrated, seamless and comfortable experience’ that passengers will expect from one of the world’s leading international airports.
Working with Brintons on the CT1 project was very rewarding. Over the course of two years we developed numerous options. Brintons was able to explore design variations and worked extremely well in capturing the design intent of ‘tropical city’. The end result is a carpet that everyone is extremely happy with.
