Kangaroo Island Airport Upgrade
Located off the coast of South Australia, Kangaroo Island is renowned for its wilderness and ecotourism experiences. The Airport is one of only two major points of access to the island and is crucial to tourism and economic growth. The upgrade provides visitors and locals with a new retail area, lounges, improved security and improved baggage handling facilities.
Cundall developed sustainability guidelines, performance reporting and energy, thermal and water efficiency benchmarking requirements for the project. Our team was responsible for driving sustainable outcomes across all design and delivery disciplines. Sustainability initiatives include on-site solar PV, operable façades to enable the building to make maximum use of natural light and ventilation and a focus on locally sourced sustainable materials.
Binaya Karki, Associate Director, commented, "Renowned for its national parks, wildlife, pristine beaches and local produce, Kangaroo Island is a fantastic destination in SA. We’re very proud to have been able to contribute to a sustainable airport terminal design that will ensure continued success of tourism and operations on the island."
A sustainable airport means visitors begin the ecotourism experience the moment arrive at Kangaroo Island.
