Geneva, Switzerland (PressExposure) June 09, 2009 -- Three years ago, the GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd. initiated the development of an international airport, addressing the strong economic growth of Indiaâs Hyderabad region.
The scope of the project covered the construction of 72m high Air Traffic Control Tower and a 60m wide, 4.2 km long runway. In addition to this, a maze of aprons, taxi ways, approach roads, landscaping, drains and culvertsâ UG sumps, a storm water collection pond and compound wall had to be built.
With decades of experience in project work and dedicated expertise in project finance, SGS experts provided review and inspection services during construction to ensure the successful and timely completion of the project.
To make sure that all design parameters were strictly adhered to, the onsite SGS experts thoroughly verified design documentation. The Inspection Test Plans (ITP) and analysis of vendor Quality Assurance Provisions and Method Statements enabled the early detection of possible instruction errors and product defects, and saved the project owners precious time and money.
Through inspections of incoming materials and Field Quality Checks (http://www.projectfinance.sgs.com/environmental_certification_services_projectfinance), SGS professionals ensured that the different buildings housing crucial airport aviation technologies adhered to all relevant quality and safety standards.
The SGS team performed a long series of civil works inspections and field inspections of all electrical and mechanical components, plumbing, fire fighting equipment and high voltage cabling. Witnessing the various lab testing of materials used in construction and performing numerous Factory and Site Acceptance Tests, SGS was able to identify and avoid several material defects that might have had a negative impact on the Terminalâs safety and quality record.
The Rajiv Gandhi International Airport began commercial operation in March 2008 and soon entered the top 10 list of the worldâs fastest growing airports.
