Case story

Kuala Lumpur International Airport

Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur

Plans for expansion of the second phase of Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) would create the largest purpose-built and dedicated terminal for low-cost carriers in the world. The new terminal building, located less than 2 km away from the main terminal building, is designed to accommodate up to 30 million passengers annually, and could be upgraded to serve 45 million passengers a year.

The airport expansion required the construction of an integrated complex that includes infrastructural works e.g. earthworks, road works, drainage works, etc. A challenge during the construction was preventing bank erosion from the drainage releases.

TenCate concrete mattresses were selected based on economics, ease of installation, and aesthetics. This technology provided a hard, durable and aesthetic surface finish.
