Design team

The NACO design team from The Hague, collaborated with the Foster + Partner team in London to prepare an innovative and symbolic solution for Mexico City's challenging environment. This Greenfield airport is designed to be one of the world’s largest and most sustainable. At 555,000 square metres the design and engineering team has created an energy efficient and continuous flowing single roof structure capable of handling approximately 120 million annual passengers.

Previously a member of the successful team for Terminal 3 at Beijing Capital International Airport in China and currently together in Kuwait, NACO is thrilled to be collaborating again with Foster + Partners in Mexico City and for the first time with local architect FR-EE.

Kjell Kloosterziel, Director Airport Planning & Building Design at NACO and project director for the project said: "We look forward to working on this amazing project; it will set an example for the next generation of sustainable airport passenger terminal buildings. We see this as an important step in extending our successful working relationship with Foster + Partners and to growing our portfolio in the Americas."
