On August 19, 2010 unveiled designs and details of the Terminal 1 (T1) expansion with enhanced capacity to cater to the rapidly growing passenger traffic in Bangalore.
The expansion of the existing T1 has been designed to enhance the operational performance in order to handle the increase of passenger traffic between now and 2015. The traffic is estimated to increase from the current 10.6 million passengers annually to approximately 17 million passengers. The expansion is scheduled to be completed in 18 months from the commencement of its construction at an estimated cost of Rs. 1000 crores.
The enhanced T1 will be spread over an area of approximately 1,34,000 square meters. Designed by HOK, along with several leading international architects, planners, urban designers, landscape architects & engineering consultants the expanded T1 sports an enhanced and modern design elevation. The architectural concept is based on the idea of a dramatic swooping and curving roof, under which the building sits. The roof is the unifying element for new and existing facilities, bringing both together as one composition. It also forms a dramatic canopy to the main entrance, offering passengers and public a giant covered area, protected from the weather. The undulating wave form provides the Terminal with greater physical presence.
