Air transport recorded an aggressive growth in the last years both in the passenger transport segment and even more prominently, in the goods transport segment, and from this aspect it leaves all other modes of transport behind. Air transport has an exceptional impact on business, political, economic and tourist trends at the global level. Consequently, airports are a key element of economic success of the local community and the country and a lever of growth for investments, tourism and commerce. The European aviation sector is one of the most successful segments of the European economy and it is the leading industry in the world. Each year 900 million air passengers travel, from and within the European Union, making up a third of the world market.
Institut IGH was awarded a key role on the most important airport project in the region in the last couple of years – Design and design coordination for Franjo Tuđman International Airport in Zagreb, implemented from 2013 and successfully completed and opened to traffic in March of 2017. The implemented solution was selected as the best concept in terms of urban planning, space quality, flexibility, functionality, energy efficiency and structural solution. By employing a tried and responsible approach and efficient management of his tasks and external risks, IGH’s multidisciplinary team has accomplished clients’ goals in terms of quality and time schedule.
