The New Parallel Runway (NPR) Project at Brisbane Airport is the largest aviation project in Australia under construction. The project includes reclamation of 360 hectares of marshland. 11 million cubic metres of sand will be used to raise and improve the ground conditions. This will create a solid base for the new 3.3km long runway system, 12km of runways, vehicle underpass, seawall and all other necessary airfield infrastructure.
Wolter Consulting Group partnered with Fugro to establish a permanent tidal boundary location for the airport land. Their excellent practices and advanced specialist skills to an arrange of spatial challenges, resulted in the two companies becoming finalists for the Award for Technical Excellence.
