3DReid flies into Brazil

  • Comment

AJ100 big hitter 3DReid has unveiled its proposals for a new private airport in Brazil

The scheme will sit on 7 million m² of land reclaimed from a now closed paper mill on a hillside site in the city of São Roque about 38 miles from central São Paulo. More than 16 million cubic metres of earth will have to be moved to create the land for the two runways and surrounding apron.

The first phase of the international business aviation airport looks set to open ahead of the Football World Cup which is being held in the country in June 2014.

Working for Novo Aeroporto Executive, a joint venture between CFly Aviation and Brazilian developer  JSHF, the practice has designed the VIP terminal, the air traffic control tower, the fire safety facilities and the VVIP buildings.

Last month the Brazilian government unveiled a £42billion infrastructure investment which was hailed as a major boost for architects hoping to work in the country (AJ 30.08.2012).

The majority of the stimulus will be concessions to build roads and railways, with finance being provided by Brazil’s state development bank.
