A TACTICAL,
PRACTICAL APPROACH
TO SUSTAINABILITY

Here at NACO, we are committed to advancing sustainable solutions for airport operators.

 

Sustainability requires an integrated and collaborative approach, two factors that are embedded in the way we work. We are used to dealing with multiple stakeholders on airport projects, and everyone at NACO takes a sustainable approach to their work, no matter what the task.

 

Our experts look at the individual aspects of airport developments in order to identify solutions to improve sustainability. For example, when planning the location of the terminal building in relation to the runway, one sustainable decision would be to minimise the taxiing distance that any aircraft has to travel. We’ve seen this one single solution reduce overall fuel consumption by up to 40%.

 

And we’re not just talking reducing emissions and wider environmental impact – we’re focused on ensuring that your airport will continue to function for decades to come.

From 2009-2011, NACO sat on the working group to help define the Airport Operators Sector Supplement (AOSS) which forms part of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines for airports. This framework has provided guidance for airports to follow in terms of reporting and monitoring their progress with regard to sustainability, year-on-year, and is vital to future-proofing their operations.

 

The approach we take with our clients is collaborative, explicit in terms of project requirements and transparent in the choices we make in the design process. Even more importantly, it is ultimately founded on common sense. By paying close attention to the individual client context and asking the questions that matter, our approach ensures that we develop the best information and solutions for our clients.

Airport Master Planning

Airport Master Planning
We understand the necessity of a long-term development plan to guide the future of your airport. Air travel is vital to the global economy and planning for growth is essential to ensure that airports can adapt appropriately in the years to come.


Given the dynamic conditions of the industry, it’s important to incorporate flexibility into your airport’s Master Plan. Our unique, integrative approach results in efficient, feasible and realistic solutions to address your individual requirements.
Airport Building Design

At NACO, airports are what we do. We’ve designed everything from small regional airports to major international hubs and understand the requirements of your key stakeholders.


We have an extensive track record in providing basic design for all airport facilities, from passenger terminal buildings to the design of ground transportation centres and are experts at identifying potential capacity issues as well as ironing out logistics flows both airside and landside. By focusing specifically on your needs, our team can ensure that our expertise is directed towards solutions that work.
Airport Civil Engineering

All of our engineers understand airport infrastructure inside out. As such, we have broad experience of working with multiple stakeholders to determine the best potential solution for any project.

The key to successful airport engineering is developing close links with all aspects of the airport infrastructure. In addition to advising on master planning and building services, we also couple on the geotechnical engineering and drainage consulting services of Royal HaskoningDHV.
