Passenger Terminal Conference: State-of-the-art Campus Sets a New Standard in Airline Operational Excellence

Ghafari’s Global Director of Design, Joseph A. Gonzalez, FAIA, along with a representative from Turkish Airlines will be presenting at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Paris this June. Joe will share details about the design of the new state-of-the-art operational campus for Turkish Airlines (THY).

With the development of an all-new airport in Istanbul came the opportunity to plan and design an operational campus for the flagship airline comprised of over 50 next-generation support facilities. The campus will ultimately total over 650,000 SM (seven million SF) and set a new standard in airline operational excellence.

Ghafari’s design is not only highly functional but also imparts a unified visual identity that thoughtfully applies the airline’s revamped global brand. Attendees will learn how we incorporated innovative technology and sustainable materials to develop a cohesive design representative of THY’s ambitious growth, corporate rebranding efforts, and overall vision.

What the Audience Will Learn:

  • How to apply key skills to design complex, multi-building campus projects
  • Identify and define key elements that are crucial for successful global leadership: management, communication, local office presence, and construction management
  • How the use of technology was critical to building consensus among the disciplines involved in the implementation of the campus
  • Understand the methodology and approach behind our design in terms of branding, application of sustainable materials, and use of technology
