Adaptive mould to be used for the new Kuwait International Airport
Adapa has been selected to take part in the construction for this gigantic airport building. We will be in charge of delivering Adaptive Moulds to the project and consult on critical moulding elements. We look forward to participating in this great project with our first delivery in December 2016.
Kuwait International Airport is planned to significantly increase capacity and establish a new regional air hub in the Gulf – these strategic aims will be matched by a state-of-the-art terminal building, which will provide the highest levels of comfort for passengers and will set a new environmental benchmark for airport buildings. Its design is rooted in a sense of place, responsive to the climate of one of the hottest inhabited environments on earth and inspired by local forms and materials.
