Our Kasian Senior Associate, Martin Nogger attended the Passenger Terminal Expo in Stockholm with the YVR Airport team from March 18 – 22. This conference addressed airport and airline business-critical issues and solutions, providing innovative ideas and progressive thinking for future development, and proven measures for maintaining passenger custom and satisfaction – all key to the industry’s future success. During the Skytrax World Airport Awards at the Expo, the team was delighted to receive the news that YVR Airport has been voted the Best Airport in North America for a ninth straight year! Craig Richmond, YVR’s President and CEO personally received the award (pictured below) and published a heartfelt thank you letter to the community in response.

Kasian is humbly grateful for all the experience working in partnership with the YVR Airport Authority (YVRAA) as trusted design consulting partners for over 20 years and having worked on numerous architectural and engineering projects at YVR. From the complete transformation of the 1968 Domestic Terminal; to the new front door to the airport – the ‘Graham Clarke Atrium’ – linking the Domestic and International Terminals and the airport to Vancouver via the striking Canada Line Station; and the Expedited Transfer Facility project, where we helped thread 600m of sterile corridor and 9km of new baggage conveyor through the fully operational airport – we worked continuously from virtually end to end!

Martin Nogger, our Senior YVR Project Manager and Senior Associate who leads Kasian’s airport team, was thrilled to have been a part of the celebration and to experience the incredible opportunity abroad with the team. He was able to learn about the latest strategies and designs deployed at major airports around the globe in countless presentations during the conference.

“We are proud of our long-term relationship with YVRAA and our ever-growing body of work currently underway at the airport, including the high-profile Pier D Terminal Expansion as well as the baggage operations necessary to support the phenomenal growth YVR is experiencing.” – Michael McDonald, Executive Vice President.

BIG congratulations to YVRAA for their continued success and growth. We are excited for the new transformations on the horizon, helping YVR to soar higher and farther.
