Kolkata airport bags Vishwakarma Award

March 18, 2014

The Construction Industry Development Council (CIDC), established by the Planning Commission, has awarded CIDC Vishwakarma Awards 2014 to the Airports Authority of India for the new integrated passenger terminal building at Kolkata airport under the category 'Best Construction Project-2014'.

The award was presented to Kolkata airport director BP Sharma in Delhi by the CIDC chairman in the presence of the members of the board of governors of CIDC and other guests from the constructions industry and PSUs.

The Planning Commission, jointly with the Indian construction industry, set up CIDC to take up and promote activities for the development of the Indian construction industry.

"It is a matter of great satisfaction for Airports Authority of India and people of Kolkata that the new terminal at the airport has received yet another award," said Sharma.

For the new integrated terminal at Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport, awards, both international and national, have been flowing in since its inauguration last year. The airport received the prestigious international award, the Best Improvement Airport Award in Asia Pacific Region for 2013, from Airports Council International (ACI), .

Last year, the new terminal building was awarded the Excellence in Built Environment 2013 award by the Indian Building Congress. Earlier last year, it bagged the second highest jury award after being adjudged an engineering marvel at the prestigious competition organised by Engineering Watch, a professional publication dedicated to the Indian engineering community. The airport was also declared the second-most impactful engineering marvel.
