This book describes how two islands and a vast area of sea were converted into a 1,248-hectare airport platform site in just two and a half years. The sensitivity of the local environment required that all environmental aspects of the work were completely planned and controlled. Written and edited by leading practitioners who played key roles in the successful completion of this huge project, this book is not merely a record of the works but highlights the many complex issues that the construction team faced, from design through to the completion of the next airport platform.
