Corgan provided planning services to the Abu Dhabi Airport Company for interim improvements necessary to accommodate airline growth prior to the occupancy of the new Mid Field Terminal Complex. Additionally, Corgan planned for 30 ancillary facilities. Corgan developed an architectural project definition package which included an outline of specifications, floor plans, performance criteria, design narratives, cost estimates and schedules.
