Principle delivers signage solution for new international airport
Principle has a long history of delivering major projects in the Asia Pacific region, including a signage solution for the new Kuala Lumpur International Airport back in 1998.
The Malaysian government decided in 1990 to build a modern airport in Sepang that would be capable of handling growing demand for air travel to Kuala Lumpur, and pressed for the new site to be fully operational in time for the Commonwealth Games in September 1998.
London-based architectural consultancy BDG McColl, which has an office in Malaysia, was appointed to design the public areas of the terminal building, including signage, finishes and furniture.
BDG McColl chose Principle to supply and install the signage, due to our track record of delivering work on high-profile infrastructure developments around the world on time and within budget.
The scope of the project covered internal signage and wayfinding for both the airside and landside areas of the new terminal, with all the signs to be produced in more than one language.
Principle sent one of its experienced project managers to Sepang to oversee the work and ensure it was completed on time, ahead of the airport’s opening date in June 1998.
Kuala Lumpur International Airport has proved to be a major success and now handles more than 25 million passengers a year, making it the 14th busiest airport in the world.
