In the last decade, Andrew has played a leading role in the development of Grimshaw’s aviation work from his base in the London office. He was central to the development of Grimshaw’s competition-winning design for Pulkovo Airport in St. Petersburg, and he led successful competition teams on major projects at Frankfurt Airport and the new Moscow Business Airport.

Andrew recently led the Grimshaw team in designing the Istanbul New Airport project, a new six-runway development on the shores of the Black Sea, 35km from the centre of Istanbul, Turkey. The project seeks to provide a generous and modern airport that is inspired by the history and culture of Istanbul. Once opened, it will be the largest single airport terminal building in the world.
