Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, Thailand

The new Bangkok International Airport in Thailand has been named Suvarnabhumi Airport, meaning the “Golden Land”, by His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Designed by Helmut Jahn, a well-known German-American architect, it is Southeast Asia’s largest airport, covering an area of approximately 3,520 hectares, and boasts the world’s highest air traffic control tower (132.2 m).

The architecture uses a combination of glass facades, reflecting natural light, and metal trusses, which together give the airport, particularly the concourses, an impressive visual aspect.

High-tech engineering has been incorporated to reduce energy consumption and environmental impact.

Suvarnabhumi Airport was built using Portland cement provided by Asia Cement and Jalaprathan Cement.
