One of the prime infrastructural projects in New Delhi, the new TERMINAL 3 (T3) at the INDIRA GANDHI INTERNATIONAL (IGI) AIRPORT is designed with many unique landscape features. Odyssey was awarded the Hardscape and Water Features work for this iconic project.
The Scope of Work under Hardscape included 858 Movable Planter Boxes, 750 RMT of Fixed Planters in Steel Grey Granite, a Landscape Deck and Planter Benches. The Movable Planter Boxes are completely self-sufficient and drip-free, equipped with a HDPE tray, Pond Liner and a slotted Galvanized Mild Steel (GMS) Framework. The GMS framework was clad with Steel Grey Granite, Sapphire Brown Granite and Tan Brown Granite. The slotted framework enabled flexibility with the height of the plants and planters placed inside the boxes by moving the HDPE trays up or down. The Pond Liner ensured that the water and mud does not drip out onto the floor. Each planter box weighs between 120 and 450 KGs and can be moved easily with the help of a forklift.
