Scope and content:
This project series documents long-term planning for airports in Trinidad and Tobago from 1979-1993. The office identified the project number as 7911.

This project consisted of the planning of two airports, one in Piarco and the other in Crown Point, financed by the Government of Canada acting as agents for the Government of Trinidad and Tobago. This work was undertaken as a consortium with other Canadian firms who worked together on airport planning projects around the world. The firms consisted of Parkin Architects Planners as the architects, the Montreal Engineering Company Limited, Peat, Marwick and Partners, and IBI Group. At Crown Point, a new 3,300 square metre terminal building was proposed for domestic and some international traffic, as well as a new control tower. The passenger terminal could accommodate 350 enplaning and 350 deplaning passengers. This first phase was said to accommodate growth until 1993. At Piarco, a new 26,000 square foot passenger terminal was proposed, which was said to accommodate about 2/3 of traffic in 1993. This location also proposed a 200 room hotel be built in the future.
This project is recorded through textual records dating from 1977-1981 which consist of correspondence between consortium members, billings, the joint venture agreement and financial analysis report.
