The year 2006 witnessed a momentous change for the airports in India with the privatization of Mumbai’s GVK Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (GVK CSIA). In order to achieve a global standard, GVK CSIA has partnered with well-known international experts for airport design and operations. However there was a need to improve the Facility Management Service. Terminal 2, referred to as T2, will be state-of-art 4 level integrated terminal. It will be unique as our land, our heritage. The distinctly proud Indian design of this new terminal will set new international standards, across every aspect such as architecture, planning, technology, functionality and service.
SILA has been offered to work on a unique and prestigious Facility Management project at Terminal 2 of the Mumbai International Airport since 25th November 2013. SILA is currently providing the cleaning and maintenance services on a 3-Km long wall, called ‘Jaya He’. The wall displays different kinds of artwork such as ancient sculptures, statues, huge wind chimes, maps made of e-waste and glass, wood & stone artifacts. SILA has deployed a dedicated team of housekeeping janitors overlooked by Observers (Supervisors) & Project Head.
In order to preserve the highly antique artworks, SILA has specially partnered with a German Company. SILA has made sure that the team deployed has knowledge and experience of Museology & Conservation of Art. We have been working in sync with conservationist and various artists which have their art displayed at the Airport, to prepare a SOP’s for cleaning and maintaining of artwork. With Facility Management being it’s forte, SILA continues to perform for the Mumbai International Airport.
