The project was unusual in several respects : its size of course, but also its technical complexity and its very short completion time.

To meet this challenge, Airbus and the project management consortium set up a single integrated project team on site.

This organization made it possible to design, build and deliver all the works to end-users in just 3 years, from spring 2001 to spring 2004.
