Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport
With a budget of $2.82 Billion USD, Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport was one of the world’s most expensive renovation projects to take place in 2004.
HyCOMB Panels played an integral role in the project, supplying interior and exterior cladding materials in the form of both stone honeycomb panels and aluminium honeycomb panels.
