As part of the HK$141.5 billion strategy to expand Hong Kong International Airport’s (HKIA) existing two-runway system into a Three-runway System, we’re delivering two transformational projects that will allow the airport to meet future air traffic demand and provide world-class passenger experience.
Terminal 2 Expansion
As lead consultant and Project Manager, we are providing a range of services, including planning strategy, architectural design and engineering for HKIA’s Terminal 2 (T2) Expansion. We are upgrading T2 to provide arrivals, departures and complete passenger services.
Doubling the size of the existing building and increasing its passenger handling capacity to 50 million passengers per annum ultimately, the enhanced terminal will include outstanding architectural design to facilitate a simple and efficient flow of passengers and baggage. New features include a meet-and-greet area and baggage reclaim hall, expanded security and immigration facilities, and additional check-in counters. A new Automated People Mover Interchange Station (AIS) will connect T2 with the airport’s other concourses and transportation hubs.
We have planned the phased construction to minimise disruption to the airport’s current and future operations. The design minimises land use, while meeting all of Airport Authority Hong Kong’s functional, operational, and maintenance requirements.
The design includes maximum flexibility for future changes in space utilization, functional requirements and further expansion.
Third Runway Concourse
As part of the Third-runway System project, we are also lead consultant and Project Manager for the detailed design and construction phase design services for the new Third Runway Concourse – delivering an innovative design and a great passenger experience, with latest technology and sustainable credentials.
The Y-shaped concourse will initially have a floor area of approximately 280,000m², with extensive building services and airport systems, and high-quality finishes. Alongside our project partners, we are researching and conducting benchmarking studies to identify future trends in technology and airport systems, retail and advertising, to ensure an innovative, exciting and enjoyable passenger experiences.
Sustainability is a key focus, with passive and smart engineering to reduce energy consumption. A central landscaped courtyard will offer a tranquil setting for relaxation and enjoyment for passengers waiting in the departures concourse.
Construction is expected to be completed in 2024.
