US-based engineering firm Aecom has secured a contract to provide detailed design services for Hong Kong International Airport’s new passenger building.
The new building is part of the HKD141.5bn ($18.2bn) three-runway system (3RS) project.
The new passenger building will have a total floor area of 280,000 sq m. It will feature a landscaped courtyard at the centre of the building.
In the initial phase, the building will have 57 aircraft parking spaces and will be able to handle 30M passengers each year along with the modified Terminal 2.
The extensive use of natural light will allow the new passenger building to be a sustainable facility. Construction on the project is expected to be completed in 2024.
Sean Chiao, Aecom president for Asia Pacific said: “The airport is an important symbol of any city, and we are extremely pleased to continue making the Hong Kong International Airport the pride of Hong Kong.
“We look forward to leveraging our connected expertise to deliver designs for this major project as well as the airport’s Terminal 2 Expansion for which we were awarded consultancy work earlier.”
