Changi Airport Group (CAG) has appointed master building consultants and master civil consultants for Changi Airport’s Terminal 5 (T5) in Singapore.
The master building consultants, comprising three teams, will provide architectural design and engineering consultancy services for the development of T5 and master civil consultants will provide services for the T5-related landside and airfield works.
The master building consultants are: KPF (Singapore), in partnership with Heatherwick Studio and Architects 61, for the provision of architectural design services; Arup Singapore, Mott MacDonald Singapore, and Surbana Jurong Consultants, for the provision of engineering services; and DP Architects, for the provision of design services for commercial spaces.
These companies will provide full consultancy services for the design of the main terminal building, satellite terminal building, ground transportation centre and primary landside roadway.
The master civil consultants appointed are: Arup Singapore, Mott MacDonald Singapore, Surbana Jurong Consultants and Changi Airport Planners and Engineers.
They will provide consultancy services for the design of infrastructure at the landside and airside areas outside of the T5 buildings, including taxiways, aircraft parking stands, roadways and drainage systems, and connections for utilities such as power, water, gas, fuel and telecommunications to the T5 buildings.
CAG executive vice president for airport development Yam Kum Weng said that the award of the contracts comes after months of discussions with each of the shortlisted firms.
He said: “With the aviation industry expected to experience strong growth in the coming decades and demand for capacity at Changi Airport projected to increase annually, the development of T5 as a single integrated terminal will ensure that Changi Airport remains competitive as a leading air hub capable of serving the growing needs of our airline partners and taking the travel experience of passengers to new levels.”
T5 is part of the Changi East development project, which includes a three-runway system, and the development of cargo complexes and other supporting aviation and ground transport infrastructure.
The project will provide additional capacity of up to 50 million passenger movements per annum in its initial phase and 100 additional aircraft stands.
