Leighton Asia wins Hong Kong airport expansion contract


Leighton Asia has won an order from the Airport Authority Hong Kong to deliver the Terminal 1 (T1) Annex Building and Carpark 4 Expansion Project at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

The contract brings revenue of about $278M to Leighton Asia, which is part of CIMIC Group construction company CPB Contractors.

The scope of the project will include the expansion of the airport’s T1, including the construction of a seven-storey reinforced concrete structure with steel truss roof with associated new check-in counters, baggage reclaim carousels, departure security screening channels, and departure immigration counters.

The expansion of the Carpark 4 facilities will include the delivery of an 11-storey reinforced concrete structure connecting to the existing Carpark 4 and T1 arrivals ramp.

Adolfo Valderas, CIMIC Group CEO, said: “CIMIC Group and Leighton Asia are pleased to be involved in the expansion of Hong Kong International Airport and to contribute our major project experience to accommodate the future growth of one of the world’s busiest aviation hubs.

“We have diverse design and engineering capabilities in delivering new and upgraded commercial and defence aviation infrastructure, successfully solving complex problems and delivering certainty on large-scale projects that enhance global travel networks.”

CPB Contractors and Leighton Asia managing director, Román Garrido, said: “Leighton Asia’s building expertise and strong track record of successfully delivering projects in busy, live operational environments are part of our core capabilities.

“We are committed to working with our client to achieve the project’s planned operational, social and economic benefits through innovative and cost-effective solutions.”

Work on the project is set to begin in April 2017 and be complete in 2019.
