The Changi Airport Group (CAG) has announced the appointment of the Master Building Consultants, comprising three teams, that will provide architectural design and engineering consultancy services for the development of Changi Airport’s Terminal 5 (T5). It also announced the appointment of the Master Civil Consultants for the T5-related landside and airfield works.
The firms that have been appointed are: KPF (Singapore) Pte Ltd, in partnership with Heatherwick Studio and Architects 61 Private Limited, for the provision of architectural design services;
Arup Singapore Private Limited, Mott MacDonald Singapore Pte Limited, and Surbana Jurong Consultants Pte Ltd, for the provision of engineering services; and
DP Architects Pte Ltd, for the provision of design services for commercial spaces.
CAG says these firms 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 Private Limited, Mott MacDonald Singapore Pte Limited, Surbana Jurong Consultants Pte Ltd and Changi Airport Planners and Engineers Pte Ltd. These firms will provide consultancy services for the design of infrastructure at the landside and airside areas outside of the T5 buildings. These include taxiways, aircraft parking stands, roadways and drainage systems, as well as the connections for utilities such as power, water, gas, fuel and telecommunications to the T5 buildings.
The announcement was made on April 13 and Mr Yam Kum Weng, CAG’s Executive Vice President for Airport Development, commented: “Today’s award of the contracts comes after months of in-depth discussions with each of the shortlisted firms. We thank all the firms for working closely with us on their proposals for this project and look forward to taking the development of T5 forward with our appointed consultants.
“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.”
The terminal is part of the larger Changi East development project that includes a three-runway system, as well as the development of cargo complexes and other supporting aviation and ground transport infrastructure. The project will provide Changi Airport with additional capacity of up to 50 million passenger movements per annum in its initial phase and 100 more aircraft stands.
