Changi Airport Group appoints T4’s main construction contractor

Changi Airport Group (CAG) announced today that it has awarded a S$985-million contract to Takenaka Corporation for the construction of Changi Airport’s Terminal 4 (T4). The award follows a tender which saw five companies submitting proposals.

Takenaka Corporation is a reputable and well-established contractor with a strong track record in the construction of several airports in Japan, the Middle East, Africa

and Asia, including Changi Airport’s Terminal 1. The company was also involved in the upgrading of Changi Airport’s Terminal 2 (2006) and more recently, the upgrading of Terminal 1 (2012).

Scope of Contract

Takenaka Corporation will work closely with CAG and the appointed design consortium1will involve the development of:

 a new passenger terminal building, with a gross floor area of 195,000 square metres and planned capacity of 16 million passenger movements per annum;

 a multi-storey car park and an open-air car park in front of the terminal building to cater for up to 1,500 car park spaces;

 a two-storey holding area for taxis to pick up arriving passengers;

 road improvement works to ensure smooth vehicular movements to and from the terminal, including a new road to funnel outgoing traffic directly from T4 onto the East Coast Parkway;

 a bridge across Airport Boulevard to enable buses and other airside vehicles to move from T4 to remote aircraft stands being built at a land plot south of

Terminal 3; and

 a 68-metre high Ramp Control Tower to oversee and manage aircraft movements in the apron and taxiways around T4 as part of air traffic control operations.

Mr Lee Seow Hiang, CAG’s Chief Executive Officer said, “We thank the companies that had participated in our tender exercise. There were very competitive bids from

local and international companies with vast experience in the construction of major infrastructure projects. The past few months have seen an intensive process for the

CAG team, as it went through several rounds of evaluation. Takenaka Corporation delivered the best overall proposal, which included an innovative construction methodology.”

He added, “CAG is excited to embark on this next phase of T4’s development with Takenaka Corporation. Together, I am confident that we will build a world-class

terminal delivering a great airport experience, and introducing new breakthroughs to redefine the travel experience for our passengers.”

 Mr Shoichiro Shibuta, General Manager of Takenaka Corporation (Singapore) said, “There is no greater honour for us than to participate in this prestigious project. Being

fully aware that Changi Airport shall continue to stay ahead as the air-hub of the region, we are committed to deliver T4 of excellent quality, on time and with optimum safety.”

 About T4

T4 will have 17 contact stands for narrow-body aircraft and four for wide-body aircraft. These stands will come with aerobridges, increasing convenience and

accessibility for passengers. Designed to enable quick turnaround of aircraft, T4 will have the flexibility to serve both regional full-service and low-cost carriers. It will also

come with design and process innovations to redefine passengers’ travel experience, while raising operational efficiency and manpower productivity for airlines and airport agencies. T4 will also see, for the first time at Changi, the

extensive roll-out of a suite of fast and seamless travel initiatives. These self-service and automated options will be offered at check-in, bag drop, immigration clearance

and departure-gate boarding.
Takenaka Corporation is expected to commence construction works in the first quarter of 2014, with T4 scheduled for completion in 2017.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
