Perth Airport: Main construction contract for new domestic pier & international departures awarded

Australia’s Perth Airport announced (25-Jan-2013) the main construction contract for the largest component of the Perth Airport redevelopment has been awarded to Built Environs, part of the McConnell Dowell Group. Built Environs will construct the new domestic pier and international departures expansion at the western end of the existing international terminal. The total value of the project is over AUD330 million (USD344.7 million). Early construction works for the new pier commenced on site four months ago. Built Environs will commence the main building works next month and the project is scheduled for completion in Jun-2014. The new pier will substantially increase international departure capacity and deliver a greatly enhanced international departures experience. The international component includes:

  • 18 new international check-in desks;
  • Two A380 capable aircraft gates, with two aerobridges on each. The first of the A380 gates will be operating within 12 months;
  • Expanded international departure lounge, including three new airline lounges;
  • New and expanded retail offerings. [more - original PR]
