Changi Airport Group has awarded a Sin$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 has 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).

Takenaka Corporation will now work closely with CAG and the appointed design consortium to refine the design of T4 before construction. The construction works will 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, “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.”

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.
