Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 25 April 2013

Changi Airport Group (CAG) has appointed an architect and design consortium to pilot the overall architecture, design concept and construction of Changi Airports Terminal 4 (T4).

Members of the appointed Consortium include:

- SAA Architects Pte Ltd Lead Agency
- Benoy Ltd
- AECOM Singapore Pte Ltd
- Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner (SEA) Pte Ltd

SAA Architects is one of Singapores leading architecture firms. It has bagged numerous Building and Construction Authority Green Mark Awards for projects such as nex and Jem. UK-based design firm Benoy is recognised for works such as ION Orchard, while AECOM Singapore and Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner (SEA) are renowned civil and structural engineering, and mechanical and electrical engineering consultants respectively.

The appointment of the consortium follows a design competition which saw five consortia comprising Singapore and internationally renowned firms submitting proposals.

The consortium is now working closely with CAGs operations and development teams to integrate operational requirements into the design of T4 to ensure that the unique Changi Experience is preserved and further enhanced for travellers and staff working in the terminal.

Workshops will be conducted with various stakeholders, including airlines, ground handlers, immigration and security agencies, retail and food & beverage operators as well as other users to ensure that the T4 design meets the needs of each party.

The two-storey terminal is being designed with the flexibility to meet the operational needs of both regional full service and low cost carriers. Demolition of the previous Budget Terminal is almost complete and groundbreaking for T4 is scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year, with operations to begin in 2017.

We thank the many participants in our competition. We were impressed with their passion in wanting to help shape Changi Airports future. The SAA-led consortium delivered the best proposal which encapsulated our vision for T4 by breaking new ground in passenger experience for travellers, while ensuring smooth and efficient operations for airlines and airport agencies, said Mr Yam Kum Weng, CAGs Executive Vice President (Air Hub & Development). Architecturally, the design of T4 will be functional, and yet have its own distinct character compared to the other three terminals at Changi Airport. Due to height restrictions and the area of the site available, T4 will be smaller in terms of physical space and handling capacity. Our focus for the development of T4 will be on its interior and ensuring that the design and layout continues to be passenger-centric and user-friendly. It will offer what passengers want a good range of leisure amenities, convenient facilities and attractive commercial offerings.
