The next 12 months will see some significant changes at Perth Airport with the completion of several projects in the current $1 billion redevelopment program.

The airport has awarded Ertech Holdings Pty Ltd an A$16.6 million construction contract to transform the front of Terminal 1 (T1).

The T1 Forecourt Project includes the construction of an expansive landscaped forecourt that will improve access to the Terminal, and is part of a A$42 million makeover of the Terminal forecourt including construction of a spacious 27-metre entry plaza.

Ertech Executive Chairman, Jim Giumelli said, Ertech is pleased to be selected to undertake this important and exciting project for Perth Airport. The contract supports the transformation of the international gateway into Western Australia and we are proud to be involved in another world class project.

The first section of the expanded forecourt, directly in front of the entry to the new Domestic Pier and International Departures area, will be completed to coincide with the opening of the Pier later this year.

The paved forecourt area will provide a more pleasant environment for passengers, with new facilities such as a bus station, improved pedestrian access and pick-up/drop-off areas, covered walkways and seating.

Other features will include full Wi-Fi coverage, additional lighting, public art and landscaping incorporating plants native to Western Australia.

The forecourt redevelopment will also make provision for future terminal expansion plans, including new retail outlets.

Perth Airport Chief Executive Officer Brad Geatches said, Ertech is an established Western Australian company that brings a wealth of civil engineering and construction experience to this project. We are pleased to welcome them to Perth Airport and are confident that they will be able to deliver a high quality product.

The T1 Forecourt Project is scheduled for completion in May 2016.
