The building is part of the HK$141.5bn (£14.7bn) project to develop a three-runway system (3RS) at the airport.
The passenger building will have a floor area of 280,000m2 and will be design as one of the world’s greenest airports. Its features will include natural light indoors and a landscaped courtyard at the centre of the building. The extensive use of natural light is intended not only to improve the experience for the passenger, but also to help reduce energy, adding to the sustainable design credentials for the concourse.
“The airport is an important symbol of any city, and we are extremely pleased to continue making the Hong Kong International Airport the pride of Hong Kong,” said Sean Chiao, president of Aecom Asia Pacific. “We look forward to leveraging our connected expertise to deliver designs for this major project as well as the airport’s Terminal 2 Expansion for which we were awarded consultancy work earlier.”
