HKIA Midfield Concourse Named Global Best Airport Project by ENR
The Mott MacDonald-Arup Joint Venture is very proud and delighted that the Midfield Concourse, the newly completed airport concourse at Hong Kong International Airport has won the Engineering News-Record (ENR) Global Best Projects Awards 2016 in the category of Best Airport/Port Project.
Dedicated to honouring the project teams behind outstanding design and construction efforts, the awards focus on the risks and rewards – and the hurdles overcome – of designing and constructing internationally. The judges also examined safety performance, innovations, challenges, and design and construction quality, with a special emphasis on the diversity of global project teams and their collaboration. They also considered how the project benefits the local community and/or the construction industry.
Opened in December 2015, the 105,000m² five-level concourse provides 20 aircraft parking stands, including two Code F (A380) stands. Passengers will also be connected to Terminal 1 via an extended automated people mover (APM). Numerous cutting-edge green technologies and a total of 35 green features have been incorporated in the design of the project to maximise efficiency and sustainability. The concourse is expected to increase HKIA’s handling capacity by at least 10 million passengers per year.
Mott MacDonald-Arup Joint Venture has provided full multidisciplinary design and construction support including structure, MEP, airport systems, façade, sustainability, APM, fire, baggage handling system, acoustics, logistics and specialist lighting. The joint venture has been supported by the architect Aedas, who has also worked closely with OTC Limited on the planning of the concourse.
