Construction begins on terminal expansion at Owen Roberts International

Work has started on the terminal expansion project for Owen Roberts International Airport in Grand Cayman, the largest of the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean.

The US$66m expansion project will more than double the capacity of Owen Roberts Airport from 77,000ft² to 207,000ft² and will take three years to complete.

The Cayman Islands Airports Authority (CIAA) commissioned the design by architects RS&H Group in January 2015. The design is based on the silhouette of the local Green Sea Turtle, which has a flattened curved body and paddle-like arms. The three ‘A’ frames of the terminal symbolize the unity between the three islands.

Albert Anderson, CEO for CIAA, said, “I am happy to report that we are right on track for our terminal renovation and expansion project, and we have met all of our key milestones to date.

“The project will be delivered in two main phases and will include full renovation of the existing facility, new east and west expansions, plus the addition of some extra space to the north.

“The phase one contract covers the construction of a new outgoing checked baggage preparation area, checked baggage screening room, office space and second floor mechanical room.

“Phase two, which is expected to begin in march 2016, will include all of the remaining expansion and renovation works. It will be carried out in several sub-phases to enable the terminal to remain fully functional, safe and secure throughout the construction period.”
