Airport operator Changi Airport Group (CAG) has appointed three teams to provide architectural design and engineering consultancy services for the development of Terminal 5 (T5) at Changi Airport, Singapore. A consultancy team has also been appointed for the T5-related landside and airfield works.
The three teams selected as Master Building Consultants are KPF Singapore, Heatherwick Studio and Architects 61 for the provision of architectural design services; Arup Singapore, Mott MacDonald Singapore and Surbana Jurong Consultants for the provision of engineering services; and DP Architects for the provision of design services for commercial spaces. Combined, these firms will provide full consultancy services for the design of the main terminal, satellite terminal, ground transportation center and primary landside roadway.
To act as the master civil consultants, CAG selected Arup Singapore, Mott MacDonald Singapore, Surbana Jurong Consultants and Changi Airport Planners and Engineers. These firms will provide consultancy services for the design of infrastructure at the landside and airside areas outside the T5 buildings, including taxiways, aircraft parking stands, roadways and drainage systems.
Yam Kum Weng, executive vice president for airport development, CAG, said, “Today’s award of the contracts comes after months of in-depth discussions with each of the shortlisted firms. With the aviation industry expected to experience strong growth in the coming decades and demand for capacity at Changi Airport projected to increase annually, the development of T5 as a single integrated terminal will ensure that Changi Airport remains competitive as a leading air hub capable of serving the growing needs of our airline partners.”
With the appointments of the master building and civil consultants, CAG will embark on the full design journey for the T5 project. The terminal is part of the larger Changi East development project, which includes a three-runway system, as well as the development of cargo complexes and other supporting aviation and ground transport infrastructure.
