Samsung C&T has won a ₩1.8tn (US$1.6bn) contract from the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Corporation for the construction of Terminal 3 at Taoyuan International Airport.

Samsung C&T formed a consortium with RSEA Engineering, a Taiwanese general construction company, to win this project, which is expected to last 60 months. The new 550,000m2  passenger terminal and boarding hall will have a capacity of 45 million passengers per year and Samsung will be working closely with architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP), who won the design competition in 2015, to deliver the new gateway project to the island of Taiwan.

According to Samsung C&T, this is a high-level construction project due to the large-scale roof steel trusses and irregular ceiling construction and the need to avoid interfering with the operations of the existing Terminals 1 and 2.

Samsung C&T has previous airport construction experience, having successfully built Incheon International Airport’s first passenger terminal and carried out the expansion of Mongolia’s Ulaanbaatar New International Airport. Samsung C&T is currently working on a ground improvement project for Hong Kong’s Chek Lap Kok International Airport, the expansion of a runway in Singapore’s Changi International Airport and the expansion of Bangladesh’s Dhaka International Airport.

An official from Samsung C&T said, “Through this order, we have once again consolidated our position as a top player in the airport construction project.”
