Main construction contractor appointed for second package of works to develop Changi Airport’s three-runway system

Published on : Wednesday, August 17, 2016

changiChangi Airport Group (CAG) announced today the award of a S$1.107 billion contract to a joint venture formed by Hock Lian Seng Infrastructure and Sembcorp Design and Construction(“the JV”), for the second package of works relating to the development of a three-runway system at Singapore Changi Airport. The award is the result of a competitive tender which saw the participation of four tenderers.

 

As part of Changi Airport’s capacity expansion plans, several packages of works will be undertaken to operationalise a three-runway system at the airport by the early 2020s. The scope to be executed by the JV represents the second package of works for this programme, which will be carried out near the airport’s existing Runway 2. They include pavement works, drainage works, mechanical and electrical works, security fencing, perimeter roads, ancillary buildings, as well as other supporting works such as services and road diversions.

 

The first package of works for the three-runway system was awarded in October 2015 to a joint venture by Samsung C&T Corporation and Koh Brothers. These works, which cover the proposed Runway 3 extension and its vicinity, are underway.

 

Changi Airport’s terminals are currently served by two runways (Runways 1 and 2). As part of the airport’s development plans, CAG is concurrently expanding both Changi’s terminal capacity – through the building of Terminals 4 and 5, and the expansion of Terminal 1 – as well as its runway and airfield capacity through the development of the three-runway system. To achieve the latter, a third runway (Runway 3), previously used by the military, is being extended to handle larger aircraft and connected to the rest of Changi Airport through a network of supporting taxiways. The extension of the runway, together with the new taxiway system, will total about 40 kilometres in length. A whole suite of supporting infrastructure and systems will also be built to support three-runway operations.

 

Mr Yam Kum Weng, CAG’s Executive Vice President, Development (Changi East & Terminal 4), said, “The development of a three-runway system is an important part of Changi Airport’s expansion plans, which will take the Singapore air hub into its next phase of growth. The project, which takes place amid ongoing airport operations, is complex and requires meticulous planning and excellent execution across different phases. We look forward to partnering the Hock Lian Seng and Sembcorp Design and Construction JV in this journey, as we work together to ensure the highest quality and standards in carrying out this project.”

 

Mr Chua Leong Hai, CEO of Hock Lian Seng Holdings, and Mr Yam Ah Mee, CEO of Sembcorp Design and Construction, said in a joint statement, The joint venture partnership of Hock Lian Seng and Sembcorp Design and Construction are appreciative that CAG has entrusted us to deliver this complex project at Changi Airport. We look forward to working closely in value partnership with CAG to deliver this project successfully.”
