Changi Airport Group (CAG) has appointed master building consultants to provide architectural design and engineering consultancy services for the development of Changi Airport’s Terminal 5 (T5). At the same time, the company has also appointed master civil consultants for the T5-related landside and airfield works.

The firms that have been appointed as master building consultants include: KPF (Singapore) Pte Ltd, in partnership with Heatherwick Studio and Architects 61 Private Limited, for the provision of architectural design services; Arup Singapore Private Limited, Mott MacDonald Singapore Pte Limited and Surbana Jurong Consultants Pte Ltd, for the provision of engineering services; and DP Architects Pte Ltd, for the provision of design services for commercial spaces.

The three teams above will provide full consultancy services for the design of the main terminal building, satellite terminal building, ground transportation centre and primary landside roadway.

The master civil consultants appointed comprise: Arup Singapore Private Limited, Mott MacDonald Singapore Pte Limited, Surbana Jurong Consultants Pte Ltd and Changi Airport Planners and Engineers Pte Ltd. These firms will provide consultancy services for the design of infrastructure at the landside and airside areas outside of the T5 buildings. These include taxiways, aircraft parking stands, roadways and drainage systems, as well as the connections for utilities such as power, water, gas, fuel and telecommunications to the T5 buildings.

“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 and taking the travel experience of passengers to new levels,” said Yam Kum Weng, CAG’s executive vice president for Airport Development.

Following the appointments of the master building and civil consultants, CAG will now embark on the full design journey for the T5 project. The terminal is part of the larger Changi East development project that includes a three-runway system, as well as the development of cargo complexes and other supporting aviation and ground transport infrastructure. The project will provide Changi Airport with additional capacity of up to 50 million passenger movements per annum in its initial phase and 100 more aircraft stands.
