Watpac wins Adelaide Airport Terminal Expansion project

05 July 2018

Watpac Limited: Watpac Limited (‘Watpac’ or ‘Group’) today announced it has been appointed to deliver the Construction Management contract for the Adelaide Airport Terminal Expansion, a significant portion of Adelaide Airport Limited’s $165 million project.

The project will support forecast passenger growth to 2029 and will include major expansion and refurbishment works of the existing terminal.

Watpac Limited Managing Director, Martin Monro, said the project award reinforced the Group’s capabilities for delivering projects within live and sensitive environments

“The Adelaide Airport Terminal Expansion project builds on our extensive aviation experience across Australia and reaffirms our expertise in delivering complex projects in sensitive environments, which require meticulous planning and stakeholder engagement to ensure minimal disruption to day-to-day operations,” Mr Monro said.

“The Group is pleased to be working with Adelaide Airport Limited to deliver this important expansion to ensure the airport’s ongoing role as one of South Australia’s most significant economic precincts.”

Watpac Construction South Australia State Manager, Tim Tape, said the team looked forward to once again working with valued client Adelaide Airport Limited.

“Watpac has built a strong relationship with Adelaide Airport Limited having delivered the $76 million Adelaid Airport Landside Infrastructure project in 2013, and undertaking the subsequent infrastructure services corridor works and demolition of the original International Terminal Building,” Mr Tape said.

“The project will benefit from the extensive experience Watpac’s local South Australian team has gained by delivering major projects throughout Adelaide, as well as our comprehensive network of local trade partners.

“We anticipate the workforce to reach 200 people at peak construction.”

The major upgrade works also include expanding the international inbound passenger processing and baggage claim facility, international arrivals duty free and passenger and immigration facilities, retail tenancies and the international gate lounge and duty free areas.

In addition, Watpac will deliver a new retail concourse with passenger facilities and amenities, and provision for Virgin Australia’s domestic lounge and other international airline lounges.

Associated works include demolition of Aviation House, services relocations, landside works and airside fencing, civil works, landscaping and construction of entry roadways.

Site works will commence next month and the project is anticipated to be completed in 2021.

Locally the Group is currently building residential project EI8HT South Esplanade in Adelaide’s prestigious beachside community of Glenelg, and Kodo, the city’s tallest residential tower.

Nationally Watpac is delivering a number of major projects including the Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence and North Queensland Stadium in Queensland, numerous Explosive Ordnance Logistics Reform Programs with the Department of Defence across New South Wales and Victoria, and the recently announced Hornsby Kuring-gai Hospital Stage 2 and Medical Imaging building project in New South Wales.
