Full project details
Brisbane Airport’s International Terminal has been expanded, delivering the master plan to cater for more international travelers and larger aircraft including the Airbus A380.
As Managing Contractor, Laing O’Rourke has delivered an important element of Brisbane Airport’s master plan for its International Terminal. The Northern Concourse Expansion caters for increasing numbers of international passengers, delivering two new gates – Gates 73 and 74 – that can dock larger aircraft including the Airbus A380.
The scope was to construct a range of airside and landside works including:
- An extra 11,000 square meters of space
- Six more boarding zones
- New passenger zones
- Four new walk-out gates
- Four new aerobridges (2 MARS gates)
Laing O’Rourke’s industry-leading Digital Engineering approach is central to our planning and delivery strategy to engage with airport stakeholders and we virtually delivered our construction solutions in the Planning Phase, well before any work crews mobilised to site.
Following Brisbane Airport’s approval of the design developed in the Planning Phase, Laing O’Rourke managed the Delivery Phase, overseeing a range of subcontractors to safely construct the project with minimal disruption to the airport, airline operators and retailers and the travelling public.
