Changi Airport Group today revealed that Takenaka Corporation has clinched a $323 million contract for works related to the expansion of Changi Airport’s Terminal 1 (T1), following a competitive tender.
Takenaka Corporation is an established contractor with a strong track record in the development of airports in Japan, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
The company was involved in several of Changi Airport’s development projects, including the ongoing construction of Terminal 4, as well as the previous upgrading of T1 (2012) and Terminal 2 (2006).
The works to be undertaken by Takenaka include the revamp of the T1 Departure Check-in Hall, which involves the replacement of existing check-in counters and the installation of two new check-in rows to increase passenger handling capacity.
A cluster of five retail and dining outlets located at the T1 Departure Hall will discontinue operations in the second quarter of 2015, to allow for the commencement of construction for these check-in rows. Passengers at T1 will continue to be served by other retail and dining outlets at the terminal.
