The new Three Runway project is to expand the existing Hong Kong International Airport to meet future aviation growth and Hong Kong development. This project consists of a series of infrastructure projects including a 650Ha land reclamation, a new concourse building and the expansion of Terminal 2 Complex connected by an Automatic Passenger Mover (APM) system and Baggage Handling System (BHS) to provide arrivals, departures and passenger services.
The Leighton-Chun Wo Joint Venture is responsible for the construction of the new Terminal 2 basement structure, a South Annex Building, future viaduct foundations and demolition works required for the expansion of the existing Terminal 2 building. The scope includes utilities diversion, foundation works including diaphragm walls, bored piles, socketed H-piles and mini-piles, deep excavation, underground reinforced concrete structure, mechanical and electrical works, demolition works and airport alteration and additional works.
Key challenges for the project include working in a live environment, maintaining existing facilities and infrastructure.
