The main Domestic Terminal was widened and expanded 35 meters to the south, which also incorporated the expansion of the two southern piers by doubling their corridor widths. In addition to the Terminal expansion, Aurecon managed and coordinated all aspects of the airfield pavement project during the planning, design, documentation, construction, equipping and commissioning stages.
The Domestic Terminal expansion was unique and technically demanding, requiring Aurecon to undertake detailed coordination and planning with the airport stakeholders and the main contractor, to maintain continued “business-as-usual” operations of the airport throughout the redevelopment works.
A significant portion was Aurecon's design of temporary works and staged works, to ensure the uninterrupted operation and passenger safety of the airport. The project was delivered with minimal disruption to the public and aviation stakeholders, no significant incidents, and no delay to airline operators.
The Wellington International Airport 2030 Master Plan predicts the number of passengers using the airport each year to reach more than 10 million. The Wellington International Airport also now provides a positive and memorable experience to passengers at one of Wellington’s key gateways to the city and the provinces of the north and south islands of New Zealand.
