Hong Kong Airport's expansion contract awarded to Balfour Beatty

The Airport Authority Hong Kong has awarded Balfour Beatty’s joint venture, Gammon, the four-year HK$12.88 billion (£1.27 billion) contract for the expansion of Terminal 2 at Hong Kong International Airport.

Gammon will be responsible for the expansion of the main Terminal 2 building and construction of interconnecting bridges, mechanical and electrical works, as well as associated viaducts and roads.

The expansion of Terminal 2 is part of the Three-Runway System project at the airport, which on completion will allow for both arrivals and departures from one terminal and increase overall passenger capacity.

Leo Quinn, Balfour Beatty Group Chief Executive, said: “This award marks Gammon’s second contract for the Airport Authority Hong Kong in 2020 and the largest single contract ever awarded to Gammon.

“Through leveraging wide-ranging engineering expertise and offsite and modular construction approaches, Gammon has secured a material share of the Hong Kong market which continues to look favourable with significant infrastructure opportunities ahead.”
