A joint venture of Parsons Brinckerhoff, Netherlands Airport Consultants (NACO) and T.Y. Lin International has received a $44m contract to develop Terminal 3 at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TTIA).

Under the seven-year contract awarded by Taoyuan Airport Company, Parsons Brinckerhoff will be responsible for programme management of the project and will work with strategic partners to improve the airport's facilities.

NACO will take care of the provision of terminal area master planning and, in collaboration with T.Y. Lin International, they will utilise their knowledge for local engineering and Terminal 3 site management.

The new Terminal 3 will be linked to Terminal 2, with the area in between developed to house a ground transportation centre, parking and commercial real estate.

"Parsons Brinckerhoff will be responsible for programme management of the project and will work with strategic partners to improve the airport's facilities."

The $1.66bn terminal is being built as part of TWD463bn ($15.5bn) investment to accommodate growth in traffic.

After completion in late 2018, the terminal will have a passenger handling capacity 43 million passengers per year.

The project will be partly funded by the Taiwanese government with TWD$336.6bn ($11.47bn), with the remaining TWD126.4bn ($4.3bn) financed through private sector investments.

The surrounding Taoyuan region will be developed for commercial, industrial and residential use, mainly focussed on aviation-related activities.

TTIA currently serves 25 million passengers per year and is expecting a growth of around 60 million passengers by 2030, with its cargo volume predicted to reach 4.5 million tonnes per year, and the overall takeoffs and landings at the airport are expected to reach 500,000 per year.
