20th Nov 2020: joint venture awarded HK$12bn Hong Kong Airport expansion contract

The Airport Authority of Hong Kong have awarded the Balfour Beatty 50:50 joint venture, Gammon, a four-year HK$12.88 billion (c. £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 work forms part of the Three-runway System project, 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 significant contract for the Airport Authority Hong Kong this year and the largest single contract ever awarded to Gammon.”

In the first half of 2020, Gammon secured the HK$7.2 billion (c. £760 million) major tunnel contract at Hong Kong International Airport to deliver tunnels and associated works for an automatic people mover and baggage handling system on behalf of Airport Authority Hong Kong.
