We are extremely proud to have delivered the first new terminal to be built at Perth Airport for 26 years.
The new single storey building is larger than both existing domestic terminals (T3 and T4). Taking 500,000 hours to complete, the fast-tracked project opened on time on Saturday, 2 March 2013, less than 18 months after construction commenced in September 2011.
Terminal 2 was built adjacent to the International Airport, Terminal 1, and has the capacity to hold up to 36 aircraft - highlighting our ability to successfully deliver while adhering to strict security protocols in and around airports.
The terminal building features access via a landscaped plaza, a check-in hall with 16 check-in counters and space for new check-in technology, including self-service and bag drop.
A large central passenger security screening zone leading to a spacious departure lounge has also been constructed, in addition to 14 aircraft gates, high quality covered walkways and three large baggage reclaim belts.
The works also included amendments to parking with dedicated pick-up and drop-off lanes at the front of the terminal and easy access to parking, buses and taxis for arriving and departing passengers.
1,900 tonnes of steel and 8,000 m3 of concrete were used to construct the 20,000 sqm Terminal 2 and 10,000 sqm surrounding forecourt and landscaping areas.
The new terminal also includes a number of environmental features such as 2,000 cubic metres rainwater harvesting system and re-use, and underground delivery of ventilation to reduce energy costs.
