The concrete structure of the Hong Kong International Airport Midfield Concourse has topped out, marking a major landmark in the construction of this major project. The 105,000 sq m scheme is due to complete in late 2015 to a design by Lead Consultant Joint Venture Mott MacDonald-Arup. Aedas is the architect for the project.
Despite its early stage, this aviation scheme received a Merit Award for New Building in Hong Kong at the Green Building Awards 2012 in light of its sustainable qualities. These include an optimized glazed façade, north-facing roof lights, high-efficiency water cooled chillers, plus 20,000+ LED lights and 1,200 sq m of solar panels.
Situated between two existing runways at the Hong Kong International Airport, the new development is spread over five levels with a generous concourse enjoying similar ceiling heights to Terminal 1. In total there will be 20 aircraft parking stands (19 bridge served) including two Code F stands.
