  • Three Airbus A330-capable gates, each with two aerobridges, and four other aircraft gates.

The project team successfully managed the challenges that accompanied the complex airside construction works at an operational passenger airport, including complying with stringent airport security and occupational health, safety and environmental requirements.

Before being awarded this significant transport sector contract, Built Environs was stationed onsite at Perth Airport, delivering $9 million in Terminal 1 forward works. This project involved the construction of facilities to service the international and intrastate terminals, as well as underground services and structural foundation works to allow for the expansion of the international terminal.
