CBI member Mott MacDonald was appointed to provide airfield facilities design consultancy services for Hong Kong International Airport’s (HKIA) three-runway system (3RS).
The project is at the centre of Airport Authority Hong Kong’s (AAHK) expansion plans to help meet future air traffic demand and maintain Hong Kong’s competitiveness as an international aviation hub. The design of the 3RS airfield facilities comprises all airport pavement, airfield systems, and utility services as well as modifications to the existing north runway to enable the conversion of HKIA’s existing two-runway system into a 3RS.
Once complete, the 3RS will allow HKIA to handle up to 102 million passengers, 8.9 million tonnes of cargo, and 607,000 aircraft movements each year by 2030. Mott MacDonald will work with Atkins as their key partner and will provide aviation consultancy services covering airport master planning and engineering.
This includes the design of the apron pavement, aircraft parking stands, and fully serviced contact gates, the delivery of airport systems engineering, such as ground lighting and apron systems, as well as planning and engineering for a fire training facility.
The consultancy will also be responsible for airport planning and will carry out a road traffic impact assessment, undertake studies relating to cargo, airflow, and security, and review airport height restrictions and airside fire station capacity.
