The T1 Departures Project at Sydney International Airport involved both an expansion and upgrade to the international terminal at Sydney Airport. The expansion work involved adding some 7,300 square metres to the departures level to provide world class passenger facilities.
The project works included:
Advisian provided a range of services including advice on contracts, procurement, risk management and retail leasing. We also provided overall planning including planning of design, construction, procurement and operational readiness. Planning included the production of 2D modelling of the construction staging.
In addition, Advisian provided monitoring, control and reporting of the progress of the works.
We worked with the Sydney Airports Corporation Limited (SACL) project and design teams during the initial ‘planning and confirmation phases’ providing strategic planning, procurement and risk management advice.
We were subsequently engaged by SACL to assist in the ‘detailed design and procurement phase’ in which a Managing Contractor was selected, and in the construction and commissioning phase providing planning, scheduling, monitoring and reporting services.
Construction commenced in December 2007 and was completed on time in May 2010. Both landside and airside of the departures level of the terminal were significantly redeveloped while the airport continued to operate at maximum or on demand capacity. This was achieved through the development of complex staging plans that allowed the continued uninterrupted operation of the terminal through the careful planning of non-curfew and curfew works. These plans took into account the needs of multiple stakeholders including SACL departments, government agencies, retailers, airline operators and the travelling public.
By engaging Advisian in the early stages of the project development, SACL was able to access our knowledge of the previous major terminal development. We were able to quickly review the types of issues that were likely to emerge in the project and systematically address each of these issues.
Our workshops on issues and strategies, risk, and procurement were useful in focusing the client and stakeholders on setting clear objectives early and developing plans to achieve these objectives.
