The Multi User Terminal Redevelopment was a major redevelopment of the terminal precinct at Canberra Airport. The works included a new 50,000m² terminal, two 38,000m² car parks with office accommodation on the top levels, a central elevated road, road network infrastructure and upgrading and extension to aprons and taxiways to service the aircraft.
All works were undertaken in and around the existing operating terminal, carparks and aprons. One of the main challenges of the project was the need to limit the disruption to the travelling public, meaning the planning and staging of these works was critical to the project stakeholders.
Designed by Rudds Consulting Engineers, the main mechanical features of the terminal buildings are the two central energy tri-generation systems to provide electricity, heating, chilled and condenser water to all parts of the terminal and adjoining structures. Conditioning to all parts of the terminal is supplied by four electric and two absorption chillers, six hot water heaters and is distributed via a low temperature air system comprising of over 65 AHUs and 150 VAVs.
