Project Details

$110m redevelopment project to deliver world-class passenger experience

Located in Williamtown, NSW, the Newcastle Airport is currently undertaking a major redevelopment that when complete will bring significant and sustainable economic benefits to the region through inbound tourism and new freight-related industries, including import and export.

Expected to be completed in late 2024, the $110 million project will see Australia’s sixth largest regional airport upgraded to Code E status to allow for wide-bodied, long-haul aircraft to fly in and out of Williamtown. Existing terminal facilities will be expanded to process the larger aircraft and support the significant increase in passenger numbers expected to transit through the new facility.

Working alongside construction specialists Construction Control, Benmax will deliver the HVAC mechanical services for the new expanded terminal building. Designed by COX Architecture and targeting a 5-star Green Star rating, the project will increase the current terminal footprint by 50% delivering new arrivals and departure processes, retail opportunities and a world-class passenger experience for the those travelling to the region.

The project will be complex and delivered while the airport remains operational with total works for the redevelopment to include significant upgrades to the airport’s runway and existing terminal building, construction of a new premium covered parking garage, relocation of the existing short-stay parking garage, along with road upgrade works around the precinct.

After working with Construction Control to deliver the Canberra Airport Multiuser Terminal Expansion, the Benmax team are well placed to deliver this milestone project for the Hunter region and look forward to working with all partners to achieve another successful outcome.

Working alongside Construction Control, Benmax will deliver the HVAC mechanical services for the major terminal expansion project at Newcastle Airport.
