Adelaide Airport Terminal Expansion Project

18 September 2019


Congratulations to Adelaide Airport Ltd, together with its contractor, Watpac, and other consultants in achieving practical completion of Stage 1 of the Terminal Expansion (TEx) Project.

The TEx Project is a $165 million dollar expansion of the total footprint of the existing terminal.  When completed, it will significantly improve the arrivals and departures experience for international passengers, with a second, longer baggage belt for arrivals, more space for emigration and immigration processing, expanded security screening, a larger duty free precinct for arrivals and departures, and expanded dining and retail options at Adelaide Airport.  It is anticipated to be complete in 2021.

Stage 1 represents a significant milestone with completion of a large part of the new build area and a shift in focus to the internal concourse of the terminal.  A time lapse of construction to date can be viewed here:

We are excited to be working with Adelaide Airport Ltd on this project in both a construction and property capacity.  Below are photos of a recent site tour by Thomson Geer Partners Tony Saint, Chris Kelly and Michael Liebich together with Special Counsel Shannon Schwarz.
