Parsons Brinckerhoff, in a joint venture with NACO and T.Y. Lin International, has secured a $44 million USD consultancy contract for the development of the Terminal 3 Area at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TTIA). Awarded by Taoyuan Airport Company, Parsons Brinckerhoff will collaborate with its strategic partners in this seven-year contract to enhance Taoyuan’s International Airport.
TTIA currently handles 25 million passengers annually and is preparing for growth of up to 60 million passengers by 2030. In the near future the surrounding Taoyuan region will be developed for commercial, industrial and residential use with a focus on aviation-related activities. The new Terminal 3 will be connected with Terminal 2 and the area in between will be developed to accommodate a ground transportation center, parking and commercial real estate. Both terminals will have stations served by the regional light rail system. The new airport terminal will be capable of handling 43 million passengers annually in its ultimate phase.
"We are proud to be a part of this strategic development,” said Frank Lin, General Manager of Parsons Brinckerhoff, Taiwan. “We look forward to working with the Taoyuan Airport Company to meet quality, cost and schedule requirements, as well as facilitate the development of the Taoyuan Aerotropolis Program."
