JHA provided Mechanical, Electrical, Hydraulics, ESD & Acoustics services for the upgrade and refurbishment of the Brisbane Airport General Aviation Terminal. The upgrade included a new check-in and waiting areas, commercial tenancies, baggage handling system, flight display systems and creation of new communication node for the wider Brisbane Airport Campus.
Brisbane Airport is conveniently located approximately only 14 kilometres from Brisbane central business district. The General Aviation Terminal Upgrade is a multi-staged aviation project undertaken to refurbish and modernise an existing terminal which provide regional charter flights out of Brisbane.
The project provided new building entrance, check-in counters, passenger waiting / meeting rooms, baggage collection, baggage handling, commercial tenancies, airside access, and creation of a new airport communications node. JHA were engaged to provide the services design for the project, which was delivered through the Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) major projects delivery structure, requiring multiple stakeholder consultations with airport maintenance, security, services engineers and ITS staff.
Close consultation and coordination was required to facilitate services provisions to the check-in counters, baggage handling systems, commercial tenancy communications provisions, landside / airside security systems and FIDS (Flight Information Display Systems).
Progressive reporting in the form of Schematic Design and Detailed Design Reports were provided to formally capture the scope of works proposed for the project. Working within an operational terminal also required the need to maintain airport services during construction. To address the need for continued services, the project was separated to 3 stages of work.
JHA designed the building services taking into account the construction stages and future planning, with careful consideration particularly surrounding the replacement of dated legacy systems and creation of the new communication node with tie in to the wider Brisbane Airport precinct.
