Weeks to build
The $16M Moranbah Airport Extension and airside works were undertaken on a design & construct basis and consisted of 2970m² of airport terminal set up for dual operation by BMA in one half, with the other half commissioned for public use. The building houses single check-in and baggage handling facilities with dual arrival and departure facilities. Working to an immovable deadline set by Civil Aviation Safety Authority, the facility was constructed in strict accordance with aviation security requirements.
Meeting the fixed deadline became quite challenging due to development approval issues, however, Hutchinson Builders was able to claw back three months in order to meet all critical dates and final deadline.
