Megawide Construction Corp. and India’s GMR Infrastructure has bagged the contract to design, engineer and construct the new Passenger Terminal building (PTB) at Clark International Airport in Pampanga after the consortium offered to build the facility for ₱9.36 billion, about 25 percent below the ceiling price of ₱12.55 billion set by Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA).
The new passenger terminal building with floor area 82,600 m2 is intended for low cost carriers and will have capacity of 8 million passengers per annum. It will supplement the main international terminal with four million passengers capacity per year bringing to 12 million passengers annually when completed by 2020.
The terminal project also involves the construction and installation of all required associated facilities—both landside and airside, to support its operations.
Other bidders of the terminal project were China State Construction Engineering Corporation Limited, China Harbour Engineering Company Limited, Sinohydro Corporation Limited, and the consortium of Tokwing Construction Corporation and China Machinery Engineering Corporation.
The new terminal building will break ground on December 20, 2017 at the Clark Civil Aviation Complex in Pampanga.
Meanwhile, a separate bidding will be undertaken by BCDA next year for the Operations and Maintenance contract of the terminals.
Clark Airport handled close to 1.5 million passengers as of December 15 catering 125 domestic and 140 international flights per week.
