Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Terminal 2 Area
Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport opened in 1979 as the main gateway to Taiwan after the other existing airport serving the northern capital Taipei (Songshan Airport) became overcrowded and could not be expanded due to space limitations.
Originally only having one terminal building (Terminal 1), the airport added a new terminal building (Terminal 2) approximately twenty years later in the year 2000 owing to increasing congestion and also to accommodate an increasing amount of passenger traffic that has continued to escalate over the years.
The project included the new main terminal building (Terminal 2), north-south waiting area and parking apron, access roads, parking lots and related facilities.
The Terminal No. 2 building itself is a four story RC structure with two underground levels and a space frame structure. The total area of the terminal building works is 308,000 square meters and is capable of accommodating twenty 747 aircraft at the waiting gates.
The main terminal building and north-south waiting area was originally built to accommodate a peak hour of 5,000 passengers per hour and a yearly total of 17,000,000 passengers, but CECI has recently carried out the design and construction supervision services for expanding the Terminal 2 facilities so that it is now able to handle 22,000,000 passengers per year.
The construction works included
the terminal building structure,
water and power supply,
elevators and escalators,
