CHANGI AIRPORT / Terminal 3

these are renderings of the currently under construction terminal. (please also go to pg3 for amazing and large renditions scanned from a book)




Singapore Changi Airport's Terminal 3 will have a flat but intriguing roof consisting of many skylights allowing natural light into the terminal building. The roof will limit the amount of direct sunlight into the building through the use of louvres suspended above and below the skylights, filling Terminal 3 with diffused, ambient light during the day. At night, artificial light bounced off the ceiling creates a soothing and comfortable environment for passengers. This unique feature of Terminal 3 will also be seen by passengers waiting to collect their bags at the baggage claim hall.




Passengers using Terminal 3 can expect to move around with ease and minimum dependence on signages. This is possible as Terminal 3 will adopt a see-through layout concept, making it easier for travellers to orientate themselves. This is part of the four guiding principles adopted by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) when designing Terminal 3, namely, clarity, natural lighting, external views and maintainability.

Terminal 3 and its associated works will cost S$1.5 billion. It will add a capacity of 20 million passengers a year, bringing the total capability of Changi Airport to 64 million passengers till the year 2020. When opened in 2006, Terminal 3 will add another 28 aerobridge gates to Changi Airport, with up to eight that will be designed to handle the new generation of large aircraft, the A380.

Thank you heaps, I've been waiting for so long to see some renderings of T3. But I am still a little confused as to its location within the airport. Will it be north of T1?

Very impressive pictures!
This will definitely help Changi maintain its number 1 position.

I saw the new subway at the airport..looks cool, although unless I was really free and had little luggage, I would take a taxi.

Yes, Changi has 2 runways at the moment.

Does anyone know if the inter-terminal train shuttle will be extended to T3?

They should, although T3 seems to be a bit further off.

That clear span bridge looks like Santiago Clatrava's work. Anyone know the architect? But the ceiling is...disturbing! hehe

MAY DELAY NEW TERMINAL BUILDING

Singapore may delay plans to expand Changi Airport because of the global downturn in the travel industry, a minister said in remarks published 3rd December in the Straits Times.



Transport Minister Yeo Cheow Tong said a decision on whether to go ahead with the construction of a third terminal for Changi costing 1.5 billion Singapore dollars (US$819 million) would be made in the coming months.



"We want to be sure that we don't complete Terminal 3 and have it half empty" Mr Yeo said.



Officials from the transport Ministry were unable to give further details. The new terminal was originally planned to be ready in early 2006.



According to the blueprint, the new terminal would be among the first in the world capable of handling the new Airbus A-380 superjumbo.



As planned, the four storey terminal could handle 20 million passengers a year, and would increase the annual passenger capacity of Singapore's national airport to 64 million.



Changi has been voted in the travel press as one of the worlds' best airports because of its efficient operations and shopping, business and leisure facilities.
