Project: $25M Passenger Terminal Redevelopment

Commencement: March 2020

Project Lead: NS Group

Builder: ADCO

The terminal project is part of a suite of major upgrades ($40M+) to airside pavements and infrastructure to improve safety, security, flexibility and capability. Completed projects include a second taxiway, an asphalt overlay of the runway and runway lighting upgrades. 

Global architects, Woods Bagot have designed a purpose-built passenger terminal that responds to the local environmental conditions with functionality improvements and the latest developments in terminal design.  Flexibility and future growth were key considerations for the design team. The repurposed terminal will be a modern complex offering a light and welcoming interior and improved user experience.

PHIA Group Chairman, Hon. Cheryl Edwardes said, “this is an opportunity to deliver an airport which makes the Port Hedland community proud and has the ongoing capacity to service the burgeoning mining interests, oil and gas industry and other opportunities in the region.” 

These major upgrades demonstrate the PHIA Group’s commitment to invest in the Port Hedland community’s asset to keep the region ‘open for business’ and ensure the airport maintains its safety and security standards while offering an enhanced customer experience.
