Upgrade and enhancement of the existing Terminal 1 taxi facility.


Total Construction was engaged to upgrade and enhance the existing Terminal 1 (International Arrivals) taxi facility, located at Sydney International Airport.


The works had to be carried out during curfew hours from 11pm to 5am to avoid interruption of normal operations, and the work area had to be cleaned and reinstated to a safe and serviceable condition each morning for use by passengers and taxis. These constraints and limitations necessitated that the work be done in three stages:

Stage 1 involved demolition of existing kerbs, stormwater drainage and services, removal of trees and garden beds, reinstatement of civil works and relocation of existing boom gates and associated communication and electrical works.

Stage 2 required demolition of existing structural steel awning supports, placement of concrete pad footings to take new structural steel awning extensions, and concrete piles to take new light poles. The roof was clad with Colorbond roof cladding and all other structural steel elements were painted with a protective coating to withstand the harsh environment.

Stage 3 then proceeded with installation of the stainless-steel corral, signage, new lighting, paving and landscape works.
