Powering Hong Kong International Airport (Chek Lap Kok)
A project of global significance, Hong Kong International Airport combines landmark building design with imaginative and efficient space usage. The Terminal Building is the largest covered space in the world and the sheer scale of this 570,000 m2 project demanded specialist support. Working for Rotary International, the key players that have since formed WMS, were called upon to manage critical elements of the electrical installation at this new airport due to the complexity and scale of the project. This entailed the high and low voltage electrical distribution and associated control systems (SCADA) throughout the passenger terminal building and management of elements of the building services across the airport platform.
Access to the all-important switchrooms of the Passenger Terminal Building was delayed by 10 months. Despite this Rotary International completed 15 months work within 5 months to ensure that the key date for power on to the building was achieved. The processes and expertise of the team, now part of WMS, enabled this exceptional achievement. The airport has been winning awards ever since its opening and has achieved a 5 star ranking in independent research organisation, SkyTrax, in the World Airport Rankings.
