Cool Arrival for Travellers


The Cairns airport project involved the redevelopment of the two level domestic terminal and new departures area with ticketing and baggage handling facilities and the Qantas lounge. It has been developed in three stages.

The scope of Mechanical Services for the Domestic Terminal Redevelopment includes the additional plant upgrading in the Central Services Building as well as chilled water air conditioning systems located in three separate plant rooms; mechanical ventilation systems; smoke spill systems; air conditioning and ventilation to the “fixed links” to the aeroplanes; and, interface with the Building Management System. All of the equipment used in this job was selected for its ability to improve energy efficiency.

 The tropical weather of far north Queensland presented a challenge for Haden as the channels and ground works for installing the 150m of underground mains to pipe the chilled water to the domestic terminal kept filling up with water and delaying progress. However, the Haden team continued to meet their targ


An added challenge presented to Haden was the security issues of working “airside” and the safety of people movement. Working in conjunction with Hansen Yuncken many tasks were undertaken over night with the terminal re-established to pristine condition for trading the following day.

 Providing air conditioning in the tropics is of major importance and Haden had to ensure that the new air conditioning system was completed to the extent that comfortable conditions were maintained within the terminal, so the existing air conditioning could be made redundant to make way for further works.

Having worked on a number of projects with Hansen Yuncken over the years, including the Prince of Wales Hospital and Sydney Domestic Terminal 2, Haden’s aligned values and commitment to quality and safe work practices have helped them to develop a great rapport with each project team.
