Joint Selection as winners of the Fuzhou (FOC) Terminal 2 Design and Terminal Area Planning Competition

As a rising national large hub airport, Fuzhou Changle International Airport (FOC) is an important gateway of the “Three Links” Policy Across the Taiwan Straits, as well as a strategic hub of the Maritime Silk Route. The consortium formed by Strategic Planning Service,Inc. (SPS), Central-South Architectural Design Institute (CSADI) and Singapore Changi Airport Planning and Design Group (the team) received the letter of first place award from Fuzhou International Airport Co., Ltd for the Fuzhu FOC Terminal 2 Design and Terminal Area Planning Competition. Together with the China Architecture Design & Research Group (CAG) and CPG Consultants Pte Ltd (CPG) consortium, our project team is honored to be awarded the opportunity to build FOC to as a modern international aviation hub with safety, efficiency, accessibility, integration, and sustainability as key development criteria.

FOC is a large hub airport at the east coast of China with limited space for development between the landside and airside. The project team proposed a series of innovative planning solutions that integrates domestic and international terminal operations, satisfies long-term development objectives, postpones construction of a satellite concourse, and separates curbside for international and domestic curbfronts. These features efficiently meet the client’s objectives for both long-term and short-term development.

  • The integrated design balances the development of Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.  International check- in function whose design was combined with that GTC, designed to be located at the middle of Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, which will make opportunities for the international function integrated design.

  • Main terminal area satisfies short-term and long-term requirements, thereby postpones construction of the satellite hall, lowering capital and operating costs.

  • Locating international check-in in the GTC reduces depth of the terminal, which allows for increased (and more efficient) apron area and airside concourse gate space.

  • Abundant departure curbsides ensure reasonable passenger flow with dual-directions entrance.  Multi-layer and three-dimensional design reserves sufficient space for future traffic development

  • Terminals 1 and 2 are independent with separated domestic and international access. The landside traffic configuration features a “large loop” to provide efficient and flexible landside space.

  • The Economic Zone on the west side of the Taiwan Straights reflects the grand style between the mountains and the sea through the rolling roof of the terminal building.  This symbolizes the transition from the setting sail of the Maritime Silk Route to the aeronautical trade of the new era.

Overall, the winning design achieved the goal of integrating outdoor and indoor space of the terminal while ensuring a highly efficient operational in the near-term and for years to come.
