Piarco International Airport New Terminal Facility

In 1998, the Government of Trinidad and Tobago embarked upon a comprehensive upgrade of the country's main airport facility at Piarco, Trinidad. Central to this redevelopment was the construction of a new terminal building incorporating all! the facilities required to provide an efficient, comfortable and enjoyable environment synonymous with a modem 21st century airport. Given the complexity of the structure and the compressed construction period, the contract for the structural steel frame and the floor and roof decking was let to Yorke Structures Limited. Working to exacting international standards, the company detailed, fabricated and erected in excess of three thousand tonnes of steelwork and fifty thousand square metres of composite floor decking and acoustic roof decking. The project was completed within eleven months.

As the terminal building approached completion, interest from vendors and concessionaires was so great that the government took up the option to extend the central concourse area by an additional floor as provided for in the original design. Yorke Structures Limited subsequently extended the original structure and also constructed the covered canopy for the main approach driveway.
