The CI$55 Million dollar Owen Roberts International Airport Expansion and Renovation Project is now under construction and being carried out in two main phases that includes the full renovation and expansion of the existing facility.
The first phase, on the west end of the terminal, commenced in October 2015, which included the construction of an area in preparation of a new outgoing baggage system with an area for an in-line baggage screening room, airline administrative office space, a bag pick-up area and a roof top mechanical room.
The second phase consists of easterly and westerly expansions and renovations to the existing interior of the terminal building. All work in Phase 2 will be carried out in several sub-phases to enable the terminal to remain fully functional, safe and secure throughout the construction period. Phase 2 works commenced in September 2016 and is scheduled to be completed in 2018. Current construction has started with the expansion of the Check-In Hall on the west end that ties in with the Phase 1 works, construction of the new immigration and baggage claim area to the east, an additional roof top mechanical room, the installation and commissioning of the new baggage handling system (inbound and outbound) and enabling works for the start of construction on the second floor administrative areas. These works will be completed by 2017. Construction will continue with the renovation of the old Departure Hall, an enlarged Security Screening Checkpoint, new immigration administrative area and new retail area. Construction of new arches, landside canopy and additional internal renovations will complete the project.
