Taoyuan airport unveils partial refurbishment
2012/05/21 19:52:33



Taipei, May 21 (CNA) Arriving passengers at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Terminal on early Monday walked into a newly renovated arrivals hall with sunlight streaming through the insulating glass ceiling.

The new facilities include the north wing of the arrivals hall, a tourism information counter and a glass elevator that takes passengers to a bus terminal at ground level.

The terminal also boasts newly installed counters for the Tourism Bureau, the Council of Labor Affairs, telecommunications companies, car rental services and hotel reservations.

Gone are the somber temporary lighting and the panels separating the areas under construction from airport users.

The new facilities are part of a refurbishment and expansion project for the airport, the country's main gateway. Completion of the project is scheduled for the end of this year.

The Chinese-language United Daily News reported, however, that some direction signs in the arrivals hall are not clear enough and that a wall separating a construction area by an escalator connecting the hall and the bus terminal reduces the space available for the public.

One Taiwanese traveler surnamed Cheng, who returned from Germany that day, said the terminal felt more spacious and that there was a smell of fresh paint in the air, unlike the cramped feeling of the old terminal facilities, the newspaper said.

Cheng said the refurbished terminal feels more like an airport of international caliber, the newspaper said.

It takes a Japanese architect to build anything half decent in taiwan, of course. A major improvement, although, like the Taiwan high speed rail, not one the Taiwanese can wholeheartedly take credit for

I can give credit for high speed rail station designs, for example I quite like Hsinchu High Speed Rail station.

New airport food court to open in September
By Shelley Shan / Staff reporter

Photo: Huang Hsu-lei, Taipei TimesA new food court at Terminal 1 of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport will open on Sept. 30, the state-run Taoyuan International Airport Corp (TIAC) said yesterday.

Renovations at Terminal 1, which began in 2009, are scheduled to be completed this year. The new food court is located at the terminal’s level-one basement (B1).

TIAC senior vice president Wen Yung-sung (溫永松) said the company had outsourced operations of the food court to Hsin Tung Yang Corp, which won the contract earlier this month.

Wen said the contractor planned to attract investment from international food chains, as well as Taiwanese restaurants.

Aside from McDonald’s and Tokyo Prince Ramen, Hairei Meatball of Hsinchu City and Jimmy’s Kitchen in Taipei will also have a presence at the terminal’s food court.

Wen said Taiwanese baker Wu Pao-chun (吳寶春), who won the Bakery Master title at the 2010 Bakery World Cup in Paris, would also have an outlet at the airport.

The quality of food at the nation’s main airport came under scrutiny following a complaint by Taiwanese gourmet Han Liang-lu (韓良露), who said that the food at the airport was expensive and tasted awful.

Wen said the company hoped the food quality at the airport could soon match that at Hong Kong International Airport.

According to TIAC, the renovation project has expanded the area of Terminal 1 by approximately 13,000m2.

Starting on Sunday, the company will gradually open different areas to the public.

ok i didn't mean to imply that not a single decent architect existed. but it is a wonder even a couple of them get commissioned to build anything of significance (public works) and even then, they pale in comparison to foreign talent.

for its level of economic development, taiwan feels about 15 years behind culturally.

The cross-strait meeting is coming soon. The authority will discuss open transit permission for all chinese visitors, which they don't need "Entry Permit of Mainland Residents to the Taiwan Area" booklet to transit via Taoyuan International Airport. Currently they need it.

It is due to special political environment between Tawian and China as passport don't recognise by either side.

桃機第3航廈今年完成總規畫 (聯合報)

更新日期:2012-06-21 23:42:12 記者:何定照

桃園機場總經理林鵬良今天表示,第3航廈今年將找總顧問完成總規畫,6年後建成可容納4300萬人,是第1、2航廈合計總人數的1.3倍,可望成為最佳門面。

林鵬良說,桃園機場33年前建成,是依預估的未來需求打造,如今早已不敷使用,第3航廈興建迫在眉睫。

林鵬良說,第3航廈興建計畫分3階段,首先是今年將完成的總規畫,將讓3航廈和1、2航廈相融合;第2階段是設計顧問,即徵求國際競圖,預計明年完成;第3階段是2014年施工,預計2018年完工。

This year company is going to hire contractor for General Consultancy Services. General Consultancy Services will finalise the overall detail of the terminal 3 area development (to say what are facilities, building, systems, concepts of airport terminal should include the final design). Then, the company will use this detailed plan to launch international competition for terminal 3 or entire terminal 3 development.

So we will going to have three stages for terminal 3 area development
1. General Consultancy Services develop and set up overall concept of the development.
2. International design competition will regard to this overall plan
3. Development construction

The budget is 50 billion NT dollars at the moment.

桃機三航廈建毛胚屋 省百億


【中央社╱台北18日電】


2012.07.18 10:10 am


桃園國際機場第三航廈總顧問將在下週招標。桃園機場公司節省經費,採毛胚屋做法,內部除公共空間外,其他由承租業者裝修,原本新台幣600億元的興建經費,下修到500億元。

桃機公司說,根據興建第一及第二航廈的經驗,航廈完工後,將營業空間租給航空公司、免稅店、一般商店時,業者都會打掉原有的裝潢設施,重新設計。

桃機公司規畫第三航廈時,原本也打算沿用以往方式,整個航廈內外裝修,都由機場公司一手包辦,經費估計要600億元。

桃機公司表示,後來審查第三航廈計畫時,發現第一及第二航廈的做法太浪費,決定航廈內部除公共空間外,未來出租營業的空間,採取毛胚屋的做法,不再另設計裝潢,交由承租業者負責。

交通部已核定桃園機場第三航廈興建案,桃機公司將興建經費下修100億元,總顧問下週招標,總顧問將協助桃機公司辦理第三航廈綜合規劃、建設計畫、環境影響評估、基本設計、施工監造。

桃機公司規畫,第三航廈位於第二航廈西側,將採複合式經營,旅客在機場不再只是匆匆進出,還可選擇在機場內娛樂、消費、參加會議,甚至住宿。

第三航廈規模比第一、二航廈大,設計年客運量是約4300萬人次,高於現在第一、第二航廈共約3000萬人次,預計2018年啟用。

交通部預估,2020年桃園機場客運量為4500萬人次,如果不建第三航廈,現有兩座航廈將不敷使用;而2030年桃園機場客運量預估為5800萬人次,3座航廈有足夠的容量可因應。

The tendering for general consultant contract will start next week. General consultant will help airport company to implement terminal 3 proposal, construction plan, environmental impact assessment, conceptual design and construction supervision.

The budget reduce from 60 billion to 50 billion. Airport company decide that construction will not include all interiors for service area ( shops, restaurants, lounge rooms, and other service facilities). The interior will be done by tenders using their own design. In the past experience, Taoyuan airport finished all interior include service area and it has been find that it is waste of money as tenders bring their own interior design.

looks great!! maybe after they design and build a super big terminal 3 they can turn terminal 1 into a nice mall and entertainment complex. the design for terminal 3 should match terminal 1 or compliment it and they should tear down terminal 2 so there's one big airport terminal and a supplemental entertainment/mall next to it. then you wont have 3 distinct terminal designs that dont match together.

i have higher standards than some

to be fair, it's not all bad. i honestly think i'd do a better job one some parts of the design though. and i'm a layman. take your last pic for example. the entire left half of your picture looks stupid. those horizontal beams jutting out from the wall. i know they're structural elements of the original building but c'mon, what utter lack of imagination to simply clad them in white and not address their imposing lack of purpose - they are a visual nuisance. and the patterned cladding on the wall extending down the columns to the left just looks busy and cheap. yeah, i see an attempt to tie in a design motif, but come on - this is childs-play.

the striped columns in williamchung's pics look like something out of a shinkong mitsukoshi lobby from 1994 and would have been better left as polished concrete or minimalistic white cladding.

but again, the overall result is acceptable considering taiwan is not world class like europe/japan. you're correct, taiwan will always be overlooked as the land of mediocrity; greatness is overrated anyways.
