Expansion of Changi Airport Terminal 2
The expansion has two piers branching out towards Runway 2, adding 22 new boarding gates. The 12 metre wide concourse of each pier flows into the main building’s transit area, with moving sidewalks channelling the flow of arriving and departing passengers. High ceilings and glass windows enhance the walk through the piers, with dramatic views out to the aircraft.

An expansion of this magnitude is not without its constraints. For instance, aircraft must be visible from the control tower while taxiing to the new gates. Space must be sufficient to accommodate the wing span and movement clearances of the aircraft. Provisions were also first made for a new generation of larger aircraft (NLA) such as the A380.
