The construction of Perth Airport’s Terminal 1 Level 3 Lounge and Vertical Transportation project, aimed to convert the Level 3 viewing platform into a private lounge, jointly operated by Perth Airport Pty Ltd (PAPL) and Aspire Lounges.
Byte Construct has shown continued success while working at the airport over the past 10+ years. Byte is a respected and trusted contractor through this success, which is among the reasons Perth Airport Pty Ltd contracted Byte Construct to undertake the base-build works and lift shaft installation.
The base-build scope of works included external glazing façade and cladding removal/replacement, internal strip-out, mechanical plant room reconfiguration and upgrade, Level 3 construction of new Core 54 stairwell and glazing, and installation of a new tilt-up panel vertical transport (lift) shaft, and internal lift car installation.
The existing viewing platform’s strip-out included removing toilets, external glazing, cladding, discontinued Aircraft Control Centre, and demolition of the existing structure. Externally, the tilt panel lift shaft construction required thorough planning due to the proximity to aircraft and disruption to flights.
