The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) of the Philippines announced today that it has received seven bids for the design, engineering, and construction of the Clark International Airport new terminal building.
The project aims to construct a new passenger terminal building to accommodate 8 million passengers per annum (MPPA), as well as the construction and installation of all required associated facilities – both landside and airside, to support the operations of the new terminal. The estimated cost of this expansion is PHP12.55 billion (US$248 million).
BCDA received bids from:
The Special Bids and Awards Committee (SBAC) will award the contract to the winning bidder on December 15.
BCDA intend for the new terminal building to break ground on December 20 at the Clark Civil Aviation Complex in Pampanga. Construction is expected to be completed in 24 months or by June 2020.
BCDA is also looking to award a contract for the operations and maintenance of the airport. In November, it received an unsolicited proposal from Gotianun-led Filinvest Development Corp. and the Gokongwei family’s JG Summit Holdings for the delivery of both projects: construction of a new terminal and operations and maintenance of existing facilities.
BCDA have confirmed that it will be announced this month whether the unsolicited proposal has been accepted. Following this announcement, BCDA will publish the invitation to bid for the O&M contract. The aim is to award the O&M contract in March 2018.
Clark International Airport is located on the Clark Special Economic and Freeport Zone in Angeles City, Pampanga Province of Central Luzon Region. This project is part of BCDA's positioning and promotion of Clark as the next investment center in Asia. Alongside the expansion of Clark Airport, BCDA is currently developing the New Clark City - a new metropolis that, according to their website, will be smart, green, disaster-resilient and truly inclusive; the Subic-Clark Cargo Railway and the BGC-NAIA Bus Rapid Transit.
