Southern Grampians Shire Council engaged Noxon Giffen for the upgrade and expansion of Hamiltonā€™s existing terminal building and precinct.
The project consists of three stages, with the first stage focussing on the refurbishment of the existing terminal building. Within the second stage, a carefully considered expansion strategy was developed for a new office facility, departures and arrivals terminal. A masterplan was designed for the third stage, which stimulates economic activity through the development of an additional office facility and pilot training facility.
Recognising the importance of regional airports as a gateway to the local community and region, the design uses a balance of traditional brick and contemporary translucent panels and glazing. As a result, a significant sense of arrival and departure is created, while enhancing and complementing the existing building in a way which respects the original building as much as possible.
