IDAās new airport project, Terminal 2 for Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA,) is gradually taking shape.
First pair of timber arches are erected for the main roof, marking a huge milestone as the companyās first built project in the Philippines. The 15,000 square meter terminal is the brand new terminal for Cebu, catering for its rapid growth of passengers in the near future. The new terminal is dedicated for international passengers.
The project, which began construction in late 2015, looks to bring a new identity to the city in every different way. Distinguished by its wave shaped roof design, the superstructure of the terminal is constructed from glulam (laminated timber,) a natural and sustainable material made from timber. This is the first project of its kind to introduce glulam as the main building structure in South-east Asia.
Hereās a short timelapse video of the construction site.
The project is expected to complete in 2018. For more information about MCIA Terminal 2, please visit project page here.
