On 25 September TIAC held 3 Request for Information (RFI) seminars for the design of the Terminal 3 area. These seminars gathered the attendance of more than 300 airport designer representatives from 13 countries, and successfully collected much feedback from them.

David Fei, TIAC President & CEO, expressed in his opening address that the Terminal 3 Area Project is the flagship of the Taoyuan Aerotropolis Plan; the RFI seminars are held to absorb the invaluable opinions of global architects experienced in designing hub airports in the world, thus making the approaching drawing competition, the overall T3 area project, and TTIA better in the future. Concepts of smart and green airport, together with art and culture ingredients, will also be blended in the project to give passengers a new airport experience.

Fei pointed out that the design of Terminal 3 has to solve long term symptoms of T1 and T2, such as traffic congestion in the airport park, passenger jams at peak hours in the departure halls, ill design of passenger routes inside the terminals, and the dispersion of commercial areas. The future T3 will be operated to provide services of international standards and also to take care of the commercial development; it will be a humane airport with smooth traffic flow, an integrated Ground Transportation Centre (GTC), ample parking lots, a centralized commercial plaza, spacious departure hall and baggage claim area, convenient transfer area, and multi-function building with commercial potentials. T3 will also be connected with T2 to facilitate rapid passenger movement and baggage delivery. In the airside, to enhance the operation efficiency and safety, 16 code F aprons, 5 code C aprons, and a new dual direction taxiway will be constructed to coordinate with the overhauled runway aimed for completion in 2015.

Fei also stressed that the construction of the T3 area, in addition to cater for the increasing passenger and cargo volumes, intends also to make TTIA a tourist attraction, an exhibition window of MIT products, and even an international conference center that increases flows of passengers, commodities, and cash, therefore stimulating the economic growth of the Taoyuan Aerotropolis.

According to the schedule, TIAC will make contract with the winning airport designer in the second quarter of 2015. The construction will be proceeded and completed facilities opened in stages to serve the growing number of passengers.

The RFI held on 25 September attracted the participation of almost 70 international and more than 20 domestic architects and engineering consultants. In total more than 300 representatives from U.S., Canada, U.K., France, Holland, Spain, Germany, Japan, Korea, Singapore, H.K., and India attended the seminars, in which TIAC and the General Consultant explained the planning of this project, its design schedule, and tendering approach of the WC taxiway removal and dual line engineering. Q&A and feedback questionnaires were also prepared to collect professional opinions for the tinkering of the design tender.
