A Proposed Domestic-International Airport

-A long Term Airport Development Proposal the Central Visayas RegionI. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM:
The National Government thru Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) as its lead agency
initiates a development of a new airport with international standards within the Visayas region.
The main objective is to improve domestic and international standards for operational safety and efficiency
and cater increasing demands of tourist arrivals in the country because of the governments successful
tourism program.
The chosen site is within Central Visayas containing an approximate floor area of 2.6million square
meters, has a relatively flat topography. The technical data is presented as follows:

The open space and minimum parking requirements for the Project under the 2004 Revised Implementing
Rules and Regulations (R-IRR) of the 1977 National Building Code of the Philippines (NBCP, otherwise
known as P.D. No.1096), should be exceeded if possible.

a. To design a Domestic and International Airport (a long term infrastructure development

category E, capable of international standard for operational safety and efficiency.
b. To design a transportation facility in a way that can maximize destination travels and boost the
tourism industry in the Philippines:
a. Function and efficiency;
b. Vertical and horizontal circulation patterns;
c. Architectural character and form;
d. Aesthetics and landmark quality;
e. Solar, wind, noise, odor, privacy and view orientations;
f. Security and Safety Features;
g. Full compliances with prevailing laws on Airport Facility design Standards (P.D. No. 957), P.D.
No. 1096, otherwise known as the 1977 National Building Code of the Philippines (NBCP) and
its 2004 Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (R-IRR), effective 01 May 2005, the Fire
Code (P.D. 1185, its repeal version signed into law in December 2008 and its IRR) and the
Accessibility Law (B.P. No. 344 and its IRR); and regulations of CAAP, ICA
h . Natural and artificial ventilation where applicable;
i. Inclusion of utilities Design ( Plumbing/ Electrical/ Acoustics/Mechanical/ Sewage Treatment
MRF, Auxiliary) and
j. The Building exterior shall be along modern lines/ styles.
The approximate 2.6 million Sq.M. project site is a trapezoidal inside lot, located along the fifteenmeter (30.0 m) wide National Road along points 6 and 7.
The site has a relatively flat topography with 2 access roads along east.
Note: refer to satellite data below for site parameter and controls


The following development controls apply to the Project site:
a. zoning classification is Category E (Business and Mercantile);
Should the Building design requirements exceed the development controls and potentials under
items V and VI above, the necessary adjustments have to be made to fully comply with the stated
development controls.
The Project requirements are as follows.
a. Airside Area
1. Runway 3,400 meters x 45 meters wide with 7.5 meters paved shoulders on each side
2. Apron ( Aircraft Parking Area) =can accommodate 7 aircraft inclusive of a General Aviation
Area and Hangar.
3. Two Stub Taxiway from apron to runway 23m wide with paved shoulders on each side
4. Passenger Terminal Building ( 20,000.00 sq.m.)
5. Cargo Terminal Building ( 2,000.00 sq.m.)
6. Administration Building ( 1,500.00 sq.m.)
7. Air Traffic Control Tower
8. Integrated Fire Exit Systems;
9. Crash Fire Rescue Facility
10. Airport Maintenance Building
11. Airport Utilities ( Water Supply, Drainage, Water Treatment, STP, Communication,
Mechanical, Auxiliary).
12. All visual and navigational Aids
13. Power House and standby Generator
b. Landside Area
1. Short Term Parking
2. Long Term Parking
3. Concessions
