CECI in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

In 2005, the government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines decided to build a new international airport at Argyle located at the eastern side of St. Vincent (island) on about 290 acres of land, with a paved runway having a length of 2,743 meters and width of 45 meters. The airport is designed to accommodate jets as large as Boeing 747-400s with direct flights planned between the airport and destinations in North, Central and South America as well as Europe. With additional funding for the project coming from a number of countries, including the Republic of China on Taiwan, CECI was awarded the bid for providing consulting services of the airport's landside facilities.

With construction of the terminal beginning in early 2011, the terminal building will have three floors, with 139 thousand square feet of floor space and is designed to accommodate approximately 1.4 million passengers per year, which is more than 5 times the number of passengers passing through the current airport in operation. At the expected rate of growth of passengers, the Argyle International Airport terminal building is expected to meet the country’s needs for the next 20 years.

Besides the main terminal building, other types of landside facilities to be built include the control tower, fire station, cargo terminal building, access and circulation roads, parking lots, etc.
