New check-in concourse and automated baggage x-ray handling building facilitating major expansion in passenger numbers. A large open plan check-in hall was inserted between surrounding airport buildings with limited construction access and on a heavily serviced site area.
Extensive service diversions were implemented in a carefully planned sequence to ensure that normal operations continued unaffected.
Unusual ground conditions (organic soils extending to depth) were accommodated using a piled foundation approach incorporating an impermeable gas barrier layer and natural venting to atmosphere.
A free-standing entrance canopy, extending along the full building frontage, finished with curved leading edges provides covered external waiting accommodating set down of passengers.
