Building project

For the reorganisation of the passenger traffic, the transition area between Terminal 1 and the access to the gates A shall be extended and remodelled. The extension shall also accommodate additional areas for shops, restaurants and lounges as well as bus gates for far field aircraft positions.


Reinforced concrete structures with flat slabs, shear walls and elevator shafts. In order to obtain a continuous transition between the existing structure and the building extension the joint shall be connected force-fit. The pattern of the vertical local bearing components is arranged for highly flexible floor layout. Further extension possibilities are also considered in the floor plan and the design of the structure.
