We developed a strategy for the Airport’s growth that is easily adapted in response to changes in demand. We addressed the immediate operational and retail /commercial issues providing a highly flexible space that accommodates future changes of requirements and new technologies. A short-term asset improvement programme for Terminal 1 was incorporated to extend its design life at minimal cost until replacement facilities are constructed in Terminal 2.
Lean design approach
We proposed Terminal 2 be expanded to the east and west in incremental phases providing additional floor area. By replacing the façade and roof a new iconic terminal appearance will be created. A lean approach to design was applied. Only what is essentially needed is provided creating a stripped-back aesthetic of exposed surfaces and self-finished materials requiring each material and assembly to perform multiple functions.
As the airport grows it will become a hub for intermodal connectivity. We set out proposals for the terminal expansion to be built on land to the west of Terminal 2 placing the metro station and bus interchange at the heart of the growth.
Initial masterplan proposals were developed including a cargo/logistics terminal, airport city and wider aerotropolis commercial development on airport land, creating new non-aeronautical revenue streams.
We introduced systems to reduce energy, water consumption and costs, meeting environmental requirements. A decentralised ventilation system reduces duct runs combined with heat recovery systems, solar shading, photovoltaics panels and environmental controls.
