CLIENT: Dublin Airports Authority (DAA)
SERVICES: Construction design and tender documentation to contract the construction Works
YEAR: 2015 - ongoing
In the process of improving the airport infra-structure at Dublin Airport, DAA, the company that manages the main airports in Ireland (Dublin and Cork), is undertaking an aviation apron and taxi lane pavement rehabilitation project.
The rehabilitation works commenced in March 2015 with a feasibility analysis, and the detailed design of the rehabilitation areas. All of our engineering works are being phased to mitigate their impact upon the airfield operations, given that main works affect the part of the airport that is most used for parking aircraft.
During the study phase, it was decided that the complete renovation of up to 80,000 m2 of the aprons, and taxiways would be undertaken over a period of 4 years. Within the scope of works is the redesign of rigid and flexible pavement, the aerodrome ground lighting and associated circuitry, drainage, and signage and markings. At present, the detailed design and tender process of the first phase has been completed and the works commenced in October 2015.
The work has been carried out by a team of professionals from both the Spanish and UK offices of IDOM, who have commenced the preparation of the design package for 2016 while supervising the construction works of the first phase.
