Upgrade F and G gates Schiphol awarded to Strukton Worksphere
Undisrupted operations for Schiphol, safety for passengers and a focus on service provision to passengers characterise the project awarded to Strukton Worksphere.
A special feature of this project is that it will be implemented entirely airside (secure area). This gives it an extra dimension. Furthermore, Strukton Worksphere is responsible for both the architectural work and all the installations (electrical and mechanical engineering). The implementation in an operational environment and integration into the existing buildings demands extensive knowledge and expertise.
Strukton Worksphere's tender distinguished itself by its detailed phasing plan and planning, which will minimise disruption for ongoing operations. When drawing up this plan, attention for the passengers and retail and hospitality facilities was also a prime focus. For this, Strukton Worksphere drew on its experience in renovating The Hague Central Station, among others. Here, too, the shops remained open and tens of thousands of passengers passed through the station during the renovation.
The engineering, planning and logistics for the upgrade of F and G gates will be wholly implemented by Strukton Worksphere in BIM. Refurbishment while the shop is open also means using many prefabricated elements which are being built at external locations. These elements are delivered just in time and installed immediately. The BIM approach makes this complex construction and these complex logistics transparent.
The overlayered G gate delivered by Strukton Worksphere in 2015 and the associated new GH building play an important role in the central security approach at Schiphol. All passengers, also those travelling to destinations outside the Schengen area, are required to pass through central security control. The upgrade of F and G gates aligns seamlessly with this security. The experience and knowledge acquired by Strukton Worksphere in previous projects at the airport will be used for the smooth management of the project. Delivery is planned at the end of the first quarter of 2019.
