Dublin Airport Terminal 1 Extension
Dublin Airport Authority
RPS was appointed by the Dublin Airport Authority to carry out the management, design development and contract administration of the Terminal 1 Extension at Dublin Airport as part of a consortium.
The airside terminal extension is designed to improve passenger circulation space and comfort in the terminal areas and consists of arrivals and departures facilities on two levels plus a mezzanine. There is also ancillary support accommodation including additional check-in areas with baggage facilities, retail and restaurant/bars on the mezzanine level.
The project had an aggressive fast track programme driven by the challenging aspirations of the DAA management to open the new facility in mid 2009 to meet dramatic increases in passenger numbers. In facilitating this process RPS managed a two stage Design - Manage - Construct procurement route specifically adapted to the Irish market conditions. The project was completed ahead of schedule.
