Dublin Airport Terminal 1 Extension
Dublin Airport Authority
RPS provided structural engineering design and project management services for the €55m extension of Terminal 1 at Dublin Airport.
The 7,500m² airside Terminal 1 Extension was designed to improve passenger circulation space and comfort in the terminal areas consisting of arrivals & departures facilities over two levels, and ancillary support accommodation including additional check-in areas with baggage facilities, retail and restaurant/bars on the mezzanine level.
The structure above ground level is suspended so that the apron area below the building is retained for use by ground handlers and other services. RPS was responsible for structural engineering works for the outline design of the 1,100 tonne structural steel frame supported on 30 concrete column foundations, the engineering for the fritted glazed façade and the utility services diversions and reinstatement for the airside compound. Our structural engineers acted as technical reviewer, contract administrator and site supervisor for the construction phase of the project.
