A vast expansion of 伦敦卢顿机场 over three years has achieved ambitious plans for the terminal to play an increasingly important role in the UK’s aviation network. The transformation will increase the airport’s annual capacity by 50% to 18 million passengers by 2020.
Ramboll has a long history of working on the redevelopment of 伦敦卢顿机场 (LLA).
2013 - 2015 Pascall +沃森终端扩展
The £160m redevelopment completed in 2018 was the biggest in the airport’s 80-year history. It involved the upgrade and significant extension of the terminal and its facilities to make passengers’ journeys easier, 更快捷更愉快. 这包括机场的终点站, 交通联系, infrastructure accessibility as well as a new parallel taxiway and work to the aprons.
Ramboll was appointed to provide a full multidisciplinary engineering service to remodel and modernise the airport terminal, 以及后续的扩建和翻新.
拼搏体育官网客户端的设计提供了可持续发展, economic solutions to extend and alter the existing buildings within a live airport environment.
We were responsible for the terminal and landside engineering design up to the tender stage, 其中包括:
- 兴建新B码头, 联系的桥梁, 总线树冠, 行人连接桥及转道旅游中心
- 扩建现有的A码头, 移民厅, 安全领域, 入境大厅及离境休息室
We provided: Structural 工程; Geotechnical 工程; 民事 工程; Building 拼搏体育官网客户端; 声学; CDMC and 火 工程.
Ramboll was commissioned to carry out the detailed design of the following elements:
We provided: Highway design; Geotechnical design; Hostile vehicle mitigation design; Ecology.
Luton Airport needed a new stand area at the East Pier for short and medium haul aircraft. The area allocated for the new stands was very limited and required creative solutions for areas for aircraft parking, 旅客访问, 飞机处理, 地面拼搏体育官网客户端设备和拼搏体育官网客户端道路.
Ramboll undertook the work with simulation of aircraft movement on the limited area to optimize the design of the aircraft stands. Ramboll brought added value to the project by highlighting issues with regards to for instance jet blast 从 the aircraft during parking and other manoeuvring.
The six new aircraft stands were designed for Code C aircraft like A320 or Boeing 737 and for flexible use for Boeing 767-200 aircraft.
We provided: Design of aircraft stands; Simulation of aircraft movement; Simulation of vehicle and passenger movement.
运输 for London (TfL) assigned Ramboll in 2013 to several teams involved in comprehensive project work to provide a solid input and contribution to the ‘Davies Report’. We contributed to different feasibility studies, market studies, and 运输 studies. The final report was published in 2015 by The Airports Commission chaired by Sir Howard Davies to consider how the UK can maintain its status as an international hub for aviation and immediate actions to improve the use of existing runway capacity.
1997 – 1999 New terminal for Foster and Partners and London Luton 操作
The main feature of the development phase in 1998 was a terminal made 从 steel and glass, 具有机翼屋顶和大的内部无柱空间. We helped to design the vast internal column free space to maximise both capacity and visibility.
The emphasis of the building is on steel, both aesthetically and structurally. 建造这个框架用了4000吨钢, 钢制品内外都暴露在外. The walls are of profiled steel with a glazed wall on the landside and a strip of glazing airside.
The curved aerofoil roof and airside under-croft for traffic and loading were designed in response to studies of wind and jet blast.
In 1995 Ramboll (then Gifford) was appointed on the design and construction of a £4m major access road 从 the public highway network to the airport terminal. 2.3km scheme was for a new road to cross the existing taxiway in a cut and cover underpass.
建造地下通道需要滑行道改道, and this required a design for temporary runway pavement construction.
The underpass is a 95m reinforced concrete two span box structure. One span carries the new access road and the other was left for either a second carriageway or a future 轻轨way.
An important part in the award of the contract was the underpass road alignment and landscaping. These were designed sensitively to maximise the visual impact to the approach of the airport.
