To increase the efficiency of the Dublin Airport, the Dublin Airport Authority embarked on one of Dublin’s largest construction projects: Terminal 2. This 75,000 m² project consists of a 3-level terminal building, a boarding pier, 19 aircraft stands, 40 retail outlets, and can accommodate up to 15 million passengers per year.
Our mandate was to deliver a 13,500 m², backpainted glass wall lining system consisting of 16,500 glass panels, aesthetic and functional cladding for more than 225 columns, a one-way vision glass wall cladding developed especially for the security control area in addition to a suspended a service boom of 93 metres in length by 18 metres in width to enhance airport security and a number of other security-related solutions. We had a tight deadline of just 11 months to deliver all of these solutions in addition to other deliverables.
Although the scope of the project gradually increased as time progressed, we delivered each and every requirement to the agreed specification in time for the grand opening. We also managed to successfully reduce the glass rollerwave to levels well below the industry norm.
