In every project we face new challenges and opportunities. But, with the right network, tools, and expert skills, no mission is impossible. Having the freedom to work independently and together with strong partners, we add unsurpassed value to what the industry’s pipeline still holds in store.
A sound technical development concept is an integral part of the overall planning process. On the one hand, the technical concept must be based on the strategic concept, the market demand and the forecasts made; on the other hand, much will depend on its financial feasibility. Besides that, the technical requirements must match the chosen development strategy.
The intended qualitative/strategic positioning of the airport will determine the level of the future quality standards. In addition, the technical development concept includes a calculation of the capacities required for the various airport functions as well as the resulting capital expenditure programme (functional programme and CAPEX).
The quality standards for the design of the master plan are determined in part by the IATA calculation model and by applying international benchmarks of other airports. These quality standards are a central aspect of the calculation model. It incorporates this data to determine future space requirements (space allocation programme).
