  10. 10. Katima Mulilo Airport, Namibia Proposed development of Katima Mulilo Airport Client Ministry of Works & Transportation (in conjunction with Director of Civil Aviation) Date Current Value Services Masterplanning, Feasibility Study Capita Symonds has been appointed by the Ministry in conjunction with the Director of Civil Aviation to undertake a Master planning study that can be used to develop economic and sustainable infrastructure at the airport which supports all the airport stakeholders as well as the region as a whole. The study will highlight that the airport, which is owned by the Namibia Airports Company, is a catalyst for employment and economic growth and that it has a strategic potential in terms of regional development and flood relief. It will also identify the requirement for a cross ministry steering group to assist the long term growth across local businesses, hotels, infrastructure and tourist attractions. In developing the study the team is being guided by Vision 2030 which includes the linking of the country’s regions, airport development and the stimulation of tourism. National and Regional Development Plans in Namibia are also key inputs.8

  12. 12. Kuwait International Airport Landscape Masterplan Client Foster + Partners & Gulf Consult Date Current Value Services Landscape Masterplan, Landscape Design Capita Lovejoy is part of the Foster + Partners / Gulf Consult JV that won a limited international design competition for the new terminal building at Kuwait International Airport. The concept for the design is based on the approach, entrance and arrival sequence using three key Character Zones which includes a predominately native soft landscape and structural landform, passing into transitional zone with both native and non native species, into the final zone at the building frontage of a formal oasis where the vocabulary spans the external / internal arrival spaces. We have developed a sustainable approach to the landscape masterplan, working in partnership with local plant nurseries and specialists (such as the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research) to utilise local desert species of soft planting to minimise the irrigation demand and repair the natural biodiversity of the area. The design also seeks to maximise natural shade opportunities to create a more suitable microclimate for the visitor and to create shading for the infrastructure of the surrounding car park and arrival points.10

Gatwick AirportNorth Terminal Strategic Development Study 2012Client BAADate 2008Services Masterplanning & Facilities PlanningCapita Symonds was appointed to provide BAA with a Strategic MasterPlan and Design Vision for the redevelopment of the North Terminalcomplex at Gatwick Airport.Gatwick Airport is the UK’s second busiest airport and is the world’smost productive single runway operation with over 100 airlines serving250 plus destinations. The North Terminal was expected to grow to24mppa by 2012 from a current design capacity of 14mppa. Thisgrowth was based upon the expansion of the easyJet low cost carrierfleet at Gatwick and the movement of airlines from the South Terminalwhich is operating beyond its design capacity.The scope of the study addressed:• Transport capacity and surface access• Forecourt operations• Multi-storey car parking developments• Landside terminal capacity• Revised check-in model to include CUSS and fast bag drop• Landside and airside retail and commercial opportunities• Conceptual and Preliminary design of a new midfield pier and connection to terminal.The study identified future expansion potential including asset reviewand potential cost of disposal scenario’s and proofing. 13
  16. 16. Jersey Airport 2020 Strategic Masterplan Study Client States of Jersey Date 2006 Services Masterplanning Capita Symonds undertook a study to review the proposed Masterplan and Capital Expenditure (CapEx) programme for the period up to 2020. The airport, owned and operated by the States of Jersey, was suffering a downturn in traffic aligned to tourism which led to an intense analysis of the airport and its requirements. The 2020 plan was instigated to review the potential of the airport in the long term and assist with balancing the requirements to maintain the airport as a strategic island asset, whilst operating on a commercial basis. The master plan study included a review of the current market, existing infrastructure and predicted future demand. Key decision points were the replacement of the main control tower and operations building, originally constructed in 1937, along with a new commercial hanger and the extension and refurbishment of the freight terminal. Long term projects included a new primary radar, new baggage handling system and resurfacing of the runway. The CapEx programme called for a balance of airport assets with the longer term safeguarding of the potential expansion of the airport.14
  17. 17. Bristol AirportMasterplan and Terminal Extension ProgrammeClient Bristol AirportDate 2004 – 2006Services Project ManagementAt the time of the project, Bristol Airport was the fastest growingregional airport in the UK and had ambitious plans to continue togrow. Current demand was at 4 million passengers per annum and thiswas projected to rise to over 6 million by 2007. Hence this would be achallenge for the current terminal building that opened in 2000 andwhich was already operating at design capacity.Capita Symonds was appointed overall Programme Managers at theairport in 2002 and in September 2004 was asked to lead theMasterplan study and the new terminal extension programme.The airport’s expansion programme was a £17m phased developmentproviding additional capacity in:• Terminal Check-in, and Departures• A new Western Pier• Additional aircraft stand capacity• Baggage reclaim• Arrivals capacity. 15
  18. 18. London Luton Airport Phase 1 Development Works Client London Luton Airport Date 1995 Value £80m Services Technical Advice & Contract Administration The Phase 1 re-development at Luton Airport was required to increase the capacity of the Airport from 3.4 to 5 million passengers per annum. Part of the development works involved the construction of a new £40m Terminal Building housing check-in desks and major retail and catering outlets. The works were undertaken under a Public Private Partnership (PPP), between Luton Borough Council and a construction and operating consortium comprising:- Barclays Bank, Airports Group International and Bechtel Enterprises. The consortium formed a new operating company called London Luton Airport Operations Ltd. The first stage of the Capita Symonds commission consisted of a technical due diligence exercise on behalf of the lending bank. This involved examining the design documents, programme, cost plan and form of contract. Capita Symonds used their own internal specialists to cover the following areas: • Geotechnical • Environmental • Structural • Civils airside & landside • Mechanical & electrical services • Programme & cost • Procurement & Contract.16

We have also undertaken a number ofdiscrete project management appointments as well as several R&Dassignments covering hanger design, hanger upgrades, aircraft hardstandings, pavement inspection and evaluation, and specialist aircraftservicing requirements. 21
  24. 24. Carlisle Airport Runway rehabilitation Client Stobart Developments Ltd Date Completed 2010 Value £5m Services Civil Engineering Design, Aircraft Pavement Design, AGL Layout Design, Contract Documentation, Geotechnical Engineering Capita Symonds provided the civil engineering design services for the refurbishment and upgrade of the main runway at Carlisle Airport. The project comprised the design for the complete refurbishment of the existing runway to bring it up to a standard suitable for use by small commercial airliners up to Boeing 737 size, and included significant reprofiling of the existing runway to bring it into compliance with CAA and ICAO criteria. The old runway was in a poor condition, and unusually incorporated a longitudinal drainage channel in the middle of the runway pavement. The design incorporated extensive recycling of the old runway construction and optimisation of levels to minimise the associated earthworks to the runway strip, together with design of new surface water drainage. The wider project also included the design of a major distribution centre (£15m project value) adjacent to the airport, for which Capita Symonds provided all civil and structural engineering design.22
  25. 25. Bristol AirportWestern Airside WalkwayClient Bristol AirportDate 2007 – 2009Value £8mServices Structural & Civil Engineering, Geotechnical EngineeringCapita Symonds delivered design services of a 480m long pedestrianelevated walkway serving nine new Pre Board Zones with futurepotential expansion safeguarded. The project included two elevatedbridge links to the terminal building which meant significantmodification to the existing terminal building. There were two furtherbridge links to deal with access roads from the airport with spans inthe order of 30+m.Due to the complexity of the geology on the site; (verticallyoutcropping limestone with numerous dissolution features) wedeveloped a raft type complex foundation solution. The walkway routealso passes over an existing major services corridor which providesessential feeds to the control tower. In a very constrained site, a designwas developed to divert services from under the walkway whilstmaintaining all the airport operations.Capita Symonds also designed the new access road to the apronaround the rear of the new building: this included dealing with theinfrastructure modifications.The final design was developed to maximise speed of construction andto minimise temporary works, and was carried out over a two monthperiod to allow for tendering and to meet the constructionprogramme. 23
  26. 26. RAF Coningsby Typhoon Maintenance Facility Client Clarke Construction Date Completed 2009 Value £17.5m Services Lead Design Consultants Capita Symonds was the Lead Design Consultant for a new ten-bay Eurofighter Typhoon Maintenance hangar that was delivered in 67 weeks on time and budget. Built on a disused Greenfield site, it enables specialist ‘deep maintenance’ of the aircraft which are serviced by moving through bays spanning the full length of the building in two streams. Each bay has been completed with mechanical, compressed air, hydraulic and electrical services. The hangar covers approximately 11,640sqm and comprises of an annexe housing: • Support workshops • Hardened avionic regional centre for the development and maintenance of electronic equipment used to control the aircraft • Electrical and instrument workshop • Structures workshop, windscreen and canopy bay and office accommodation. The building is complete with stores, messing areas, locker rooms, showers, plant and a 300 space car park. The offices and workshops are designed to provide personnel with excellent working conditions with large windows allowing the hangar to be seen from the offices. The new facility can withstand robust usage with the flexibility to accommodate future expansion. The project achieved a ‘Very Good’ BREEM rating and is also fully DDA compliant.24
  27. 27. Stansted AirportRyanair HangarClient East Midlands Training (Ryanair)Date Completed 2008Value £8mServices Architectural Design & Lead ConsultantAward UK Structural Steel Design Award 2009Ryanairs new hangar at Stansted Airport combines the provision of anairside maintenance hangar with landside staff training facilities, andwas constructed by Kier Eastern as a D&B project. In line withRyanairs business philosophy, the architecture is simple and low costwhilst still providing for robust construction and finishes which willstand up to heavy use. The buildings form was shaped by theminimum size required for the housing of large commercial aircraft,with suitable working clearance for maintenance staff. The buildingenvelope is comprised of cost effective profiled sheet metal compositecladding, in Ryanairs chosen colours.The hangar is capable of accommodating five Boeing 737s, accessedthrough a 125m wide door, which is supposedly the widest clear dooropening in Europe. A cavernous interior was created by incorporating a10m deep, single spanning truss structure, which received a UK StructuralSteel Design Award in 2009. The Award Judge summarised the buildingas a fine example of an optimised long-span structure, at minimumcost, with fast erection. A text book example of the direct approach.Three storey training facilities were provided, with a landside car parkand new road links. These facilities included two Flight SimulatorModules, and an aeroplane fuselage section for cabin crew training.There are also reception areas, offices, training and other ancillary rooms. 25
  28. 28. Dublin Airport Terminal 1 - Check-in Area 14 Client Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) Date 2006 – 2007 Value £10m Services Lead Consultant & Architecture The demand for additional check-in facilities at Dublin Airport led the DAA to identify an unused basement area as a new check-in zone. The concept used innovative lighting techniques and materials normally used externally, such as terracotta panels, to give the impression of natural daylight, as if above ground. The fast-track programme forced us to investigate pre-fabrication and systems that could be installed quickly. This extended to the ceiling/lighting units, check-in desks and wall finishes.26
  29. 29. Terminal 1 - Pier D ConnectionClient Dublin Airport Authority (Formally Aer Rianta)Date 2004 – 2007Services Structural EngineeringCapita Symonds provided the expert structural engineering design forthe new Pier D connector from the existing Terminal 1.Working in conjunction with a local consultant partner, our team ofengineers undertook the detailed design of this unique structure whichcurves through 90 degrees on plan.The structural solution was designed to minimise the impact on theexisting surrounding structure with the cable stayed mast supportsallowing a maximum span potential to be utilised. 27
  30. 30. Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, Concourse C Client BAA Date 2007 Value £305m Services Lead Consultant & Architecture Concourse C was the final phase of the Terminal 5 development at Heathrow Airport. The concept was developed by Richard Rogers in 2004 and was deliberately set to one side with the intention of resuming design development in 2007. Capita Symonds Architecture was engaged by BAA mid 2007 to undertake a peer review of the concept and guide it through scheme design stage. Concourse C is a high quality, cost effective satellite pier. Its wave- form roof and glazed facades are consistent with the design and quality of the other buildings in the T5 family. The 53,000 sqm building consists of four levels above ground, and a basement structure, housing a station for the Tracked Transit System.28
  31. 31. Terminal 3, Pier 6Client BAADate 2005 – 2006Value £100mServices Architecture & Interior DesignBAA’s first new dedicated facility for the A380 aircraft at Pier 6 inTerminal 3 at Heathrow, became fully operational in 2006. Shortlyafter the Pier opened it hosted the inaugural trial visit of the A380 tothe airport.Capita Symonds was appointed to complete the design and detailingof the pier fit-out along with ramp level accommodation.This £100m project involved the demolition of part of the existingPier 6 and provision of a new segregated building incorporatingflexible, open gate lounges to serve four A380 stands.The Pier 6 project utilised our experience from recently completedprojects, such as the Pier 5 Segregation project and our team was ableto work closely with the contractor and suppliers to deliver a first-ratefacility. 29
  32. 32. Terminal 3, Pier 5 Segregation Client BAA Date 2003 – 2005 Value £90m Services Architecture The segregation of arriving and departing passengers at Pier 5 Terminal 3 was the first of its kind at Heathrow following a DfT directive in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the US. The innovative solution included a series of new vertical circulation cores (VCC’s) connecting to a new arrivals level sited on the roof of the existing pier. Corridor sections were pre-assembled off-site at a remote facility and installed during night working periods. We were appointed to provide detailed design for the fit-out of all areas and design fixed links and connectors (also assembled off-site).30
  33. 33. Jersey AirportNorth & South Apron ReconstructionClient Jersey AirportDate July 2006 – June 2007Value £12mServices Civil Engineering Design & Project ManagementCapita Symonds was the Project Manager and Lead Designer for thereconstruction of the North and South Aprons at Jersey Airport.The works consisted of the demolition of the old aircraft parkingaprons on the surrounding of the passenger pier, and the constructionof new concrete pavements designed to accommodate all current andproposed aircraft types likely to use the airport. The old concretepaving was crushed and recycled for use in the new construction, sominimising both the import of fresh aggregates and the off-sitedisposal of waste.Also included was substantial surface water drainage infrastructure,including pollution control measures: a fuel interceptor, aeration pondand reed beds were provided to manage and treat discharges from theairfield. The aeration pond included an innovative lightweight nettedcover to deter birds. Additionally, the project included aeronauticalground lighting, and a new fixed electrical ground power distributionand metering system, with outlets at each of the new stands.Capita Symonds undertook the detailed design of the new aircraftpavements, aeronautical ground lighting, and surface water drainage.Under a separate appointment, Capita Symonds provided ProjectManagement services through to successful completion of the works. 31
  34. 34. Hawler International Airport New Terminal & VIP Terminal Client Kurdish Autonomous Government Date 2003 – 2005 Value £450m Services Architecture & Facilities Planning Capita Symonds was part of a multi disciplinary team appointed to master plan and design in detail a new international airport for the recently established autonomous Kurdish region in Northern Iraq. The master plan defined a new airport with a capacity to handle an initial 1.5mppa rising to a potential 6.5mppa in the future. The new facilities included a 4km runway with all associated airfield infrastructure, a main passenger terminal and a VIP terminal, all ancillary buildings and critically the development of the landside access road to the airport site.

  38. 38. Jersey Airport Runway Reprofiling and Resurfacing Client Jersey Airport Date February 2007 – July 2009 Value £15m Services Project Management & Civil Engineering Capita Symonds was appointed as Project Managers and Designers for the Runway Resurfacing and Associated Works contract at Jersey Airport that was constructed by Volker Fitzpatrick. This was a major strategic project critical for the continued safe operation of the airport. The existing runway surface had exceeded its original design life of 15 years and following a CAA audit in 2007, a number of operational changes were needed to be made to comply with the CAA/ICAO guidance, as well as to replace the running surface to improve drainage and friction characteristics. Work on the runway included: • Replacement of the existing running surface • Geometric changes to the runway profile to reduce the vertical and transverse curves to improve running • Upgrade of the Aeronautical Ground Lighting (AGL) to meet the latest ICAO/CAA guidance • Replacement of the AGL control system • Improvements to the drainage network and outfalls • Strengthening works to the main runway and taxiway links at Delta, Echo and Golf • Cleaning, re-sealing of joints and improvements to surface texture of the concrete at the eastern end of the runway. The works commenced in September 2008 and were completed June 2009 on time and within budget.36

Capita Symondssupported the airport by providing Project and Contract Administrationservices for the scheme design, tendering and construction processes.The project had to be planned and implemented to a very demandingtimescale to suit the airports commercial requirements, meaning thatthe runway works were carried out at night and over the winter period.The electrical works involved the complete re-cabling of the runwayand taxiway lighting, provision of new illuminated signage,modification of the AGL Control System, and the upgrade of theassociated sub-stations. For the first time under a project of this type,CAT III runway lighting was maintained virtually throughout theconstruction period, through careful programming and management ofthe works.Despite the difficulties encountered, the works were successfullycompleted on time and within budget. 37

Airport Expansion Programme Client Bristol Airport Date Completed 2005 Value £8m Services Project Management Bristol Airports existing terminal building was opened in March 2000 with a design capacity of 3 million passengers per year which was projected to rise to over 6 million by 2007. The airports expansion programme was a £17m phased development over four years to provide additional capacity in Check-in, Departure Gates, Airside Passenger Terminal to Aircraft transfer and Baggage Reclaim. The initial phase was a fast-track £8m extension to provide 16 additional Check- in desks, with dedicated state of the art baggage handling and screening facilities, an extended and updated Arrivals Reclaim Hall and associated service upgrades and airside infrastructure. Capita Symonds was appointed overall Project Manager in September 2004 with the daunting task of delivering project completion by May 2005 against an uncertain, but fixed, budget and with only a concept design. Proactive design team management, coupled with the adoption of a truly integrated, risk managed, 2-stage traditional procurement process, but with early contractor involvement and package selection ensured a timely start on site. The project was completed on time and within budget in early May 2005 therefore allowing the airport to commence international flights to US.38
