Model terminal building Rotterdam The Hague Airport

Posted on: 27 June 2022

PELECON HAS BEEN LOYAL TO ROTTERDAM THE HAGUE AIRPORT FOR AROUND 25 YEARS. WE ARE INVOLVED IN VARIOUS CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS AS A STRUCTURAL ENGINEER, FROM SMALL ALTERATIONS SUCH AS THE TERMINAL AND HANGAR BUILDINGS TO MAJOR ALTERATIONS SUCH AS THE NEW DEPARTURE HALL. RECENTLY WE WERE ALSO ALLOWED TO MODEL THE ENTIRE STRUCTURAL PART OF THE EXISTING TERMINAL BUILDING FOR SCHIPHOL, OWNER OF ROTTERDAM THE HAGUE AIRPORT. WE BUILT THIS IN COLLABORATION WITH ROYAL HASKONING DHV, WHICH MODELLED THE STRUCTURAL AND INSTALLATION ENGINEERING PART OF THE JOB.

The existing terminal building was built in the 1960s. In the period up to now, major and minor renovations have been carried out within and next to the terminal building, many of which we have worked out in 2D (autocad) or on sketch over the past 25 years. Our modellers used all this data as a basis for building the new, constructive model. A point cloud was also created, with which we could visually check the constructive model to determine whether the construction model fits! The model is built according to BIM basis ILS 2.0 with LOD300 as the elaboration level.

The building model was recently presented and delivered to the client. The building models made (constructive, architectural and installations) serve as a basis for future designs for internal and external renovations and to support the technical service Rotterdam The Hague Airport.
