A Polish-Spanish consortium has won the competition for the new New Lublin International Airport in Poland. The program foresees a massive airport renovation and expansion with an administrative building, control tower, and a 17,345 m2 terminal.
The winning consortium consists of SENER Ingeniería y Sistemas, Spain (technical coordination, airport master plan, functional project of terminal, calculation of buildings area and number of parking spots), ARE, Poland (architectural design of the terminal building, flight control tower, administration building and airport maintenance facility building, graphical presentation), SENER, Poland (parking and airport circulation system, coordination of work), and Polconsult, Poland (runway infrastructure).
From the description of the winning project: “We placed the first phase of airport buildings along the planned runway lane to create a stripe of buildings. On the perpendicular axis of the stripe we placed a central component of the design - Terminal building. The railway station, connecting the terminal with the city, was designed as a part of the terminal itself with the access situated on the extension of the lateral axis. Such an arrangement provided a logical division of circulation around the terminal to the arrival and departure zones with the railway placed in between. It also allowed distribution of all required functions on a single level.”
“Parallel situation of buildings and the runway allows the future expansion of the terminal and the airport itself. Road access to the Terminal is provided with two one-way road junctions serving separately the arrival and departure zones.”
“The main high capacity building is the terminal building. It was designed as a three-wing hall containing both functional zones: the airside zone, enclosing luggage sorting plant, waiting rooms and luggage claim hall with all accompanying rooms as well as the landside zone enclosing check-ins, railway station and commercial facilities like airline offices and gastronomy etc.
Sizes and parameters for the Terminal were assumed in accordance with IATA guidelines and counted for the capacity of 1 million passengers for the first stage and 3,2 million passengers terminally.”
