Dublin Airport Passenger Boarding Zone – Innovative use of off-site construction methods

March 5, 2019

The new passenger facility at Dublin airport is now up and running. The scheme is thought to be the largest single span modular scheme in the UK and Ireland.

Appointed by the Principal Contractor, The McAvoy Group, Bluesky acted as project architect on the scheme, working with The McAvoy Group to develop a design solution that could meet the demands of a complicated brief. Bluesky also provided M&E design services and environmental consultancy services.

Speaking about the project Chris Russell, Managing Director of Bluesky Design Services reflects on the project design challenges and how a strong client, project and design team were vital to the success of this project;

‘This project broke ground on the use of offsite construction in such a large clear span building. Combined with the stringent building regulations and airside security considerations, the client, contractor and design team collaborated effectively to deliver this high-quality project. Effective use of BIM is core to how  the construction and architectural teams ensured that all aspects of the design were coordinated efficiently and kept pace with this rapid programme. ‘
