Dusseldorf Intl. Airport sorts baggage in Herchenbach temp warehouse

Demanding projects is where our 93-year experience comes into play. Just recently, we have proven this with the successful completion of a building at Düsseldorf Intl. Airport (DUS).

Three-bay temporary building for baggage sorting at DUS airport

Dusseldorf Intl. Airport is one of the three major German gateways besides Frankfurt (FRA) and Munich (MUC). Extensive renovation work at the airport created a requirement for an interim baggage sorting hall – on the tarmac of airfield C directly in front and full view of the passenger terminal, and to be installed during active flight operations! A connection tunnel with a conveyor system also had to be put in place to link our building to the actual passenger terminal building.

Key challenges and requirements for the project were:

  • Highly restricted site access
  • Limited transport, set-down and storage facilities on-site
  • Extensive and rigorous safety requirements
  • Intensive health & safety monitoring during all stages of the install
  • Increased fire protection requirements for the building
  • Static and constructional measures which accommodated additional wind loads caused by the exhaust jet of the passing aircraft
  • Insulated construction including heating, various air ducts, smoke extraction system, emergency exits, lighting etc.

Less than 4 Weeks

Comprehensive planning, project management, and a close working with our customer ensured that once the project started nothing could go wrong, challenges would be overcome and all requirements met. As a result, less than four weeks after the construction started, a multi-aisle temporary building with a surface area of more than 2200sqm and an eave height of 6.4m was fully installed on the terminal apron of airfield section C.

If you still need convincing that a Herchenbach temporary building is the solution your business is looking for, then just take a look outside of airfield "Section C" during your next transit through Dusseldorf Intl. Airport. Alternatively, ask us about visiting one of our other 2000+ installations throughout the UK and abroad.
