T5 team minus Rogers to work on Dublin's T2 - images

  • Comment
Arup and Pascall+Watson will call on the reliable team taking care of Heathrow's T5 scheme - albeit without Richard Rogers - after winning the commission for Dublin Airport's second terminal with these designs.

At a cost of £410 million, the Dublin T2 scheme is another major coup in a long line of airport successes for Arup, with the firm having recently secured projects for new terminals in Beijing, New York, Toronto and Hyderabad in India.

Pascall+Watson will be particularly grateful for securing another major terminal job, as it will allow the practice to sustain its huge workforce. The commercial airport specialist is employing vast numbers of architects working on the immense £4.2 billion project at Heathrow.

The Dublin T2 scheme will include a 75,000m 2terminal adjacent to the existing terminal, as well as a 24,000m 2pier to accommodate up to 19 aircraft.

Arup project director Ian Taylor said: 'The members of the Dublin Airport team have designed airports in a wide range of global locations, managing the difficulties that geography, live airport environments and existing infrastructure can generate.

'This diversity puts the team in a really strong position to help the Dublin Airport Authority deliver this key project for Dublin and Ireland. The end result will be a high quality terminal and pier that Ireland will be proud of.'

The project is due to start on site in the first quarter of 2007, with an anticipated operational date for the terminal and pier of autumn 2009.
