The Abu Dhabi International Airport (ADIA) is undergoing a major programme of expansion under the management of Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC). As part of this expansion ADAC requires 9 Code E Hardstands to be constructed to provide relief aircraft parking until opening of the new Midfield Terminal Building in 2017.
During peak periods, demand for aircraft parking stands is frequently greater than the available number of stands, leading to operational delays.
The 9 Code E Hardstands will be fitted with a storm water drainage system, apron flood lighting, AGL, VDGS, a fuel hydrant system, CCTV, Wi-Fi, marking and signage. There will be staging areas for Ground Support Equipment (GSE) and airside service roads connected to the main airside service road network. The stands are being executed through a Design and Build procurement route and Ramboll has been appointed as the Designer of Record by the D&B contractor - Al Naboodah National Contracting.
Besides providing the core services of aviation layout, pavement design and infrastructural services, Ramboll will also adopt the Jet Fuel Hydrant and electrical & telecom designs prepared by others.
