SCIA User Contest 2020 Flipping Book

177 Fortaleza Airport Project consisted of renovation and expansion works for the 68,600 m² of the TPS (Passenger Terminal Building), including airside system and access roads. The new operator, Fraport AG, chose INTERTECHNE as the responsible for the basic and executive design for all engineering disciplines in a fast-track project. For the works, it was necessary to evaluate the existing four floors structure of the TPS, built in cast-in-place concrete with prestressed beams. The expansion used a part of the abandoned structures of the TPS as a starting point for the new pier construction with two floors. For the main access to the passenger terminal, up to 6 m high, a 300 m long curved ramp was built, using precast concrete and steel elements. When a design must respect an existing structure, it requires an in-depth structural analysis and verification. The BIM workflow with Allplan for modelling and detailing and the plugin for Revit and Tekla played an essential role. The communication with the client, contractor, and the steel structure fabricator allowed us to create a collaborative environment for the assembly studies, resulting in a better design. For our client, meeting the deadline was only possible with our BIM expertise of interaction between CAE and CAD software. The OpenBIM philosophy was essential for the success of this project.
