Heijmans to realise technical installations of Schiphol’s E and F pier constructions
June 28, 2013
Together in a construction team with Ballast Nedam, Heijmans is to carry out one of the sub-projects for Schiphol’s overall transition to central security. The reason for Schiphol to do this is to improve passenger comfort. The commission includes the design and realisation of an overlay on the E and F piers and the extension of the terminal in the area between the E and F piers for the purpose of a central security filter. Heijmans’ part in the construction team is to realise both the electrical engineering and mechanical systems. The contract sum amounts to approximately € 20 million.
Schiphol Nederland BV selected Heijmans Utiliteit as construction team partner due to its knowledge of and focus on the logistical and operational processes. It is the aim to realise a design that matches Schiphol’s primary process.
The work area comprises 34,700m2. The construction team starts working out the plans in June and construction is expected to start in September. The first completion will take place a year later.
