Description

Built in a seismically active area, this new terminal at the Otopeni Airport in Bucharest is a sophisticated combination of a 3,500-ton steel structure and concrete bracing walls. The upper level is covered with 41-metre-span undulating box section girders supported by tubular volutes resting on solid steel columns. The efficiency achieved with precise works prefabrication of the large components permitted completion of the entire structure in less than four months. The design clarity of this white painted structure provides a calm and friendly atmosphere at this busy location. The project earned the ECCS Steel Design award in 2011.
