King Island Airport Terminal Expansion

L + R Airport Consulting provided specialist airport planning and operational advice to the project architect Mode Design for the detailed design of the King Island Airport Terminal Expansion.

We provided detailed background information and expertise with respect to the regional airport terminal design considerations. This included an analysis of similarly sized airports, the principal drivers of passenger terminal facility requirements, functional area space requirements, consideration of the inter-relationship between different processes, and the effect of these factors on efficient spatial configurations. 

The concepts included an assessment of the ability of the expanded terminal to accommodate security screening of passengers and baggage in the future, the likelihood of this eventually occurring with respect to the established design parameters, and the identification of feasible screening point arrangements. 

We provided an assessment of specific functional issues and space requirements for the key elements of check-in, baggage make-up, passenger waiting lounge, baggage collection and arrivals to inform sketch design options. We then undertook a review of designs during the development phase to ensure the detailed design documentation addressed these requirements in an appropriate way considering the project constraints including program and budget. 

In addition to L + R Airport Consulting’s specialist airport terminal planning expertise, L + R also provided civil and structural engineering services to the design team.
