City Airport Development Programme - Creating New 'Land' in King George V DockSeptember 2018
Pascall+Watson are working closely with London City Airport to design and deliver the £480m City Airport Development Programme (CADP), which is due for completion in 2022.
Currently on site, the project comprises a large-scale terminal extension, forecourt, eight new aircraft stands, ancillary buildings, a new parallel taxiway and the UK’s first digital Air Traffic Control Tower.
In this video Peter Adams, London City Airport's Chief Asset and Programmes Officer, introduces the two-year piling and decking phase. Over 1,000 steel and concrete piles will be installed into the King George V Dock bed to support the new 75,000m² concrete deck, which will support the new terminal infrastructure and airfield extensions.
Martin Neilan, Pascall+Watson’s Project Director for CADP commented “The airport exists in an exceptionally constrained and complex context, one aspect of which is the water that we have commenced building over. To see this work underway gives a sense of reality and excitement to the intricate process the airport and ourselves have been through in finding the optimum solutions to this major development”
