London City Airport Development Programme - Creating New 'Land' in King George V Dock
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”
