CJK reached practical completion on the Hold Baggage Screening (HBS) Project at Dublin Airport for our client, daa.
This has been one of the most complex and innovative long-term projects that CJK has ever undertaken. The project involved upgrading the Standard 2 HBS equipment in Terminal 1 to Standard 3 HBS, in line with EU regulations, while future-proofing the system for up to 40 million passengers per annum at Dublin Airport.
The Baggage Handling System in Terminal 1 has evolved over the years to meet growing demand and changing regulations, making it a complex system with limited ability to modify. However, with the installation of the Standard 3 HBS, we were able to overcome the challenges posed by the limited physical space and limited vertical load in Terminal 1.
CJK’s construction and design input involved a phased replacement of the majority of the BHS and HBS equipment, including modifications to the existing conveyor system and the control system, to accommodate the new screening technology. Additionally, a multi-storey building expansion was constructed to accommodate baggage makeup, HBS screening and baggage processing, offices, accommodation, screening rooms, and a centralised screening and baggage control room for Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
CJK were responsible for all mechanical and electrical service installations in Terminal 1 6&8 Bay area, 14 Bay Baggage Halls and the new HBS Control (BCB) Building. The mechanical scope included the installation of new radiant heating panels, LPHW warm air curtains, modifications to existing MTHW pipework, and a demand-responsive extract ventilation system. Other works included the installation of roof mounted heat pumps, installation ventilation with AHUs and duct-mounted in-line fans, air conditioning with VRF and split-type DX units, water services with storage tanks and boosted installation, soils and wastes/rainwater pipework in HDPE, fire safety measures such as extinguishers and a suppression system, and a new Cylon BMS installation.
We are proud to have been a part of Terminal 1’s development and grateful for the opportunity to work with Dublin Airport and the daa. Our team’s dedication and hard work have resulted in a successful project completion. We look forward to continuing our work with Dublin Airport and providing innovative solutions to meet the evolving needs of the aviation industry.
