New secure access point to the runways
Félix Giorgetti, in a consortium with Karp-Kneip Constructions, built for lux-Airport a new checkpoint as part of the rehabilitation work on the Findel runway.
As part of the rehabilitation work on the Findel runway, a large number of external employees and vehicles, as well as a large volume of materials, have to pass through the highly secure airport site. Indeed, up to 300 people may be working on the site every night and 3,000 tons of asphalt be delivered. In order to be able to inspect everything, lux-Airport commissioned Félix Giorgetti, in a consortium with Karp-Kneip Constructions, to build a new checkpoint.
The new building is designed to check people working on the site, materials and vehicles as they enter or leave the site. It includes four security gates, three for incoming vehicles and one for outgoing ones. A permanent timber building was erected between the security portals where employees of external contractors are checked and where a registration office issues them with daily badges.
There is also a conveyor belt to check personal items and a security gate. The checkpoint also includes a building where goods are checked using a very large X-ray machine, big enough to process whole pallets.
Once the renovation works are complete, the checkpoint will be used for other works that will be carried out on the taxiways (aircraft routes between the taxiway and the tarmac).
