Great Structure Beijing Capital International Airport Design

Great Structure Beijing Capital International Airport Design, and This massive expansion project culminated in the opening of terminal 3 in February 2008. This expansion involved the construction of a third runway and another terminal for Beijing airport, and a rail link to the city centre, creating the largest man made structure in the world in terms of area covered. A 300,000m² transportation centre is located at the front of T3. 7,000 car-parking spaces will be available if the two-level underground parking lot is fully employed. The transportation centre will have three lanes for different types of vehicles, airport buses, taxis and private vehicles. The transportation centre will also have a light-rail station on a line that begins at the Dongzhimen. Beijing Airport opened In March 1958, and was the first airport in the People’s Republic of China.One of terminal 3’s highlights is the $240m luggage-transfer system. The luggage system is equipped with yellow carts,

each of which has a code, matching the bar code on every piece of luggage loaded on it, allowing easy and accurate tracking. More than 200 cameras will be used to monitor activities in the luggage area. The airport has 66 air bridges, further complemented with remote parking bays which bring the total of gates to 120 for the terminal alone. Terminal 3 also comes with an additional runway. The arrival of the 2008 Olympic Games marked a very special moment in the history of China. For the first time all the worlds’ eyes and cameras centered on Beijing, the capital of a country that has in recent years shaken off the mantle of communism and embarked on an economic surge that has left the rest of the world breathless. Part of the vision to show Beijing as the truly world class city that it is, included the completion of the world’s biggest airport, Beijing International Airport in time for the opening of the games. The luggage system will allow passengers to check in their luggage at the airport several hours or even a day before their flight. The airport will store them in its luggage system and then load them on the correct aircraft. In addition to food and beverage businesses, there is a 12,600m² domestic retail area, a 10,600m² duty-free-store area and a nearly 7,000m² convenience-service area, which includes banks, business centres, internet services and more. The 2km trip between the two buildings is shortened to two minutes by an intra-terminal train. Beijing Capital International is the main international airport that serves the capital city of Beijing and is located around 20km to the north-east of the city centre. The airport is a primary hub of operations for Air China, which flies to around 120 destinations (excluding cargo). It is also a hub for Hainan Airlines and China southern Airlines. The current airport expansion is largely funded by a €500m ($625m) loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB). The loan is the largest ever granted by the EIB in Asia and the agreement was signed during the eighth China-EU Summit held in September 2005.
