Expansion of baggage conveyor system at Hamburg Airport

January 2019. Due to the anticipated growth in passenger numbers, the baggage conveyor system at Hamburg Airport is to be expanded during the course of a series of measures including the extension and modernization of the terminal buildings and the creation of new gates. The aim of the expansion is to improve the necessary infrastructural baggage capacities in order to meet future demand. Alongside converting existing building facilities, the construction work includes expansion of the baggage conveyor line and baggage claim area, as well as construction of a new baggage storage facility. The new building will also house a central baggage check-in area for cruise passengers, which will transfer baggage that is already checked in for cruise ships to the baggage conveyor system, thereby saving time and resources. In this project, LOGO is supporting Hamburg Airport in the requirements management of the forthcoming construction measures developed in the master plan.

LOGO lands in Berlin

September 2018. We are delighted to announce the opening of our new office in the German capital. Our address is Mittelstraße 5 (Airport Center Schönefeld), 12529 Berlin.

Berlin Brandenburg Airport plans new terminal

August 2018. The opening of the new airport in the German capital has already been postponed several times – but at the same time, air traffic to and from Berlin has continued to grow, meaning that the new building will reach its capacity soon after opening. Therefore, the BER Master Plan includes various expansion measures in order to cope with the passenger numbers forecast by 2040. The largest project, an additional passenger terminal (named “Terminal 3”), is to be erected immediately opposite Terminal 1 and is set to open its doors in 2025. This building is to increase the flexibility of the airport infrastructure, shorten routes for passengers and incrementally cover the required passenger capacities (source: BER Master Plan 2040, November 2017). LOGO is now supporting the airport operator in the project management of the preparatory planning phases and is drawing up the functional requirements of the building infrastructure in cooperation with the various user groups.

Preparatory measures for expansion of the Southern Passenger Pier at Hamburg Airport

June 2018. The demolition of the old air cargo facilities is just one of several preparatory measures that Hamburg Airport is conducting for adding six new gates with passenger boarding bridges at the back of the Southern Passenger Pier. To compensate for the temporary loss of gates due to the conversion work from early 2019, bus gates are being set up at the lower level, thus keeping disruption for passengers to a minimum during this time. When finished, the Pier expansion will enable passengers to board their flights quicker and more conveniently, while also enhancing their stay at the airport thanks to new service and shopping offerings.

General renovation of runway gets underway at Cologne Bonn Airport

April 2018. The necessary overhaul of Cologne Bonn Airport’s longest runway has begun. In order to keep the disruption to passenger and cargo transportation to a minimum, the construction work is limited to weekends up to fall 2018. As such, the runway will still be available for aircraft during the week. On behalf of Cologne Bonn Airport, LOGO is training several hundred operative employees with regard to the special features of this construction measure. We inform staff of the specific safety requirements when working close to aircraft that are taking off and landing, as well as on subjects relating to environmental protection.

Membership of DVP

November 2017. LOGO InfraConsult has been a member of the German association of construction project managers, the DVP, since November. The association was founded in 1984 with the objective of expanding and improving specialist knowledge in this field, making the results accessible to a specialist audience and fostering collaboration between partners in construction projects through its members.

What are the requirements for state-of-the-art airport buildings?

October 2017. In coordination with the technical department of Hamburg Airport, LOGO is compiling user requirements for several construction projects. The space and function programs for the temporary terminal building of the shuttle gates and the expansion of the South Pier terminal building including the neighboring terminal areas and the noise protection wall are complete, so planning and implementation of these challenging construction projects can now begin. In compiling the construction requirements, particular care was given to the needs of the increasing number of handicapped and elderly passengers in combination with a growing share of low-cost traffic.

BER South runway is up and running

July 2017. The structural reinforcement and expansion work of the shared aviation areas of Berlin Schönefeld (SXF) and Berlin Brandenburg (BER) has begun. The goal of these activities is to ensure the parallel operation of both airports in future. Due to the construction work in the immediate security area of the existing North runway (07L/25R), this runway had to be shut down temporarily. Parts of the BER infrastructure, in particular the South runway (07R/25L) and the south taxiways are used temporarily to ensure consistent flight operations during the construction phase. LOGO InfraConsult supports the operative implementation of these measures. We use operational project and implementation management to handle the issues in flight operation successfully. After all, we want all passengers to take off for their summer vacation on schedule and land safely, despite the many construction sites on the airport apron.

Hamburg Airport expands its capacities

February 2017. Hamburg, the “pearl on the Elbe river”, is becoming increasingly popular as a flight destination for tourists. The projected increase in passenger numbers makes it necessary to expand and modernize the terminal buildings and add additional gates. LOGO will be supporting the operator of Hamburg Airport in the demand and requirements management of the pending construction measures, which were developed in the master plan. As experts in this field, we will consolidate the functional planning basis, make it available to all parties involved in the project and support its implementation later on.

Numerous projects – maximum transparency

January 2017. Frankfurt Airport, or the “city within the city” as Germany’s largest airport is often referred to, is undergoing constant change. New technologies, additional service offers and changing business strategies require constant maintenance and modernization of the infrastructure. LOGO supports the airport operator in developing an effective reporting system in order to create as much transparency as possible regarding ongoing and upcoming construction activities.

Successful Completion of the interim redevelopment of the runway at Cologne-Bonn Intl. Airport

October 2016. By bringing the runway touch-down zone lights into operation, the structural renovation of main runway 14L/32R came to an end. Damages of the asphalt’s top layer were repaired across the runways over the last few months by using a thin bituminous coating. Despite the indispensable interim renovation, the operational limitations for the passenger and cargo traffic were minimized, which was possible due to intelligent and flexible managing measures as well as the ideal communication between all project participants. 

LOGO Event 2016

September 2016. The first LOGO event at the House of Logistic and Mobility (HOLM) started with the lecture on the issue of "Passenger Experience - a key success factor for your Airport”. Our network partner and ACI specialist Torsten Hentschel from Hamburg offered new insights into future service trends. Prior to an after-work celebration, we discussed the topic with our business partners and other stakeholders. It was a nice evening, which we will surely repeat another time.

New master-planning of the Berlin-Schoenefeld Airport’s operation

April 2016Due to the delayed initial operation of the German capital‘s new airport, all planned measures concerning the current operating Berlin Schoenefeld Airport, located right next to BER, have to be coordinated again. This involves i.a. the transition to a new role as a government airport. Therefore, the corresponding masterplan regarding the flight operations and permissions has to be put in terms and has to be implemented. LOGO will assist the Berlin-Brandenburg Airport with its coordination of the project‘s operational concerns and undertake the project management of any necessary adjustments.

New terminal building comprises 7.000 rooms

March 2016There is hardly a more complex building task than planning a new terminal, in which different processes have to be portrayed with an assured future. Therefore, it is crucial for each owner to keep track of a project‘s different requirements and their implementation. Because of the high complexity, a multitude of responsible plan- and decision-makers as well as a large number of interfaces to other projects, the application of BIM (Building Information Modelling) was discarded. Nevertheless a maximum of transparency regarding the planning progress should be guaranteed. The order to update the specifications for the digital room book, which controls the realization of all functional, structural and technical requirements of more than 7.000 rooms, was assigned to LOGO.

Reconstruction of the runway system of Cologne-Bonn Airport

February 2016Equally to freeways, the asphalt surface of runways can be worn out by time. In consequence, damages that are caused by the weather are likely to occur. Before completely renovating the runway for this reason, an interim renovation of the 3.815m long and 60 m wide runway 14L/32R will take place. LOGO coordinates all adjustments of the operation process during the construction project, with the aim to reduce the air traffic on that important turnstile to a minimum despite the complex redevelopment. 

Planning new Terminal 3 on a big scale

December 2015. The draft plan and design of Frankfurt’s third passenger terminal will be finished and put in concrete terms, soon. The plan documents have to be examined functionally and released, to initiate the next planning stage and to be able to begin with the constructions works in time. LOGO will be supporting Fraport’s team of building owners with its know-how and will be leading the technical coordination with the entire user of the building. Moreover, LOGO will provide support for the technical realization of the special facilities, which are necessary to operate an airport.

6.200 Tons of asphalt per day

October 2015. Due to the deployment of 150 construction workers and 50 large technical appliances, such as milling machines and asphalt pavers, the redevelopment of the Northern runway at Berlin’s airport Schönefeld could be completed in September 2015. The surface of 200.000 square metres had to be milled and coated with a new, ant-skidding asphalt and surface lining. All passengers had to accept the much longer taxiway to the new Southern runway during the time of building. Crucial for the success of the project was the close accordance between the airport’s departments of building, aviation and security, as well as the Joint Aviation Authority, the German Air Traffic Control (DFS) and the German Weather Service.

The first phase of the innovative and sustainable Terminal 3 complex – which will be able to serve up to 14 million passengers per year – will be erected by 2022 at the south of Frankfurt Airport (FRA). Current passenger capacity in Terminals 1 and 2 will be exceeded soon because of the continuing increase in passenger traffic at the FRA global aviation hub. The challenging Terminal 3 project will require seven years of construction. Therefore, it is paramount to commence the project now. With Terminal 3, the Frankfurt Airport company will elevate its high quality and service requirements to new levels. Fraport AG’s massive investment of €2.5 to €3 billion in the new terminal is creating significant added value for the central region of Germany. Source: Fraport AG

Solving interruptions of operations fast and effectively

August 2015. It’s essential for an operation manager of buildings to be constantly and immediately informed about technical, operational and / or safety-relevant disturbances. Only this way measures for the obstacle’s elimination arranged accordingly can ensure a smooth service and conduct. LOGO examined the introduction of mobile IT-Systems in the incident management for Berlin’s Airport operating company. By optimizing IT-Interfaces and the application of mobile operating units the service quality and thus the customer satisfaction will be increased.
