Terminal T3 Satellite, Beijing International Airport
Beijing, China

The Satellite terminal for Beijing International Airport T3 is a proposed modular system that can address the problem of on site construction for China’s expanding Civil Aviation programme. The brief is to design a modular, combined with pre fabricated building systems terminal system to accommodate departures and arrivals.

The building systems design solution need to address the following:

  • Piling and foundation systems that cause minimal impact during construction;
  • Super Structure including concourse floor slab condition and roof supporting structure;
  • Integrated MEP requirements (lighting, ventilation, heating and cooling and water supply);
  • Natural Ventilation and daylight requirements;
  • Vertical and horizontal circulation for abled and disabled needs;
  • Aircraft maintenance vehicle access (e.g. Re-Fuel vehicles and luggage and passenger vehicle for connection to the main terminal);
  • Lightweight materials that are both transportable and environmental;
  • Interior finish (flexible and optional design styles);
  • Design that can be both expandable in a linear and variable configuration plan geometry.
