Temporary structure specialist Neptunus has completed the construction of an interim terminal building at Berlin Schönefeld Airport, Germany, which will remain in place for up to two years while renovation work is carried out.

The 2,200m² (23,700ft²) facility took nearly four months to complete and is capable of accommodating up to 1,200 passengers in a departure lounge equipped with a restaurant, children’s play area, and toilets. There are five departure gates, each with two pre-boarding counters and pre-boarding zones for up to 75 passengers.

Neptunus was responsible for managing the entire project including the installation of electricity, lighting, heating, air-conditioning, toilet facilities and anti-slip floors, plus air and ventilation systems.

The smaller of the city’s two airports, Berlin Schönefeld serves around 13 million passengers annually and urgently requires additional capacity to cope with growing demand.

April Trasler, managing director, Neptunus, said, “Our sophisticated temporary building technology means we can provide space solutions that have the look and feel of a traditional permanent airport terminal. Our semi-permanent structures are flexible and sustainable with a long lifespan and have the advantage that they can be taken down afterwards and reused elsewhere.”
