New Doha International Airport

The New Doha International Airport is a design creation of Overseas Bechtel Incorporated and HOK Architects.  This project has been in the design and building phase since 2004.

Designed by Overseas Bechtel Incorporated, the airport has 2 parallel runways (60 m. wide, 4,450 m. and 4,250 m. long) and 2 parallel taxiways to accommodate simultaneous departures and arrivals. At a cost of $5.5Bn, the airport was originally designed to hand an annual capacity of 12m passengers later being expanded to handle 24m travelers.  The airport will have 40 gates with facilities designed to handle the new Airbus 380.

The Airport
The airport, now referred as NDIA, New Doha International Airport, is located in Doha Qatar and will be the new hub for Qatar Airways.  The original airport had a passenger capacity of 7.2m.  This world class facility will have 40 active boarding gates with an annual capacity of 24m passengers.  Two parallel runways will allow the movement of over 300,000 aircraft landings and takeoffs along with 750,000 tons of cargo.  The airport is being constructed over 3 phases and will be complete in 2015 with 3 distinct area; The Emiri terminal (for VIP’s and the Royal Family), Cargo Terminal and the main passenger terminal.

Challenge
Creating a world class entry point for Qatar, NDIA wanted to create a state of the art working facility that addresses all the security and life safety concerns for passengers, workers and visitors.

Solution
Ingersoll Rand was selected as the security and life safety provider based on over 60 years of proven solutions worldwide.  From the architectural design of the terminals to the escape routes to the passenger flow from curb to gate, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies provides not only a secure environment but a safe environment for passengers and airline workers alike. 

NDIA management was concerned about key duplication so they selected a patented proprietary keyway for their mechanical access control provided by Schlage Lock Company.

All the money in the world spent on a sophisticated security system, does not work if the door does not close properly.  Therefore OBI specified the 4000 series cast iron door closers manufactured by LCN.  These heavy duty door closers offer the versatility the maintenance personnel require while offering the durability of 10,000,000 cycles.  Less replacements results in lower maintenance costs and less material ending up in landfills therefore better protecting the environment.

In this complex environment, life safety is of utmost concern for both passengers and airport workers alike.  The architects selected Von Duprin to provide life safety for this project.  Von Duprin has been providing life safety and security on the world’s finest properties for over 100 years.  For protection against a fire in the terminal, utilizing their proprietary delayed egress features in their Chexit device guarding against unauthorized entry to the tarmac, Von Duprin offers the most durable device in history  Cycle tested to over 1,000,000 cycles, Von Duprin continues to be the leader in providing life safety in airport environments.

Dubai International Airport

The Dubai International Airport first opened with terminal 2 in 1998.  Constructed by Bechtel, IRST began its role in supplying life safety and security equipment.  The airport design has been done by ADPi located in Paris France with assistance from Dar Al Handasah located in Beirut, Lebanon. Currently the 10th busiest airport in the world with over 60 million passengers annually. Upgrades are coming that will allow the airport to handle over 80 million passengers.  There are 72 passport control gates, 30 baggage claim belts and 60 aerobridges for passenger loading and unloading.
