Larnaca International Airport
Pascall + Watson / Stantec
DSA provided the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection and lighting systems design, as well as building automation environmental control systems design, for the Larnaka International Airport in Cyprus. Working directly for Bouygues International in a Design & Build arrangement, in keeping with our sustainable building philosophy, DSA designed an ice storage cooling system so as to reduce the overall mechanical and electrical system demands, the overall energy costs, and the environmental impact of the building. In addition, we designed 12,000 m² of PV arrays as car parking canopies, and this is the largest PV installation in Europe.
The main 10 metre-high concourse uses an underfloor air distribution system to maintain comfort conditions in the 2.5 metre zone above the floor which saves energy by reducing overall airflow volumes.
The open plan facility includes main arrival halls and departure halls, ticketing areas, baggage claims, customs/immigration, lounges and concessions and a 15,000m² retail shopping area. It will serve 10 million passengers per year.
The project has resulted in an energy-efficient terminal that demonstrates a flexibility that accommodates future changes and technologies. This was a €250 M PFI project. The terminal opened in July 2009.
