Expansion of an international airport hub

Terminal 3 Airport in Frankfurt, Germany

In order to secure Frankfurt Airport's position as an international airport hub and to be able to continue to meet passenger comfort requirements, the new Terminal 3 is being built in the south of the airport.

The expansion will increase capacity from the current 70 million passengers by initially 19 million passengers per year. The new terminal will have at least 38 building positions and 3 positions close to the buildings, where even the most modern wide-body aircraft are allowed to dock. Furthermore, the terminal will offer up to 100 check-in counters and drop-off points as well as 15 baggage reclaim belts as part of the new baggage system connecting the new building with the existing terminals.

dechant hoch- und ingenieurbau gmbh (dhib) has been commissioned with the shell construction work for the new Terminal 3 and has entrusted Julius Berger International with scheduling and construction sequence planning, work preparation and collaboration in project management. The services include, among other things, participation in the definition of the cycle and concreting sections during construction in order to coordinate the formwork supplier and the formwork material disposition, the establishment and monthly updating of the execution schedule as a network plan with "event tracking" as well as cooperation in the tracking of disruptions during the construction process. The monthly 4-week preview of the network plan as a basis for the Lean Management based target-performance activity recording supports dhib significantly in ensuring the schedule and performance targets.
