Benazir Bhutto International Airport: Design for Energy Conservation



Pakistan’s first greenfield civil aerodrome marks a new era in developing world-class aviation facilities in the country. The new Benazir Bhutto International Airport’s (BBIA) Passenger Terminal Building was designed by CPGairport for an initial capacity of 6.5 million passengers per annum. It employs environmentally sustainable design strategies such as daylighting and sun shading to reduce energy use as part of an intelligent envelope, together with an elongated, elevated driveway-length front portal.

The client – the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority – was interested in having an intelligent envelope design similar to that realized for Changi Airport Terminal 3 (T3). The design for BBIA is inspired by traditional Islamic patterns, and unlike T3, the intelligence factor is more substantially in the design, rather than expensive technology, which is not within its tight budget.

The Terminal Building has a modular design of co-located International and Domestic halls, with a centre pier extension to serve aircraft boarding gates. Daylight from the main roof skylights and the shaded facade glazing around the airside perimeter will penetrate the major part of the Departure floor area. The reduced use of artificial lighting will result in considerable energy savings. Jet nozzles will be used to distribute conditioned air from fascias that are placed at relatively low-levels using thermal stratification (whereby air is allowed to heat up in graduating layers to high ceilings), therefore saving on energy use. Part load conditions of the air-conditioning/heating will also be controlled with variable-air-volume boxes and variable-speed-drive fans. The use of pre-filters and the selection of interior finishes such as granite flooring and molded plywood seating will help ensure essentially dust-free air quality.



Christopher Kearns from CPGairport elaborates on the energy savings aspects of the design in a technical paper entitled “Benazir Bhutto International Airport: Design for Energy Conservation”. The paper summarizes the main energy savings aspects according to three main areas of the design:

1) The building envelope which filters heat from the building exterior;
2) The heating, air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation (HVAC) system, which is the major electrical load;
3) The lighting system, which makes use of daylighting, and other cost effectiveness strategies in lamp/control gear selection, to reduce the energy consumption.

Many of the measures outlined have been used in the design of Changi Airport Passenger Terminal 3 by CPG, which as a guide, was initially benchmarked to achieve 20% savings in energy consumption compared to earlier terminal developments at the airport.♦

CPGairport http://www.cpgcorp.com.sg/press/viewdetail.asp?id=266 has over 30 years of specialised airport experience, well supported by a dedicated team of airport planners and architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, project managers and programmers. It puts into practice the benefits of good airport design for the comfort, convenience and clarity of flow for passengers; and to address the key issues of safety, security and efficiency of airport operations. CPGairport believes that the primary objective of an airport’s master plan, that is employed to guide its development, is to ensure flexibility and expandability for evolving needs, with customisation necessary for local economic, cultural and environmental considerations.

Benazir Bhutto (New Islamabad) International Airport, Pakistan
Order Year 2005
Project Type New greenfield airport
Location Islamabad, Pakistan
Estimated Investment $400m, PKR37bn
Completion 2011–2012
Sponsor PCAA, Prime Minister's office
Designers and Contractors ADPI (Aéroports de Paris ingénierie), Acorp, Mushtaq and Bilal Mahboob Associates, CPG Corporation, National Engineering Services Pakistan (pvt) Ltd, Louis Berger Group, ECIL (Engineering Consultants International Ltd), Lagan Construction, Husnain Co

The New Islamabad International Airport will be the first greenfield airport ever constructed in Pakistan and will be named after the assassinated ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto (decided in June 2008 by current Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gillani).

The project was announced in January 2005 after a ten-year delay due to political changes in the country and construction began in April 2007, when funding became available.

The new airport will eventually replace the overloaded Islamabad International Airport at Chaklala providing better access for the northern areas, north-west frontier province, federally administered tribal areas, Azzad Jammu, Potohar and Kashmir.

The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) is the controlling body for the $400m (PKR37bn) project which is likely to see the airport opening for operations in 2011–2012.

The new 3,200-acre (13km²) airport site is situated on a plot of land acquired by the PCAA in the 1980s at Pind Ranjah near Fateh Jang (an additional 400 acres have been acquired to build the two runways). The airport will be 20km from the centre of Islamabad, and 23km from Rawalphindi being well served by an excellent highway infrastructure.

The airport will be constructed in two phases. Phase I of the project, which included site preparation and other earth works, was completed in April 2008. About 20% of airside infrastructure work has been completed.

Ground is being levelled for the terminal building and allied facilities. The controlling body Civil Aviation Authority has apportioned contracts worth PKR14.224bn ($178.6m) for construction activities under the self-financed project. Of these PKR11.825bn was allocated for airside infrastructure work. The airport will start operations by 2011.

Phase II of the project is underway. It will see car parking for 2,000 vehicles, a covered plaza area for 200 cars, a control tower, maintenance hangar, a 15-gate terminal with ten remote gates, 42 immigration counters, nine baggage claim carousels, 12 X-ray machines, and also office and administration facilities. There will also be a hotel, convention centre, duty-free shops, airside mall, business centre, food court, leisure facilities and banks at the new terminal.

General facilities
The airport will have a 180,000m² modular terminal building which will initially be able to handle nine million passengers a year. There will be two 4,000ft-long category-F runways (for largest heaviest aircraft) although initially only one will be used for operations and the other will be retained as an emergency runway.

There will also be a cargo complex capable of handling 100,000t a year, four rapid-exit taxiways, a special parking area for hijacked aircraft, apron parking sufficient for the contact stands, underground cable network, parking for ground handling vehicles, secure cargo areas and major airport road infrastructure.

Contractors
The airport infrastructure was designed by ADPI (Aéroports de Paris ingénierie) along with Acorp, Mushtaq and Bilal Mahboob Associates. The terminal building was designed by CPG Corporation of Singapore in a joint venture with National Engineering Services Pakistan (pvt) Ltd (design started in March 2006).

"The New Islamabad terminal will make full use of traditional Islamic geometric patterns in its design."The project management consultants for the new airport are Louis Berger Group of the US along with ECIL (Engineering Consultants International Ltd) of Pakistan.

The first phase of the construction (airside infrastructure including runways) is being undertaken over a 24-month contract for PKR11.8bn by Lagan Construction of the Republic of Ireland (60% of the work) and their local partners Husnain Cotex (40% of the work). Husnain Cotex and IKAN have also formed a joint venture to carry out the preliminary works at the airport site including earthworks and construction of embankments for the runway and main access road to the site.

Benazir Bhutto terminal design
The design of the new terminal building will be an architecturally significant one for Pakistan producing a national icon for the country. The design will also be sustainable and environmentally sound with use of natural daylight for main lighting and sun shading to cut cooling costs as well as an intelligent main roof (water conservation) and an elongated driveway length front portal (better views and more light).

The terminal will also make full use of traditional Islamic geometric patterns in its design. The modular terminal building will have a linear pier on each side and a centre pier extending out to serve the boarding gates. The international and domestic halls will be located together under the main roof, which will be a simple trapezoid cantilevered from one of the two side piers with a cantilevered mesh screen trellis defining the exposed roof edge and attaching to a row of columns close to the ground.

lahore got its upgrade in 2003 i think. the size is enough for the number of passengers it gets. karachi airport is too small though i agree.
