Architectural vision and functionality satisfied without compromising the 'Code Objectives' and the operational requirements.



Kota Kinabalu International Airport, Sabah, Malaysia
Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) is the main gateway into the state of Sabah (East Malaysia) and represents the second busiest airport in Malaysia after Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Around 4 million passengers use this airport annually for domestic and international flights. The airport represents an important capital investment for the continued economic growth of the State of Sabah.

Scientific Fire Services Pty Limited conducted a comprehensive fire hazard analysis and fire safety engineering assessment of the proposed design for the KKIA expansion project.

The performance based fire safety engineering approach has permitted a more rational and logical basis of design supported by sophisticated engineering analyses. The design approach has resulted in significant savings through the relaxation of the prescriptive requirements while preserving the high levels of safety required for the KKIA terminal building.

Some of the design issues that formed the basis of the fire safety engineering approach included the following:

•Rationalisation of fire compartmentation volumes within the expansion terminal building.
•Use of non-protected structural steel elements incorporated into the main super-structure of the concourse level.
•Flexible occupant egress provisions adopted throughout general public areas of the KKIA building.
•Adoption of a fire separation strategy within the main public areas.
•Use of unique natural smoke ventilation system for the main public concourse areas.
•Rationalisation of automatic sprinkler coverage to the high ceiling space areas of the public concourse.
The assessment involved extensive Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling in order to ensure the smoke hazard management system performance was compatible with the life safety goals established by the design team.

Comprehensive structural analyses was undertaken utilising simulated fire conditions in order to predict the performance of the non-protected structural steel elements.

Detailed computer evacuation simulations were conducted for the entire airport building to determine effective occupant egress design was achieved and compatible with airport functionality and security measures.

The terminal building is scheduled to open in 2008.

New Shenzhen-Kota Kinabalu Route To Boost China Tourist Arrivals
July 11, 2009 22:35 PM

KOTA KINABALU, July 11 (Bernama) -- The new Shenzhen-Kota Kinabalu route by Shenzhen Airlines is expected to bring in more China tourists to Sabah and contribute to achieving the state's target of 1.2 million international tourists this year.

Tourism Malaysia state director Mohd Roslan Abdullah said Sabah had recorded an annual growth in tourist arrivals from China, from 61,567 tourists in 2006 to 77,475 tourist arrivals in 2007 and 87,175 tourist arrivals in 2008.

"This shows that there is a healthy growth in terms of tourist arrivals from that country. With the recent addition of China's carrier Shenzhen Airlines making its way to Sabah, we hope for more tourists from China," he said at the at welcoming dinner after Shenzhen Airlines' inaugural flight to Sabah.

The airline launched the new route last night, with the inaugural flight leaving Shenzhen at 11.50pm with 163 passengers, including invited guests and members of the media, and which arrived here at 2.30am today. A batch of Sabah media members flew out to Shenzhen at 4.30am as part of its familiarisation programme.

Shenzhen Airlines sales department general manager Liu Zhen said it will fly to Kota Kinabalu twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays with a capacity of 164 seats and although it is currently operating chartered flights the airline hoped to operate scheduled flights soon.

"Despite the current economic climate and global health scare, Shenzhen Airlines chose to continue its plan to fly to KK, as we have been working on it for a year in our efforts to enter the market.

"Our aim is to make Shenzhen as a hub, passengers from Malaysia especially from Sabah will fly to other cities in China via Shenzhen, and vice versa those from China will go to Sabah through Shenzhen," he said, adding that Shenzhen also connected to a network of 24 other cities in China.

He added that only this year they introduced flights to Bangkok in April and will start flying to Phnom Penh in September, so Sabah was the second international destination launched so far.

Shenzhen Airlines is already flying to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

At present Malaysia's low cost carrier, AirAsia, is also servicing the Shenzhen-KK route.

Liu said also in the pipeline were plans to introduce four new routes to Japan and other cities in South East Asia.

Shenzhen Airlines is a Shenzhen-based airline founded in November 1992 and started service in September 1993 as an airline specialised in passengers, cargo and mail transportation.

Its total assets at present are worth 20 billion yuan (RM10.45 billion), it has over 15,000 employees, owns over 130 passenger and cargo planes, does over 280 domestic and international flight routes, and is among the five largest airlines in China.

RSTC delaying airport upgrade
31 Jul 2009

Kota Kinabalu: Works to upgrade the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) can only be completed either in February and March next year due to external problems faced by the contractor.

State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said among the stumbling blocks is the RSTC racecourse in Tanjung Aru that has yet to relocate to its facility in Tuaran.

He said the extension of the runway, which comes under Package Two of the project, was supposed to be completed in April this year while Package One - to upgrade the Terminal, in May.

Because the racecourse still stands in its way, the contractor has not been able to set up the approach lights at the northern end.

"I believe the RSTC (Royal Sabah Turf Club) and Diriwan are working very hard to ensure the Tambalang Race Course (in Tuaran) can be used as soon as possible," he said after attending a briefing by Malaysia Airports Berhad (MAB) and the consultant to the project, Thursday.

Such problem he said is beyond the control of the MAB and the contractor.

Masidi said the State Cabinet has asked the relevant authority in the State Government to ensure the RSTC moves out soonest possible.

In the meantime, he has asked the consultant and MAB to negotiate with the contractor to take action in order to reduce the time extension.

The delay in completing the upgrading project, he said, would have a huge implication on the effort to turn Sabah into one of the most important tourism destinations in the country.

"When something (of this sort) happens, it gives rise to other implications because other aspects of the job cannot be done until and unless that aspect of the job is completed first."

On other problems, he said these would be referred to the State Cabinet as soon as possible.

He said the MAB and the consultant would be invited to brief the Cabinet, as there could be factors that require a decision and guidance from the State Government.

Masidi said there is a pressing need for the airport to be completed fast.

"The future of Kota Kinabalu as a hub depends very much on how efficient we are and how fast we are in completing the upgrading work of the KKIA," he said.

He said the airport has a lot of implications on the future of the tourism industry as well as aviation industry.

Airlines want to see how good the airport is and for that reason alone they need to move fast to complete the upgrading project.

The MAB, he said would also be affected because less aircraft would be able to use the airport.

"If less aircraft (land here), their source of income will be affected (and because of that there would be) less income for the State and Federal governments thus affecting our tourism revenue," he said.

On other developments, he said the area on the south end of the runway approach is not facing anymore problem because the squatters there have already been resettled in Kinarut.

On the flyover in Tanjung Aru, he said it is not part of the upgrading contract work per se although it is carried out by the same contractor under Package II.

"The Public Works Department (PWD) is the consultant (for the flyover project) and I (was made to) understand (that) it is on time," he said.

Masidi, meanwhile, denied the delay was partly caused by lack of funds from the Government to the contractor.

"I can assure you here that the government has no problem in paying. In fact it is all on timeÉprogress payment has (always) been on time," he stressed.

He said Package One of the upgrading project is already 90 per cent complete while Package Two, 87 per cent complete.
