Airport Design

Airport design is a complex and interdisciplinary field. It requires the integration of aspects from architecture, engineering, landscape design, urban planning, and other disciplines. It is the purposeful planning and designing of airport facilities that are comfortable, efficient, cost-effective, and aesthetically pleasing for both airport passengers and airlines. It includes the selection of an appropriate site for the airport, planning of the layout of the terminal and associated facilities, selection of the type and number of aircraft parking positions, and the design of the airside and landside road networks. Airport design also requires the examination and management of environmental issues such as existing noise levels, air pollution, and habitat destruction. Airport designers need to be aware of the complex regulations that govern the aviation industry and be able to provide solutions that fit the needs of the business and stakeholders.

Airport planning, engineering, architecture, sustainability, safety.
