Dublin Airport’s T2 opens
Design: Pascall+Watson, architects
Dublin Airport’s visually striking new second terminal has been completed.
The new terminal, T2, has been built for Dublin Airport Authority with Arup as prime consultant and design engineers, Mace as construction manager and Pascall+Watson as architect. Costing €395million (euro), T2 will be capable of handling 15 million passengers per year, long and short-haul.
The 75,000 sqm terminal, which uses approximately two thirds less energy compared to other equivalent terminal buildings, is already award winning having received a Structural Steel Design Award earlier this year.
“When we received our commission for the masterplan of Dublin Airport and then the terminal we knew this development was one of national importance. Our solution was going to have to capture the aspirations and spirit of the country as well as celebrate the synergy between form and function, and deliver a world-class passenger experience,” says Alan Lamond, International Aviation Director for Pascall+Watson.
