The new Passenger Terminal is the crowning jewel of a massive and comprehensive Airport Modernisation Program, which revamps the Kingdom’s entire aviation sector, integrating a range of industries. The design Incorporates the latest aviation industry technologies and the highest standards of construction and design, the new Passenger Terminal aims to ensure that travelling through Bahrain International Airport is a comfortable, smooth, safe, and memorable experience.
A unitised curtain wall system is supported by a series of 21-meter high steel trusses. The challenge was to connect to the steel trusses in the limited available space. This required the design of special extrusions that were studied and engineered to meet the requirements. The connections are hidden inside the profiles which provide a seamless view without exposing any fasteners, meeting the design intent. The system type is a Stick System with Steel Truss System.
