Railway Stations and Airports

IFC’s expertise | ensures projects keep moving and are delivered on time

 

King's Cross, St Pancras

St Pancras Railway Station is a central London railway terminus celebrated for its Victorian architecture. It was originally opened in 1868 and was extensively refurbished in the early 2000's at a cost of £800 million.  IFC were instructed to carry out a peer review of work undertaken by other fire consultants on the project.  IFC went on to provide smoke control, structural fire engineering and passive fire compartmentation design advice on the project as well as means of escape advice on this very prestigious high profile project.  

 

Heathrow, Terminal 5 (T5)

London Heathrow Terminal 5 is an airport terminal at London Heathrow Airport. Opened in 2008, the main building in the complex is the largest free-standing structure in the United Kingdom. Terminal 5 is currently used exclusively as the global hub of British Airways. The terminal is designed to ultimately handle 35 million passengers a year.  IFC were called in and commissioned to provide a peer review of previous fire engineers and consultants work on the project.  IFC reviewed the complex fire strategy, smoke control and proposed fire detection systems and designs for the development.  IFC engineers have also worked on the Fire Safety Strategies for T5.

 

Changi Airport, Singapore

Changi Airport is the main airport in Singapore. A major hub in South-east Asia, it serves more than 100 airlines, with over 6,100 flights every week and has a capacity to handle more than 70 million passengers a year.  IFC engineers worked on the fire safety strategies for Changi airport including the means of escape analysis, smoke control and management strategies and related design advice.  Subsequently we have provided design advice and engineering analysis in relation to refurbishment projects at the airport.

  Brussels International Airport

Brussels Airport is an international airport located near Brussels, Belgium. Brussels Airport currently consists of 54 contact gates, and a total of 109 gates. It is home to around 260 companies, together directly employing 20,000 people. 

IFC engineers worked on the fire safety strategies for Brussels airport including the means of escape analysis, smoke control and management strategies and related fire safety design advice. 

  Gatwick Airport

Gatwick Airport is located to the south of London.  It is London's second largest international airport and second busiest by total passenger traffic in the United Kingdom after Heathrow.  Its two terminals – North and South – cover an area of 75,000 square metres and 120,000 square metres respectively. In 2011, over 33.6 million passengers passed through Gatwick. 

IFC engineers are working on the fire safety strategies for Gatwick airport including; detailed condition and fire compartmentation surveys, means of escape analysis, smoke control and management strategies and related ongoing design advice.  IFC provide detailed specification and project supervision and snagging of works packages with commissioning and handover testing protocols in relation to refurbishment projects at the airport, both Terminal and other surrounding support buildings.
