Danish consulting engineering group Ramboll has been selected by Arlanda Airport in Stockholm as design partner for the development of Pier G, which will be connected to Terminal 5 in the airport.

The airport has taken up an expansion programme to handle almost 40 million passengers by 2040, compared to 25 million currently.

The new pier of Stockholm Arlanda is expected to be a landmark and will prepare the airport to handle an increasing number of travellers in the future.

The new pier will expand the capacity to handle modern aircraft.

Ramboll Sweden CEO Niklas Sörensen said: “Working on a project that will impact so many people is both a challenge and a great opportunity.

“As we are already involved in the redesign of Terminal 5, we have a thorough understanding of the specific requirements.

“We look forward to continuing our long-term cooperation with Swedavia.”

The 80,000m² new building is expected to meet the highest standards for energy efficiency and its innovative design and construction are expected to set the standard for the future at Arlanda Airport.

Ramboll Group global aviation director Matthew Pierpoint said: “We are excited to continue working on the expansion of Arlanda and to use our international building expertise to help Swedavia develop airports with sustainability in mind.”

After the completion of the new pier, Arlanda Airport will be able to handle large and modern long-distance planes more efficiently, with increased passenger comfort and safety.

Ramboll will design technical solutions and coordinate the environmental classification, in accordance with the assessment method BREEAM.

Sörensen said: “Our focus will be on developing solutions that benefit sustainability as much as possible.”

Swedavia Airports is also constructing a new airport city, Airport City Stockholm, around Stockholm Arlanda, due to its location between Stockholm and Uppsala, close to railways, roads, air travel facilities.

Airport City Stockholm will consist of six districts, each with its own purpose. Office One is the first office complex to be built in the SkyCity district.
