Added value

ADP Ingénierie has produced the master plan and developed the architectural concept in cooperation with CSWADI.

Context

Working in partnership with CSWADI and the China Railway Design Institute, ADP Ingénierie (ADPI) won the competition to design and develop the eastern zone of the airport to increase its capacity to 70,000,000 passengers per year.

Our solution

The concept imagined by ADP Ingénierie and its partners avoids the use of a people mover.

The phase 1 of the project deals with the new terminal 3, whose 550,000-sqm area is designed to welcome 30 million passengers per year. This will increase the airport’s capacity to 45,000,000 passengers per year by 2020.

The architectural solution proposed by ADP Ingénierie differs from the competitors by a very large terminal that centralises all air traffic passenger flows at its geometric centre. The principle of distributing aircraft along two distinct wings makes a clear reference to the two rivers that flow through Chongqing.

The great originality of the project lies in being able to extend the building on airside to add concourses if necessary, whilst concentrating all passenger handling operations in the central terminal building. Possible solution thanks to the many train and metro access points provided within the terminal. This multimodal approach to transport also reflects the clear commitment to environmental protection issues. In its final phase, the passenger terminal will be able to handle 55 million passengers in only one building.
