Expansion of Mohamed V International Airport - Casablanca | Morocco

Incide Engineering was involved by Jet Contractors for the executive study of the extension of Casablanca International Airport, in order to realize two separate and totally different interventions:
-Domestic module of 80x60m (departures, national arrivals and international transits); design of the structural steel mesh coordinated with the routes of the transit flows. Design of the curvilinear staggered double-pitch roof and foundations, in coordination with existing neighbouring structures.
-Central Module (international arrivals and transits connected with the existing T1 and T2 terminals); intervention developed for 3 buildings located in the heart of the airport, continuous with each other but structurally separated. The multi-storey buildings were designed and modelled in constant coordination with the models of the existing buildings. Important work required the study of the structural meshes so as to impact as little as possible on the flow paths, police control areas and baggage trolley transits. In this regard, one of the buildings was specially designed with a mesh to allow a free space dedicated to trolley transit during assembly in order not to interrupt the airport's operational flow during the construction phases.
Both projects were developed on a BIM platform with coordination of the MEP/HVAC systems according to the guidelines of the architectural office.
