Extending the eastern pier

Nordic is currently working on the Non-Schengen project, which is an extension of pier east at Oslo Airport. This space is restricted for passengers travelling to outside the Schengen area, and the security demands are higher than for the rest of the airport.

The project also includes extended taxiways and aircraft parking areas.

All clear

The new four floor building will house departure gates, waiting and pre-boarding facilities, commercial spaces, offices, border control facilities, transfer center and lounges. 

Pre-clearance facilities for travellers to the United States have been designed and are ready to be implemented. The layout of the area has been developed by Nordic in cooperation with US Department of Homeland Security. 

Keeping it efficient

The project has strict demands on cost-efficiency and programme. The building elements will be developed with a high degree of bespoke prefabrication.
