Extending the eastern pier

Nordic has carried out the scheme design phase for 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 area will house departure gates, commercial spaces, offices, baggage handling systems and operations, as well as preclearance facilities for travellers heading to the United States. Security systems are developed by Nordic and COWI, in close cooperation with the U.S. 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.
