In 2020 we completed our role working alongside global engineering consultancy AECOM, to assist in the delivery of a new terminal 5 & GTC building at Hong Kong International Airport.
Our specialist Connection Design Team were commissioned by AECOM to work alongside their structural engineers in designing and detailing the non-standard and complex steelwork connections for the roof structure.
D4S working closely with AECOM developed their design intent to a fabrication level of detail for the primary and secondary trusses known as the Cloud and Feather trusses respectively. Also, to assist with the rafters and bracing in the roof and the complex heavily loaded tree structure supporting the roof.
The first phase of work incorporated almost 50 different types, including CIDECT connection and complex torsion and moment connections, with primary truss splices designed to take huge forces of 6900Kn compression and 7100kn torsion.
Our Detailing Division, TDS, were then also appointed directly by the airport authority to produce a fully federated BIM model to LOD 400 specification. All in all, a transformational way of working as part of our vision as a Group to establish an industry which is digitally-led, efficient, streamlined and collaborative.
