the formation of the apron-sided boarding bridges were planned. The satellite’s supporting structure had to consider the constructive standards and constraints of the existing building, as well as the complex building logistical and the construction process technical parameters from the building site’s location. A composite-steelbridge box system with holorib metal was chosen for the storey ceilings which has contributed to the rapid and on-schedule completion of the shell construction. Further core areas of C-I-P are the planning of high-rise building, car park or underground garage renovations, as well as object planning for engineering constructions. www.c-i-p-gmbh.com
C-I-P’s know how was successfully implemented into the structural engineering for the new satellite of Terminal 2 in Munich’s airport which will help increase the capacity of the terminal by 11 million passengers annually. Working alongside I-T-S and planning entity SFP, C-I-P managed to guarantee a smooth operation.The satellite is a three to five-storey-high expansion of the existing baggage sorting hall into a passenger terminal. The expansion of the subterranean passenger transport system and
