As a key element of CPH’s ‘Expanding CPH’ growth plan, the Central Security Control (CSC) was expanded from 20 security channels, to a total of 24. This expansion was an important prerequisite for increasing the airport’s annual capacity from 25 million to 40 million passengers.
Following the expansion of Central Security Control, passengers in CPH can pass through security more quickly and easily. The expansion is part of a larger project which includes the expansion of Terminal 3 West, comprising 14,000 m2 in total.
The load-bearing structures for the expansions are made of steel, and were produced and installed by CSK. We made all components to a finished state, including surface treatment, at our factory in Latvia. From here they were transported to the construction site, where they were welded and bolted together.
Large scale columns and girders were used. This is because there are large loads in an airport building, and the building has a large projection. It is therefore important that the structure is totally rigid.
In addition to the load-bearing steel structures, CSK supplied all the steel staircases for the project. These included stairs for travellers and stairs for airport staff, including ten stairs for CSC II.
