Vágar Airport

In June 2014, Vágar Airport on the Faroe Islands opened its latest extension. The project involved construction of a new terminal building and new service building, which both matched the requirements of a modern airport with many passengers.

CSK planned, designed, produced and delivered all beams and columns for the geometrically atypical terminal building, including the special roof that formed a single large steel structure.

The attractive building was architecturally inspired by Madrid-Barajas airport, with the unusual feature that virtually no joins are perpendicular. Rather the module network is slightly angled, and the entire roof is curved like a giant bow.

Such a design makes all facets of the design phase and production much more complex. The fact that everything was crooked, curved and interconnected, and that we also had to take into account the special wind conditions, made for a big and interesting challenge.

Free rein

Unlike the terminal building, the new service building had a more traditional geometry and design. CSK was therefore given free rein, and worked out the dimensions and details itself.

There are strong winds on the Faroe Islands. We therefore chose to reduce the wind load through wind simulations, drawing on specialists from Svend Ole Hansen, a Danish engineering company.
