Terminal of one of the most important cities in Spain
INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Economic growth, social advancement and action against the climate emergency depend largely on investment in infrastructure, sustainable industrial development and technological progress. Today, about 1 billion people live more than 2 km from a roadway, 940 million live without electricity, and 663 million lack improved drinking water sources.
ACCIONA participates in the entire infrastructure construction value chain, from the identification of opportunity, design and execution, to the operation and maintenance of the constructed works, using the most advanced and innovative techniques.
Performance quality and safety are two of the criteria that maximize the company's value proposal in the development of large infrastructure projects and that differentiate it from other competitors in the construction field.
The main hall, under the roof in the form of a wing, receives a lot of natural light through linear skylights; the main dock (700 meters long) and two lateral docks evoke the shape of a sword; finally, the intermodal station provides a direct underground connection between Terminal 1 and the Metro network, the High Speed Train and the suburban train network of Barcelona. Around 15,000 employees work in Terminal 1 and the throughput of passengers is up to 100,000 a day.
The basic project and the construction project for the new Satellite Terminal at Barcelona Airport were also designed by the multidisciplinary team consisting of the Bofill Architecture Studio and ACCIONA Ingeniería. The Satellite is located opposite Terminal between the two existing runways parallel to the sea. It has an aerodynamic design that simultaneously evokes the shape of a bird and a plane.
