INROS LACKNER SE was contracted for the structural design of the new building. The structural frame analysis program RSTAB was used for the 3D model calculation.
The new terminal is a four-sided, transparent filigree structure which includes passport, customs, and ticketing facilities. On the land side, solid box structures for building services and restroom facilities were constructed.
The primary supporting structure includes V-shaped tubular steel columns supporting I-beam truss girders. Due to poor soil conditions in the port area, the columns are further supported on piles.
In addition to the check-in hall, there is a large service building for baggage handling as well as customs, police, and port personnel. The glazed terminal building roof provides narrow covering over the entire terminal building but has no structural connection to it.
With the trapezoidal building shape, the architect has additionally provided the terminal wharf.
