When Oslo Airport needed to increase capacity to accommodate 35 million passengers per year, the winning bid came from Nordic. The project involved planning and designing airside and landside areas, expanding the existing terminal building, and adding a new pier.
The pier is the main new design feature at Oslo Airport. The pier, which is constructed with curved glulam beams and cladded with oak, creates an efficient and flexible passenger flow by siting domestic and international areas one on top of the other, allowing all travellers to use all gates.
Oslo airport is one of the most energy efficient airports in the world, so it was important for Nordic to think in terms of a sustainable extension. The shape of the building takes advantage of passive solar energy and sunlight, and features low-carbon technologies like district heating and natural thermal energy.
