Midfield Terminal Complex

complex ground conditions had to be overcome for this project's success

ByrneLooby have been extensively involved in the development of Abu Dhabi International Airport’s showpiece Midfield Terminal Complex.

Working closely with our client, we have designed the foundations for each of the 29 tower cranes to be used to construct the US$3.2bn complex, conducted stability analyses for a number of slopes and undertaken assessments on the suitability of material for use as backfill across the site.

The complex ground conditions which consist of different rock types were challenging and required serious consideration especially for the crane foundations where we carried out location specific analyses for each design to ensure robust solutions for our client.
