Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH is planning to extend its terminal infrastructure in order to reflect future terminal requirements and complement the existing terminals 1-3. To this end, the first task was to summarize the requirements and objectives of such an extension in a list of specifications.
The AG was then able to use this list of specifications not only to explore and explain existing requirements but also to anticipate future trends and incorporate these into the development of the terminal. As a first step, the AG collaborated with the Airport Research Center (ARC) to produce a comprehensive feasibility study, thus putting all further preparations on a firm footing.
The subsequent plan was to use the year 2019 to flesh out these deliberations in terms of planning and in particular to identify with precision the future potential and requirements. The preliminary deliberations which had already taken place were first verified by means of system planning in order to determine built feasibility. AS+P Albert Speer + Partner GmbH has extensive experience with this planning tool and in using the system planning format.
