The overall design of airports combines the architecturally challenging demands of developing passenger terminals in accordance with economic requirements, the planning of air-side flight operations to manage air travel along with the integration of land transport. In addition, environmental and sustainability aspects must be considered.
Consideration is required for the various different interests of Operators, passengers, airlines, local residents, employees and other business entities.

Modern airport terminals combine security requirements to an optimum standard with the different interests of their operators, passengers and other users of the airport including the non-aviation areas. Clear, transparent operations with no conflict between arrival and departure areas enable all airline passengers to orient themselves easily and conveniently. The type of terminal must reflect location related factors in terms of its shape, size and design. Through the use of flexible arrangement of space and the scope for expansion, it is possible to keep pace with the continuous changes in capacity levels and demand in aviation.
In terms of the current global trends in favour of low-cost carriers, the design of terminals for this market segment involves special requirements in terms of functional design concept, limited investment budget and implementation timescale.
In addition to passenger terminals, airports need to have other specific buildings for its operations, including freight buildings, maintenance hangars, control towers, fire stations, catering and administration facilities.
Passenger terminals and the other buildings need to be provided with appropriate technical building services. For example, water and drainage technology, technical systems for ambient air, electrical engineering, communications technology, security and fire life safety technology, building automation and application-specific systems technology.
Through close collaboration with the engineers from OBERMEYER Infrastruktur GmbH & Co. KG, our overall approach to planning for airport buildings provides high-quality solutions.
