Danish consulting group Cowi, in collaboration with architect firms Vilhelm Lauritzen and ZESO, has secured the planning and design contract for the $121.2m Pier E project at Denmark’s Copenhagen Airport.

As part of the airport’s $2.85bn expansion plans, Pier E will be developed to handle increasing passenger traffic and enhance services.

Over the next 20 to 25 years, passenger figures at Copenhagen Airport are expected to rise from 26 million to 40 million every year.

The 22,000m² Pier E development project will include the construction of a new three-storey building and a support building.

Cowi will operate as the main consultant on the project, while Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects and ZESO Architects will deliver the architectural design for the facility.

Cowi Department for Roads and Airports project director Ejner Christensen said: “An airport construction project of this magnitude should be able to stand for at least 50 years.

"An airport construction project of this magnitude should be able to stand for at least 50 years."

“This is why we have created large scope in the structures so that considerable modification is not required each time new needs impose new demands on the interior design and functions.

“More passengers want to fly directly to long distance destinations. This requires larger aircraft and so capacity for a higher passenger flow through the building, which is reflected in all technical installations and the interior design of lounges, passenger control, etc.”

Once complete, Pier E will be able to accommodate more aircraft stands, thereby serving additional routes.

Slated to open for passengers from 1 April 2019, the new facility will have ten gates for large aircraft and 20 gates for smaller aircraft operating on European routes.
