Along with the project ‘The Circle’, which has the purpose to establish Zurich Airport as a service destination from 2018 on, the parking area had to be optimised and adjusted to the passenger increase expected in the next years. Therefore, the car parks P40 and P45 were dismantled and replaced by the expansion of car park P6 to the south.
The new car park features 12 floors and parking levels hence now offering sufficient space for 1,300 additional cars. The floors are accessible via a central spindle.
In order to meet the requirements in terms of seismic protection, the expansion features space of approximately 43 m to the existing building.
mageba was chosen to find a solution for a suitable passage construction. Besides seismic protection, adequate load and movement capacity had to be assured. mageba hence developed the special joints TENSA-SEISMIC RS-Fuse. 66 units of a total length of 450.5 m as well as steel cover plates of a total length of 2,013 m were delivered and installed.
Thanks to mageba‘s long-term experience in the infrastructure and building sector, the entire order processing to the point of installation was reliably carried out from one source and on schedule.
