Robin Hood Airport
RPS provided Mechanical and Electrical designs for the first international airport to be constructed in the UK in 40 years.
The Airport was created from a disused 900 acre RAF Airfield in fifteen months. RPS provided Mechanical, Electrical, Communications, Vertical Transportation, Baggage Handling & Acousic Services to the 16,000m2, energy conscious development including a five story Passenger Terminal Building, Rescue Fire Fighting Station and an Air Traffic Control Tower, which incorporates lighting control, rainwater harvesting, heat recovery, and a mixture of inverter driven air conditioning strategies including displacement ventilation.
Our practical and commercial discussions secured the primary energy sources of a 17 MVa HV power supply and a 20 MW medium pressure gas supply. Three new HV ring mains, MP gas, and water distribution networks form the backbone of the site infrastructure which serve both airside and landside facilities.
Future proofed CCTV and access control with information flow through a single backbone structured voice, data, PABX and Airport Operational Database (AODB) is provided.
Away from the Terminal Building Automatic Car Registration Number Plate Recognition were provided to the ticket barrier controlled car parks, and drop off points, all covered by secure lighting and street lighting systems.
