From the beginning of 2006, all airlines at Copenhagen airport were represented in one place: the transfer centre. Passengers can come here for assistance with flight changes, delays, lost baggage, etc.
The transfer centre consists of a 1000 m2 glass covered atrium with counters and service staff along one side, and a café, trees and Internet connections along the other side.
The building was designed and constructed jointly by architects Christian P. Skjoldborg and Rambøll engineers.
CSK supplied the frame for the huge glass dome, which spans an area of 48 x 19.5 metres. The dome consists of 400 triangular panes of glass, and the structure was made with specially welded joins to absorb the forces in the span.
The project was quite unique in several respects, including the working hours. To avoid delaying travellers in the busy airport, all installation work took place between midnight and 6.00 am.
