Kruse Smith AS
CSK contributed to the construction of a new 52,000 m2 arrival and departure hall, as well as a new 63,000 m2 foreign and domestic terminal at Oslo Airport. Our role was to design, produce and deliver all steel structures, and to coordinate installation in collaboration with Kruse Smith AS.
As something quite unusual, the new buildings were constructed in an airport in full operation. The work therefore had to be carried out without causing disruption to passengers, employees or operations as a whole. For safety reasons, this meant that the construction work closest to the passenger flow was done at night.
The security rules at an airport also do not only apply to passengers and airport personnel. Everyone who enters the zone must be approved.
CSK’s employees therefore had to present a clean criminal record, and background checks were performed on everyone. Our employees also had to pass through the security check every day before being allowed access to the construction site. The stringent security checks also applied when building materials had to be brought in. We had to get a special permit for both the driver and the vehicle in which the materials were being transported.
As a whole, the exciting project in Gardermoen therefore demanded a degree of flexibility far beyond the ordinary.
