In preparation to a major rehabilitation project of its north runway, Berlin Brandenburg Airport commissioned airsight to conduct an in-depth investigation of the conformity of the existing infrastructure against the most recent EASA Certification Specifications.
In total, more than 140 infrastructural elements related to the runway and associated taxiways have been individually assessed. It included the review of signs, markings, lights, shoulders, and further applicable requirements such as strips, runway end safety area, etc.
Runway rehabilitation projects are generally a great opportunity to solve existing deviations to applicable requirements as well as to optimise the infrastructure and equipment (rapid exit taxiways, fillets, lighting etc.): through the identification of possible improvements and development of efficient implementation strategies, significant synergies and cost savings can be realised.
