Smoking Shelter at Airport Terminal
Improving Customer Experience At Airport Terminal
MJM Industrial is extremely proud to have been part of the team responsible for the new smoking shelter infrastructure at this airport terminal. Our work on the project was recognised by our invitation to the official opening of the smoking shelter, attended by the Chief Operating Officer of this Airport.
MJM Industrial was invited by the lead contractor to design, build and install a brand new ASIAD (Aviation Security in Airport Development) compliant smoking facilities infrastructure at this airport terminal. The brief also required the installation of heaters and improved ventilation inside the new shelter; providing optimum separation between the smoking shelter and the main terminal.
We project managed the implementation of this new infrastructure from start to finish. This included site survey, airside pass management, securing and protecting the site, reuse of existing materials where possible, electrical works, fabrication of new steel supports, new signage, intumescent painting of steelwork to improve fire resistance and site clear-up following works. All works were required to be carried out at night by fully qualified and certified personnel.
The smoking shelter was designed and built to incorporate total airside security handling. Bespoke designed laser cut panel system adjoined to double layered mesh ensured debris and flammable waste could not be discarded onto the airside facilities. Inside the smoking shelter, we designed and built ASIAD approved bespoke seating, heating, information technology and waste management containment.
Our engineers created a new connection between the terminal and the smoking shelter using a secure pathway around the corner of the building. Smoking is not permitted on this secure pathway leading up to the smoking shelter. For this reason, we painted bold display signs on the pathway.
To further protect the terminal from the ingress of smoke, an additional glazed sliding door at the end of the walkway was installed. Air curtains were positioned above each door, and new way finding signage was added throughout the terminal.
The completed project received very positive feedback from our client. This newly installed infrastructure provided a safe and welcoming smoking area for passengers who wanted to smoke at the airport. Importantly, the smoking shelter removed the possibility of any unwanted secondhand smoke from entering the premises; protecting the other passengers and staff members within the terminal.
