Read more about the construction of a concrete aircraft ramp at Dublin Airport.
Client: BAM Ireland
Implementation period: 2017
On behalf of an Apron (aircraft platform) renovation at Dublin Airport, Den Ouden Groep installed 10,000 m² of high-quality concrete pavement. The work was carried out to the full satisfaction of BAM Ireland and Dublin Airport Authority.
The construction consists of an unreinforced concrete floor with a thickness of 425 mm and a concrete quality of C35/45 XF4 with the addition of 5% air. The joint pattern on the platform is based on 5.5 by 5.5 meters whereby the longitudinal joints are coupled by means of a connecting rod diameter 20 mm center to center 600 mm. The transverse joints are provided with dowels, diameter 40 mm center to center 375 mm. The concrete mortar was delivered from a local distribution center, and the concrete pavement was laid with our Wirtgen SP850 Vario slipform pavement, modified to a width of 5.5 meters.
