Pier Satellite

A flagship for aviation in Germany.

With the addition of its new Terminal 2 satellite expansion, Munich airport can now accommodate an additional 11 million passengers per year. The new rod-shaped terminal expansion, which is connected to the existing terminal by means of an underground transport system, features three added passenger levels and a total of more than 52 gates. The addition of 27 aircraft parking spaces located directly next to the terminal expansion more than doubles the number of spaces close to gates serviced by Terminal 2. Designed to be a transfer terminal, the new satellite features passport and security control areas. Vollack’s hall and steel construction unit was tasked with constructing the satellite’s roughly 1,000-meter-long climate facade and central roof. The services provided by Vollack included the static analysis, construction, manufacture, and assembly of roughly 2,500 tons of steel.

“The project’s tight schedule, complex construction conditions, and very high technical and aesthetic demands were no problem for Vollack.”
