T2 seems to be progressing fairly well, I've been through Dub Airport twice in the last month and its moving fairly quickly. Pier D is also very nice (a long bloody walk) but spacious and bright which is nice (also there's a bar down there :)) but the only problem is that the signs showin gate numbers are really small.Still I think pier D is quite a well designed extension to the airport.

Also, the DAA have applied to An Bord Pleanala for permission to build an extension to Pier D, i.e. they are seeking a declaration that such permission falls under the Strategic Infrastrure process and can bypass Fingal's planning processes. The extension will add 7 new gates and will be a continuation of the current building.

They will have to rearrange the roads before they can start on the front section.

Oh, it's a very classy little bar until you glance upwards and realise that they never fitted a ceiling. It's just pipes and other usually hidden paraphenalia :p

On second inspection, the above image does not seem to show the outer skin of terminal 2.

I found floor plans for the new terminal on the Fingal Co Co website if anyone is interested.


planning application is F06A/1248 on http://www.fingalcoco.ie



There is a document called 'Floor Plans' on one of the pages which details everything, it's 50MB though. Check in will be on the ground floor (with the baggage hall behind), departures hall/security on the second floor, with baggage reclaim and arrivals on the first floor.

There's some info on the cladding here. That looks like the first layer maybe.

Construction has started on the check in building (facing the main T2 structure) the alignment for the road to T1 between the two structures is now clearly visible.

They are a month in at this stage alright. Looks like they are making good progress as per seen last week by myself.

http://www.dublinairportauthority.com/TDA/Latest_News/131008_steel.html

The first elements of the steel structure for the T2 check-in hall at Dublin Airport were erected this afternoon.

The check-in hall for Terminal Two is located in front of the main T2 terminal building, which is now well under construction.

T2 contractor Watson Steel lifted the first steel column for the check-in hall into position at about 3.20pm this afternoon, having earlier unloaded several truck loads of steel at the check-in hall site.

Over the past six months, the steel frame of T2’s main passenger terminal has transformed the airport skyline. But with the check-in hall now beginning to take shape, the full design of Terminal Two will become more obvious to both passengers and staff.

Steel erection began at T2 on March 31, when the first elements of the baggage hall were lifted into position. Work began on the frame of the terminal proper in May.

YUK.:mad: - What a mess. Who is responsible for this monument to a lack of imagination ?
Things like this would find difficulty getting planning permission in an industrial estate on the outskirts of Dusseldorf, yet our planners have no problem allowing such a monolithic, illiterate and mundane structure to grace the principal entry point to the country.
First impressions last, and anyone arriving into Dublin airport for the first time would probably pass this place by under the assumption that it is just another office block in the airport complex. A lost opportunity.

Whew! that's a relief! I thought the new terminal looked suitably bloated and corporate as I approached it on Aircoach (and I thought the 'old' treminal environs had been greatly improved by recent works). It's virtually impossible to read the airport as an entity, but that doesn't mean it's all bad - and, for me at least, it all worked, which is all that I ask of an airport. Sometimes, they are an aesthetic experience (cf. Cork, Palma), but the railway stations of the 21st C they generally are not.

Yes, that does look awful and is an affront to any sense of aesthetics (and just when I thought m/s carparks were getting better). I presume the sticky-out tube does actually go somewhere and is not just for the vomitose effluent emitted by offended aesthetes.

Of the two tubes, the one connected no nothing in the visual is not in the planning application. Presumably it's future pie in the sky to connect to the overground part of the adjacent Metro station.

Anyone know what the story is with Corballis House?
I remember reading somewhere that it had to be rebuilt "brick by brick" elsewhere in order to make room for T2 as it was a protected building. Where is it now?
I always admired the way that the airport expanded over the years while the house stood untouched.

Corballis was demolished and is no longer with us except in memory and in pictures.:(
