Brussels South Charleroi Airport
The Charleroi-Brussels South airport can now accommodate long-haul flights after years of study and work. The project involved the extension of the runway from 2,550 meters to 3,200 meters, and the construction of a new storm basin to collect surface runoff water.
The extension work involved several operations, such as:
- removing and treating contaminated land,
- soil consolidation using techniques such as inclusions and stone columns,
- improving water drainage,
- treating and reinforcing the earth, and
- constructing hydrant pits and airport roads, including the runway, ramps, and de-icing area.
Our company was responsible for carrying out the various stages of the project, including the preliminary and final design, tender documents, construction drawings, project management, and final as-built documentation.
TPF Engineering was responsible for the Civil Engineering aspect of the project, which included conducting a preliminary design study, a project study, analyzing the consultation file and offers, preparing the execution file, providing assistance with works management, and collaborating on provisional acceptance.
