Airport Planning and Development

Deerns takes a holistic approach to developing airports. An airport to us is not merely a collection of buildings and runways: it is an important entity in local and national economies and societies. Airports generate employment and increase the connectivity of a city with the rest of the nation and the world. As such designing airports is a responsibility we do not take lightly. Deerns provides a service portfolio that helps our clients build safe, sustainable and comfortable airport environments. Airports are constantly in flux. Airports are cornerstones in our global economy. As such countries rely on them for the connection to the world.

Thus holistic airport planning and development is vital to sustain airport operations in the long run. Deerns is able to assist airport in a variety of ways with their strategic planning and development that is based on operational experience, process expertise and state-of-the-art technical knowledge. Our early engagement with a project enables clients and architects to understand the implications of the demands presented by the airport processes and regulations at an early stage. We are able to translate stakeholders' requirements into technical solutions and integrate them into the operational airport environment.

Airport Systems Design

Deerns is one of the few engineering consultancies with in-depth expertise in virtually all facets of airport systems design and processes; Security, Telecommunications, Passenger Processes, Baggage Handling, Aircraft Ground Handling, Airfield Ground Lighting and Navigational Aids.

The importance and complexity of technology within the airport environment is growing rapidly. Airports rely on a number of specialized systems in order to facilitate airport-specific processes. As a result, independent consulting engineers are vital to the success of airport development, construction and operation. These systems deal with communications information and the processing of passengers and their baggage, the aircraft ground handling and the aeronautical navigation and surveillance.

Advisory Services

In addition, Deerns provides advice to airports in planning stages and throughout the operation. We make a wide range of skills, knowledge and experience available to our clients. Research projects may involve operational studies, technical analyses and reviews of policies or procedures. When new opportunities or solutions are identified we are able to assess their feasibility and develop business cases for their implementation.

We combine our knowledge of the operational environment with detailed technical knowledge of systems and equipment to best serve our clients. We maintain our position at the forefront of technological developments by participating in industry initiatives and establishing best practices. Our staff are involved in the drafting of various industry standards.

We see asset management not only as a way of cutting costs, but as a way of creating benefits. It is a source of innovation for the creation of new revenue streams. Communication and information technology provide a continuous stream of new possibilities for monitoring, analysing and optimizing everything that goes on at the airport. By combining knowledge from a wide range of projects in infrastructure and the built environment, we are able to realise the full potential of airport facilities.less
