Stansted Airport. Image: Pascal+WatsonFollowing our appointment to work with architect Pascall+Watson on phases 2 and 3 of the Stansted Transformation Project, Ramboll has secured further work at the airport. In addition to the tender design for the arrivals building that was delivered in summer 2018 and our continuing work designing the reconfiguration of the existing terminal to provide expanded departures facilities, Ramboll’s recent instruction includes the design of a new Coaching Building. This will deliver an additional nine coaching gates with skylinks, providing connectivity to the existing Satellite piers 2 and 3 and represents another important step in the expansion of the airport’s capacity to 43 mppa.  We are pleased to be delivering an innovative design that minimises the impact on the operation of the airport on what is a highly constrained airside site.

Heat Networks Delivery Unit (Part of BEIS)

Wembley Park. Image QuintainRamboll has secured three mapping and masterplanning projects with Heat Networks Delivery Unit (part of BEIS) for Hartlepool, St Albans and Colchester. Drawing on Ramboll’s extensive expertise in district energy networks, the three studies aim to map heat demands across each area and to identify and assess cost-effective opportunities for low carbon heat network development. Where appropriate, the studies will also consider opportunities for combined heating, cooling and power generation. These studies differ from the majority of previous HNDU projects in that they are fully funded by BEIS and there has to date been relatively little in the way of local engagement. This presents considerable challenges in terms of local energy and related data acquisition, and securing local participation in any projects moving forward. Ramboll will use lessons learned from many previous HNDU studies, combined with considerable expertise in GIS mapping, energy benchmarking and modelling, to ensure these projects are delivered rapidly and effectively, highlighting and quantifying the benefits of key network and low carbon energy solutions to foster local interest in their future development.
