The Qantas Link Lounge is a new building extension off the existing Northern Satellite link. The new lounge provides two new loading gates and seating for regional Qantas passengers. The new lounge structure has been designed to replicate the existing terminal aesthetics and structure.
All floor slabs and supporting columns were designed and constructed from reinforced concrete. Loadbearing walls were a mixture of precast concrete (on boundary), insitu concrete and concrete masonry for efficiency and cost effectiveness.
Due to the existing in ground conditions the existing terminal structure has settled over time. With advice from the geotechnical engineer the new structure has been detailed to accommodate differential settlement between the new and existing structures. The Qantas Link Lounge has also been designed to accommodate the client’s future expansion plans.
