Future Growth prospected of Indian Aviation Industry:

The civil aviation industry in India has emerged as one of the fastest growing industries in the country during the last three years. India is currently considered the third largest domestic civil aviation market in the world. India is expected to become the world’s largest domestic civil aviation market in the next 10 to 15 years.

Domestic air traffic rose 17.69 per cent year-on-year in December 2017, continuing its double digit growth, according to the civil aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). About 11.24* million passengers flew in December 2017, up from 9.55 million a year earlier.

There is planning# to expand connectivity and meet potential demand by establishing about 100 airports, doubling the current number in 15 years. Out of these, 70 will be locations that don’t have such a facility, while the rest will be second airports or the expansion of existing airfields to handle commercial flights

Industry Spokesperson - Prof. Charanjit S Shah Founder Principal-Creative Group, New Delhi

news-mar18-img6ab.jpgProf Charanjit Singh Shah is an architect, planner & infrastructure expert with 5 decades of practice. He is a practicing architect, planner, author, scholar, educationist, teacher, art & architecture critic & practicing in creating sustainable green architecture. He is the author of many books in architecture & recently authored “Redefining Indian Sustainable Smart Cities”.

His works speaks of his contribution looking beyond architecture & development of large infrastructure projects like airports, metro stations, railway stations, transit-oriented development, inter-modal hubs and creating sustainable, walkable, cyclable neighborhood and creating ‘Indian Sustainable Smart Cities of Tomorrow’. He is being adorably called as AIRPORT KING.

Dr. S.S. Bhatti, has been tempted call Prof Shah the ‘Patrick Geddes of India’ in creating sustainable architecture. Prof. Shah has also successfully initiated ‘Smart Habitat Foundation’ – a centre of excellence in pursuit of art and architecture, urban planning, transport and infrastructure and a platform where academicians and practitioners come together to interact in form of a serious dialogue bridging the gap between academics and practical application CREATIVE GROUP is one of the leading international architecture and design practices based in New Delhi, India that offers services in Architecture and Urban Planning, Project Management, Financial Analysis, Construction Management, Engineering and Building Consultancy. Creative Group moves forward with the philosophy that 'a built form should not be treated as a dead mass of brick and concrete, but as a living organism, allowing it to breathe with nature’. Established in 1973 by Prof. Charanjit S Shah, the firm has 45+ years of experience delivering award-winning architectural projects across Infrastructure, Aviation, Real Estate, Commercial, Institutional, Industrial and Corporate sectors.

According to him, aviation is a gateway of a city and now has become a necessity rather than a luxury. Aviation has a large scope in India as connectivity is required pertaining to urbanization. Additionally, short town connectivity is required nowadays. We are going to see many small and large airports coming up in India in the next 5 years. We are going to see around 500 small or domestic airports in the next few years.

Focusing on construction methodology, he feels that most of airports in India have been constructed in steel structures due to benefits like possibility of a large span, dynamic design, easily expandable, low cost and long life. He feels that architects, consultants and steel fabricators should work together to create prototype designs of pre-fabricated structures for terminal buildings which can be installed quickly. Additionally, other facilitates required like cargo terminals, hangars etc. where steel has become an obvious choice for construction, should be readily available with different modules for faster execution in future.

For a terminal building, the design plays a vital role therefore an architect should choose a simplistic and dynamic design with an ideal clear span of 32-35 M and distance between the columns should be 14-16 M. This spacing makes the terminal building more efficient and affordable. An architect should understand factors like air traffic, air space, and other factors like environment & social impact, air space conflicts before finalizing the design.

According to him, through the last many years various types of structures like space frames, nodes, trusses, plate portal have been used for making airports in India but now he foresees large span and prefabricated steel structures which are light weight, expandable, economical, aesthetical to eye, being used in time to come. The architect should also use fire paints to provide fire safety for 1.5 hours as per National Building code.

On the typical size of terminal building, Prof Shah feels that the size of the terminal building can range from 5000 sqm to 40,000 sqm to 80,000 sqm where both domestic and international operations take place. The minimum size of a building should be 5000 Sqm where a smaller plane, an ATR-72 comes with a load of 150 passengers, to and fro every hour. The time period to execute the smaller airports is around 3 months whereas it takes 18 months to complete a large airport. For example, the Chennai airport is around 1, 35, 000 sqm and it took 18 months to finish the construction.

For constructing a green building, design must focus on sustainable architecture to gain parameter to attain IGBC rating. An architect should follow sustainable architecture; passive design practices along with the placement of the building and the orientation of the building are some very important factors to keep in mind. One has to find ways to maximize the daylight and minimize the heat gain in the building.
Mr. Shah feels that pre-fabricated steel is the only material of the future which has the maximum advantages - versatile material, faster and most appropriate to construct terminal buildings in India

Why Steel is obvious choice- Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 (T5)

news-mar18-img11.jpgHeathrow Terminal 5 is an airport terminal at Heathrow Airport, the main airport serving London. Opened in 2008, the main building in the complex is the largest free-standing structure in the United Kingdom

**The main terminal building is 396 metres (1,299 ft) long, 176 metres (577 ft) wide and 40 metres (130 ft) tall. It is the largest building in the Terminal 5 complex and is the largest free-standing building in the United Kingdom. Its four stories are covered by a single-span undulating steel frame roof, with glass façades angled at 6.5 degrees to the vertical. The area covered by the roof is the size of five football pitches, and each section weighs 2,200 tonnes.

One of the main drivers was to reduce site work and this was achieved by providing large pre-fabricated units of up to 55 tonnes each that were bolted together at low level to form the central section of the roof. The arch is formed from steel box girders at 18m centres: 800mm wide and up to 3.8m deep. These are tied at high level by pairs of 115mm diameter pre-stressed steel cables. 914mm diameter steel arms reach up from the tops of the legs to support the rafters, and solid steel tie-down straps from the frame structure. The splices in the central arched section of the rafters always carry net compression. Therefore, they can transfer forces from section to section in bearing.

Latest trends in technology to watch out for in 2018: Aviation Industry

news-mar18-img12.jpgBiometrics: Facial recognition technology has been the biometric of choice in many trials, there is little doubt that biometrics will play an increasingly important role in creating a more secure and seamless passenger experience.

The biometrics works in this way that the airports deployed biometric facial recognition technology and passengers have their photo taken, their face is checked against the image held in the biometric chip of their e-passport, or against an airline's passenger manifest, and they move on through the airport without the need for a manual identity check.

It is asserting that facial recognition technology will make the airport experience easier for passengers. Biometrics can also be deployed for such things as entry to airport lounges and for purchases at duty-free stores. Also, at security gates as well as at boarding gates, passengers won't have to keep track of passports, driver's licenses and boarding passes, making the airport journey easier.
