Passenger Terminal Refurbishment and Extension

Following the inauguration of the Passenger Terminal refurbishment and extension (Lotto 1) of Venice Marco Polo Airport, One Works has carried on the first phase of Lotto 2B - part of the airports wider Masterplan project, now under construction.

Phase one of the new airside extension, designed and engineered by One Works, provides 3,500 square meters of new large and comfortable spaces to accommodate the strong growth in Extra Schengen passengers, which today accounts for 32% of the total traffic travelling through the airport, arriving at the ground floor and departing at the first floor, as well as the construction of a new bridge to support the additional passenger flow.

The Programme

As with many airport projects, a quick and complex programme is required with the realization of the first phase in just 24 months.

80% of the works has been achieved in the first 300 days and then paused to open to the public in April 2019 for the high flow of passengers during the 2019 summer season, ensuring daily operations to the airport were not affected. Works have then re-start in October 2019 to complete by Summer 2020, ready for the next phase.

Next Phases

One Works is still working on the next steps of the second phase, which will end in 2025 and comprises the construction of the new north wing, whilst the last phase will be completed in 2027 and foresees the extension to the South.

The final configuration of the terminal will see the two wings symmetrical compared to the original body of the airport and will efficiently manage traffic of over 15 million annual passenger.

“In coherence with the previews extension, the project has been driven by the need to combine tradition and innovation in the best way”

— Giulio De Carli, One Works Managing Partner
