From the use of modern materials to the innovative application of solar solutions, sustainability is a key pillar in Terminal A’s design.
7,540 solar panel parking shades have been installed on the long-term car park at Terminal A, to perform the dual purpose of shading the cars and reducing carbon emissions.
Terminal A saves 5,300 tonnes of carbon emissions per year, which equates to emissions from 1,060 vehicles (average family usage) for 12 months.
Terminal A is “Green Building Certified” under the PBRS with 3 Pearls at design stage and more than 70% of plants used at terminal’s campus landscaping are native and adaptive species that are both drought and saline resistant. During its construction phase, more than 90% of the steel used was recycled and 82% of the timber used was certified and sourced from legal and sustainable sources. Water efficient fixtures and fittings have been installed throughout Terminal A, resulting in a 45% improvement over the Estidama benchmark figures.
