Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport Karlsruhe
Until it was discovered as a site for passenger traffic back in 2003, the former military base mainly welcomed charter flights. In view of increasing passenger numbers, the operating company decided to renovate and extend the site. Baden Airpark GmbH wanted "everything from a single source" and commissioned KREBS+KIEFER as general planner, together with an additional engineering firm. Within a year the team successfully planned the construction methods and processes, obtained all permits and certificates and coordinated the tender process.
The construction was carried out in two stages during ongoing flight operations. As a first step, the main runway was widened. Planes took off and landed on that runway while the eventual runway was being renovated and reinforced, and received stripes and safety surfaces for Class D aircraft (Boeing 747, DC 10). The renovation and construction of a complete runway system, the so-called "apron", the de-icing areas and a helipad were completed over the course of a single season.
