The terminal, with more than half a million square meters built, constitutes one of the largest buildings built of Europe.

Among its most representative elements are the cover of 150,000 square meters of corrugated steel, its facades ‘Transparent’ thanks to a curtain wall that covers all the surface, or the ‘canyons’, empty spaces between the ground of the platform and deck through which natural lighting penetrates to the lower levels of the building. Special mention requires also the ceiling bamboo, which increases sensations of warmth and visual comfort to the passenger, or the 550 skylights, which allow the entry of naturallight and enable the reduction of energy consumption.

The terminal, which is connected to the Satellite building through the three kilometers long airport services tunnel, it has a parking lot with capacity for 9,000 vehicles divided into six modules. These have a cover continuous plant of more than 56,500 square meters, which the positions as the largest plant area continues in Europe.

Responsables

La sostenibilidad ha sido una de las prioridades del proyecto de ampliación del aeropuerto, integrando en el territorio los aspectos medioambientales, sociales y culturales más significativos.

El diseño constructivo del proyecto consigue la penetración de una gran cantidad de luz natural que junto con la instalación de 550 lucernarios, se posibilita la reducción de los consumos energéticos.

La ejecución de la T4 ha supuesto el uso de tecnología puntera propia y de un diseño innovador que permitirá posibles ampliaciones en el futuro.

La nueva terminal del aeropuerto ha consolidado a Madrid como el principal nodo aéreo en España y como uno de los destinos más importantes a nivel europeo y mundial
