Security checkpoints

Amsterdam, Schiphol

This project by VolkerWessels Bouw was delivered as a matter of urgency to the client Schiphol, following the television broadcast by SBS in 2008, on safety at Schiphol.

The project

The works were included in the project ‘Vehicle Checkpoints at Schiphol’. Construction works included the technical installations for customizing and redesigning vehicle and personnel check points between the public road and aircraft aprons (between landside and airside). The eventual aim was to be able to fully control and monitor access to the airside areas of Schiphol Airport.

During the works, special measures were taken in order to not disrupt the daily operations of the airport.Security operations are carried out by third parties. It was our responsibility to coordinate with these parties.
