Qantas Domestic Terminal, Sydney
Abstract:The new Qantas Sydney domestic terminal project represented the completion, in August 1999 of more than 5 years work in redeveloping the terminal built in 1974. The design and construction of the terminal involved many challenges including minimizing disruption of Qantas' daily operations and maximizing spans within the buildings to achieve large column free spaces by using post-tensioned concrete throughout. The total area of new construction totals some 80 000 m2 of new space including administration, engineering facilities, passenger lounges and separate arrivals and departures' halls. The project contains a number of unique structures including the departures hall roof and precast concrete roadway.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
SEI is printed in Switzerland; ISSN 1016-8664; E-ISSN 1683-0350
