Midfield Terminal

Abu Dhabi Airports Company are building Midfield Terminal at Abu Dhabi Airport. The project involves construction of a 1.1 kilometre long, 6 storey terminal building.

The terminal building has been designed in the shape of an ‘X’ which will include a luxury hotel and spa, duty free area, restaurants, executive lounges and an indoor car parking area.

The 50 meter high building will have a capacity of more than 30 million passengers a year and will cover an area of 700,000 square meters.

Zutec commenced working on the Midfield Terminal with the client ADAC in 2016. The online Zutec platform provides services in various areas on the project.

The first of those being Work Inspection Requests, before the Zutec solution was deployed on the project the requests were taking anything from 14 – 21 days to turnaround but once the system was up and running on the project the turnaround was reduced to 2 days.

Secondly, the Zutec Onsite Tool enabled the users to carry out the Work Inspection Requests on their mobile devices.

Like most construction sites, Midfield can have limited connectivity, but using the onsite tool the user can carry out their inspection capability in an offline mode while onsite.

The app enables the users to download the inspections before they go to site, markup the checklists and drawings while offline and then they can be synced when they return to their offices.

While carrying out inspections, photographs taken with the onsite tool are dated and time stamped which aids the user when making legitimate recordings of progress or site conditions on specific inspection dates.

Another valuable tool on Midfield is the Commissioning Inspection Request, using the site diary enables the user to capture information from site and provides a single point of truth for all information. Snagging and defect recordings enable the client to find gaps in the specification for contractual deliverables

Room Close Out was an important requirement of the Zutec platform on Midfield and using a room database and an efficient handover management process which enables the user to view details on items such as which Air Handling Unit/FDB serve which room, which in turn aids with efficient room closures.

Zutec was also used to analyse data and to align room completion with the Commissioning Plan, in-order to achieve the target completion dates. By integrating the data with Microsoft Power BI, Zutec are able to provide comprehensive Progress Reports that are accurate on a daily basis.

As with all new builds, Midfield Terminal required a comprehensive Asset Resister which was built and delivered complete with linked O&M records and documentation. The register will aid in Facility Management, helping the FM team build PPM schedules enabling them to run an efficient facility.

Recording of HR documentation for items such as Training Records and Fire & Life Safety Records will also be available on the Zutec platform.

The Zutec system is being used for overall Document Management; segments of the plans in detailed documentation can be sparse or unavailable, the online platform is being used for project progress monitoring
