Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok is one of the busiest airports in South East Asia and works as an important link connecting Europe with the Asia/Pacific region and vice versa. Moreover, it serves as a home base for the strong carrier Thai Airways.
After completion of the airport various types of distresses were identified and a condition survey was carried out. This survey included among others a comprehensive testing program to determine the cause of the distresses and the recommended remediation procedures.
In 2011 Ramboll was engaged to carry out an assessment of the detailed condition survey report, which was produced by another consultant to determine the causes for development of distresses on the pavement. In addition to this, Ramboll was appointed by the design consultant for the works to carry out an assessment of the recommended remediation procedures and propose alternatives if required. Furthermore, the potential cost to carry out the proposed remediation works were part of the assessment.
