BASIC CONSIDERATIONS FOR OFFSHORE AIRPORT CONSTRUCTION

The basic considerations suggested for the construction of an offshore airport are: (1)Safe construction; (2)functional requirements; (3)operational efficiency; (4)convenience; (5)costs; (6)regional goals; (7)provisions for future; (8)state-of-the-art; and (9)acceptability. The construction plan which emerges as a result of the preceding basic considerations must include all those details that are required to produce a balanced, integrated, flexible, and economical offshore airport, in harmony with the environment. The marine platform and the access routes will require special considerations in the construction of an offshore airport. The major problems will be on account of the large-scale difficult and unprecedented construction over water, the logistics, and the pollution of the marine environment.
