KUWAIT BURJ AL SHAYA (FOUR SEASONS HOTEL) - HELIPAD PLANNING AND DESIGN

Areas of Expertise: Heliport and Helipad Planning

Country: Arab States: Kuwait

This planning and design study was commissioned by KEO Consult to provide planning and conceptual design to enable helicopter access to the Burj Al Shaya development. This development consists of a Four Seasons Hotel and an adjacent office tower with the top floors of the office tower allocated as a VIP area. The proposed helipad will be located above these VIP floors on top of the office tower. The aim of this study was to provide KEO Consult and their partners with key information concerning the optimum location and size for a rooftop helipad to be located on the roof of the office tower currently under construction.  The aim was to plan and design an acceptable degree of helicopter access, and to identify the other facilities and services that are necessary to support helicopter operations to/from the helipad located at the Burj Al Shaya complex.

The local obstacle environment is important to ensure that acceptable approach and departure paths can be identified for helicopter operations. For the Burj Al Shaya, assessment of the obstacles was carried out and enabled a design to be confirmed that permits helicopter operations to take place on alignments that are closely aligned with the prevailing winds.

Areas of Expertise: Airport Master Planning, Heliport and Helipad Design

Country: Arab States: Qatar

LEAPP was appointed to prepare a Master Plan for development of the Al Khor Airport northwest of Doha.  The Master Plan was intended to provide an airport that could accommodate regional air passenger traffic however the principal development proposed for the site was a major helicopter base for offshore air transport to oil and gas platforms.  LEAPP designed the new Helicopter Operating Base and facilities for helicopter maintenance, repair and overhaul for Gulf Helicopters.  The development of the Airport within the Master Plan was planned to cover three phases, initially aimed at accommodating operations that would need to be relocated from the Doha International Airport.  A review of possible airport business opportunities for the airport site was undertaken by LEAPP which was based on private sector financing and initiatives. A commercial model was developed to analyse the value of the businesses to the airport owners. Included in this was an assessment of the revenue potential to the airport and justification for the assignment of lands for specific commercial uses.
