ADP Commissions Oxand

THE OXAND Group, specialising in civil engineering and Risk Management Solutions, has been selected by Aeroports de Paris (AdP) to initiate a structural monitoring programme for its buildings.  The airport operator wishes to set up a long-term optimized maintenance system for the entire range of its built assets.  It has awarded Oxand the project to design and implement a risk-management-based surveillance system that AdP departments can subsequently apply to all the infrastructures of its three international airports; Charles de Gaulle, Orly, and Le Bourget.
AdP has around 1,000 buildings, essentially located at these major airports and some of these structures were built in the 1960s and now require intensified structural monitoring and appropriate maintenance.  Oxand says AdP: “wants to set up a continuous optimized monitoring system for all of its buildings.”  It adds that: “the new programme integrates AdP’s high-stake strategic objectives in terms of both safety and the extended life of the facilities.”
The assets fall into five categories: terminals, hangars, industrial buildings, tertiary buildings and parking facilities.  A building, thought to be a typical representative of each of the five categories, has been selected and Oxand has now taken charge of the risk analysis for these five installations.  It must now provide a: “monitoring guideline” adapted to the specific technical and strategic features of each category, plus a maintenance prioritization plan.  For this project, Oxand is developing an information management and processing system as a tool for elaborating customized monitoring scenarios and for optimizing AdP’s maintenance performance and costs.  The system will then be implemented over the whole building stock by the airport group’s different divisions responsible for such operations.
