About the Project

The Hold Baggage System (HBS) Upgrade at Dublin Airport was successfully completed in May 2023 resulting in improved security, increased capacity and full compliance with incoming international security regulations. This €200 million project was deployed over a four year period which included upgrading more than 14 kilometres of conveyor belts and the overall baggage system.

As well as providing the mechanical and electrical infrastructure requirements of the HBS system, the project also involved the extensive renovation and alteration of the airport baggage halls and the construction of a new Baggage Control Building that includes support spaces, staff areas, control rooms etc. IN2 carried out the full MEP design for the entire project which also included works to the airport’s main electrical infrastructure.

As always, IN2 will use a low energy approach to the project design to ensure reduced carbon and energy usage where possible. IN2 used a range of solutions including the use of Air Source Heat Pumps, low energy lighting and natural ventilation. All these solutions were possible due to our comprehensive Environmental Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics.
