Gerrard & Medd undertook the interior planning for the re-development of the Terminal Building at Sumburgh Airport in Shetland for Highlands & Islands Airports.  

The unique pass-through check-in desks we designed  provide paired check-in facilities to meet the unique mix of domestic and off-shore traffic at Sumburgh. Designed for flexibility of use, they also reflect the need to keep maintenance to a minimum at this remote station, without in any way compromising the need for high security control on all passenger baggage.

Passengers check-in, then take the checked-in bags to the scanning machines at security.  All off-shore bags are hand searched with 100% screening on all other passengers in their presence.  The illustration shows the design as installed.
