The ground run-up enclosure at Bangkok is sized for up to an A380 and acceptance testing was carried out with B747-400 and B777-300ER. Due to the unique civil constraints, which included a very high groundwater table, BDI was tasked with providing a more cost-effective approach by building the GRE superstructure atop an existing run-up pad. Due to existing concrete joints, this required the incorporation of a number of unique foundation design details.
