Sydney Domestic Airport
Alternative Solutions related to smoke hazard management on Terminal 2 following modifications to the main concourse and relocation of aircraft bays. Note: SGA staff in previous employment carried the original fire-safety studies for both T2 (ex Ansett) and T3 (QANTAS Domestic) where alternative solutions were implemented to fire-resistance requirements, smoke hazard management and egress.

Alternative Solutions applied to the separation of buildings where a covered deck unites them. Issues of separation were resolved where buildings have different classification.
Sultan Mahmud Airport, Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia
The airport terminal serves the capital city of the sultanate and Federal State of Terengganu in the East coast of peninsular Malaysia. Extensions and upgrading of the airport terminal required compartmenting the internal space to comply with the Unified Building By-Laws of Malaysia (UBBL). Alternative Solutions were implemented to rationalise on exit aggregate width and also to eliminate internal partitions thereby allowing the internal space to be integrated.
Sydney International Terminal
Major extensions and a number of modifications to Sydney International Terminal have been the subject of Alternative Solutions by Stephen Grubits & Associates. This includes the SA 2000 extension, numerous internal modifications to retail tenancies, modifications to gates to accommodate the Airbus 380 aircraft, enlargement of the baggage handling conveyor system, enlargement or relocation of airline lounges, seamless transfer facilities, airline storage areas, Customs and Quarantine. A most important achievement of the alternative solutions has been to substantially rationalise on exit aggregate width in comparison to what would be required under current building codes.
Brisbane International Terminal
Alternative Solutions related to egress provisions following modifications to the main concourse. Note: SGA staff in previous employment carried the original fire-safety study for the building, where alternative solutions were implemented to fire-resistance requirements, smoke hazard management and egress, achieving substantial cost savings.
