Aviation expertise

A multi-disciplined aviation capability including airside, landside and baggage handling system works

  • Providing customers with a multi-disciplined aviation service including pavement and apron works, control tower and terminal construction, tunnelling, and installation of baggage handling facilities
  • Reducing customer energy costs and carbon footprints, by combining our aviation experience with power generation expertise to construct airport energy centres and provide environmental solutions in airport design and construction
  • Improving terminal environments for passengers and staff, and increasing passenger throughput effectively and safely

Airports are unique environments and require a special approach for engineering and construction activity.

Our aviation customers benefit from our experience as the only UK construction company to provide in-house capabilities across the entire range of airport services (airfield works, terminal construction and baggage handling system installation). This includes control tower and energy centre construction, terminal construction and modernisation, and apron, taxiway and runway works - we are one of the country’s leading airfield pavement contractors, having worked on runways and pavements at more than 20 major UK airports.

Because we have built airport terminal buildings, check-in and baggage handling facilities as well as hangars, retail units and lounge areas, we have an in-depth understanding of the security implications of working airside. To assist our customers in meeting capital investment targets and regulatory deadlines, we work closely with airport stakeholders, employees and corporate bodies. This is coupled with a focus on maintaining ‘business as usual’ in live environments, and ensuring that passenger disruption is minimised.

Customers also receive the benefit of our expertise in other sectors including rail, roads, bridges, energy, tunnelling and also defence, where we have completed hangar and airfield work.

Our aviation customers may also be interested in our tunnelling, bridges, roads, retail, energy and defence capabilities.
