Specialist engineering workshop

Manchester Airport

Organisation : Manchester Airport

Application : Storage, Offices

Product : Ultima

Location : Manchester

Requirement :

While Terminal 2 at Manchester Airport undergoes a £1bn transformation, airside office space and high quality engineering workshops were required to accommodate specialist engineers from Storm Aviation.

The space needed to be capable of providing a modern office environment as well as a specialist engineering workshop. Airside storage of aircraft tyres was essential along with a specialist heating and cooling system inside to maintain a constant air temperature, free from air currents and dirt.

Solution :

Joelle Ivett, Project Manager for MAN-TP, Arcadis said: “The Portakabin team had a fantastic attitude towards safety in this challenging location. Our site was well organised and the on-time delivery of the building enabled us to move tenants in and continue with the transformation programme almost immediately.”

"Along with our teams working so well together, Portakabin has been absolutely key to this project. Their professional approach in wanting to get this job completed and to the highest standards has been refreshing to say the least." Steve Harmer, Operations Manager, Galliford Try Infrastructure – Aviation Management and Construction

The Portakabin solution involved relocating 30 employees for Storm Aviation to a building capable of housing specialist workshops and office space, right outside the existing terminal building. The building matched the tenant’s previous footprint exactly with specialist external tyre cages and a VRV Heat Cool system supplied by Portakabin. With aircraft tyres weighing up to 120kg each, Portakabin also reinforced the floor in the storage area to provide additional support and assurance.

Fully glazed floor to ceiling windows help deliver a lighter, brighter environment for the workforce.
