In preparing our designs we consider the use of the following;
Taking advantage of these opportunities will yield a reduced environmental impact and CO2 emissions through;
Equally important from a design perspective is the careful assessment and determination of the design input parameters and the undercarriage configurations from heavy aircraft loading.
We take a holistic approach to design and the development of our pavement design philosophy is the subject of close liaison between the end user, design and construction teams and we seek early engagement with the entire supply chain so that we can identify and implement the optimum solution.
Examples of projects we have worked on;
Manchester Airport 2nd Runway Extension Contract 15
Taxiway and Aprons for Northern Executive Airlines
Design of PQ concrete taxiway and apron, airfield ground lighting and extension to SW drainage system
Airbus Broughton Runway Extension
Feasibility study on the options for runway extension to receive the Beluga Cargo Transport Jet.
Airbus Broughton Wing Dispatch Building and Aprons
Design of 60m span hangar type building with heavy cranage, apron design and pavement assessment to receive Beluga cargo transport jet and multi wheeled loader
Airbus Broughton North Factory Wing Dispatch Building
Design and detailing of approximately 45, 000m ² steel fibre reinforced suspended internal concrete floor together with approximately 12,000m² of external hardstanding pavements.
The design of 18, 000m2 over slab to Nimrod AEW Hangar to allow aircraft to be manoeuvred on air skates.
Design of 2400m2 ground bearing floor slab to allow the servicing of Gulfstream G550 aircraft.
Provided specialist design services for the repair of a recently constructed taxiway within an operational environment.
Former Fordoun Airfield, Aberdeen
Design of approximately 60,000m² external fibre reinforced concrete hardstanding to store off-shore drilling pipes applying a line load of 18t/m. Jointing allowed for the use of slip pave technique with only sawn induced joints throughout.
External Pavement Design
Design and detailing of over 10,000,000m² of unreinforced, fabric and fibre reinforced external concrete hardstandings on various industrical projects throughout the UK, Europe, The Middle and Far East. Hardstandings used for access by HGV, reach stackers, tele-handles, containers and aircraft.
