Project: Arrival and Departure Lounges, London City Airport
Site programme:4 weeks
London City Airport experienced unprecedented demand for passenger numbers, which led to an urgent requirement to expand the Arrival and Departure facilities. Working closely with Atkin Global, Premier Modular Limited was appointed as a modular specialist to provide these facilities.
Premier was selected due to their innovative designs, commitment to high levels of safety and service and their continued reliability of delivery, combined with a quality product.
Overcoming very demanding circumstances, the 2,100m² lounges were constructed on the runway apron, next to the water’s edge. The installation team had to work around restricted night time install times and a logistically complex install next to the water. These serious construction constraints meant that reliability was critical. Premier planned their transport and install meticulously to ensure installation was carried out to plan in a very short space of time.
Premier’s steel frame modular construction system was so innovative that it was also able to provide a modular link bridge between the main airport building and the new lounge facilities.
This project demonstrates the Company’s original and meticulous approach to meet extremely challenging requirements.
